MAKATI CITY, Philippines — An 11-point lead was thumping in the hands of the Judiciary Magis, leaving the Malacañang Kamao distraught in the main game of Sunday’s triple header.

The two-time defending champion stunned Kamao early on by dominating the first quarter with scores 20-6.

In the third quarter, however, the Malacanang team was able to steal the lead with only 2 minutes left, 47 – 46; but the Judiciary quickly regained the advantage, 53-52.

The Judiciary’s offense remained intense in the last quarter, until the last buzzer of the ball game, securing the 2nd place in the team standings with a 7-1 win-loss record.

With 25 points, including five shots from the 3-point territory, 9 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals, Chester Tolomia was hailed as the best player of the game.

Team Malacañang falls to the 4th place with a 5-2 win-loss record.

In the second game, the BOC Transformers claims their seventh win in a row after turning the winning momentum of the MMDA Black Wolves upside down ending the ball game with scores 84 – 71.

The Transformers’ slate remains unblemished with no games lost, while the MMDA plunges with 4-4 win-loss record.

And in the Responders-Firefighters hard court action, the BFP brings home a disappointing 2-point loss, after being extinguished by the three-time runner-up team, 86-84.

Ollan “The Sniper” Omiping was hailed as the best player of the game after drilling 21 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists alongside Harold Sta. Cruz with 9 points and 11 boards.

MANILA, Philippines —The Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) is waiting for results of the samples of ashes and electrical wiring they sent to laboratories from the burnt Manila Pavilion Hotel and Casino.

Through this the BFP can determine whether the fire broke out because of faulty electrical wiring or arson.

“The burned wiring were taken for micro electro analysis also to determine if electrical fault caused the fire,” BFP chief of public information services FSupt. Joanne Vallejo.

However, the fire bureau noted that it is just the first phase of the investigation since the agency still has to determine the source of the fire and interview witnesses to strengthen its probe.

The BFP is certain that the fire started on the ground floor before reaching the seventh floor of the 22-storey building.

“We are doing our job with thoroughness. Ide-determine po natin kung may responsibilidad sa pangyayaring ito ay dapat po nating mailabas sa imbestigasyon ,” said Vallejo.

(We are doing our job with thoroughness. We will determine the ones responsible for this incident.)

The BFP reminded the public to always ensure that their electrical wiring in their homes is in good condition and to keep matches or candles away from materials that could easily burn.

The public is also advised to call BFP hotlines immediately in case of fire. — Aiko Miguel | UNTV News & Rescue

Iconic Kamuning Bakery catches fire

by UNTV News   |   Posted on Tuesday, February 6th, 2018

MANILA, Philippines — At past 12 am on February 6, the Kamuning Bakery in Quezon City went ablaze.

According to the Bureau of Protection (BFP), the fire was caused by embers left from another fire incident that happened yesterday in an establishment beside the bakery.

“We are looking into the possibility that ember from the fire incident earlier went in. The flooring of the second floor is pure light materials or timber. And the storage room contains a lot of stuff such as paper and other things,” said BFP QC chief investigator Insp. Rosendo Cabillan.

Kamuning Bakery has been operating for seventy years. — UNTV News & Rescue

(We had a talk before January and asked ourselves, ‘Are we going to stop being champions just like that?’ Since the first quarter, we really employed tight defense because that is where we are lacking.)

With this victory, Coach Artemmio Marquez’s side eases to a 5-4 win loss standing.

“Nagkaroon ng sagot yung puspusan naming practice noong mga nakaraang araw, so nagpapasalamat ako kay Lord buti nanalo kami … yung buong team nabuhayan,” Coach Marquez said.

(Our hard practices before this game, really paid off. So, I thank the Lord for this win; our team was rejuvenated.)

With the loss, the Furies drops to a 5-5 win-loss standing, while the Builders are in a comfortable spot with 7 games won and two games lost.

And in the main game, Malacañang-PSC Kamao defeated the Senate Defenders in a neck-and-neck battle, 63-59, and now holds a big chance to gain the twice-to-beat advantage in the semifinal round with seven games won and two games lost.

The Palace hoopsters’ strong defense limited Senate’s big men Jeffrey Sanders with only 8 points and Marlon Legaspi with only 4 points.

“Talagang tiwala lang sa mga players ko, dahil paglabas talaga namin sa dug out, nag-usap-usap sila na defense lang talaga para makuha namin itong game na ito,” Coach Raffy Gonzales narrated.

(It’s really about having trust in my players because the moment they came out of the dugout,  they agreed that they need to play defense seriously in order to win this game.)

Christian Luanzon was named the best player of the game with 14 points, 9 rebounds, 4 assists and 1 block.
