PNP Responders’ eyes are firmly on the prize this off season as it continues to bulldoze its way to the playoffs after routing Senate Sentinels at Sunday’s main game, 86-64.

PSupt Joel De Mesa led the PNP in keeping its 6-0 lead with his 21-point finish with 4 rebounds.

“Salamat sa Dios, salamat sa pag-guide sa amin at saka yung effort talaga, team effort from the players and the coaching staff nagwo-work talaga, nag ge-gel kami,” PNP Responders Head Coach SPO2 Alfred Suarez said.

(Thanks be to God. Thank you for the guidance and for the team effort from the players and the coaching staff. It really works, we gel together.)

Senate attributed its second defeat to the absence of its ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara.

“Si Senator Joel [Villanueva] kasi may hamstring injury si Senator Sonny [Angara] naman yung tuhod nya medyo sumasakit. It bothered him sa mga previous game namin, so malaking kawalan,” Senate Sentinels Head Coach Mike Fermin said.

(Senator Joel has a hamstring injury while Senator Sonny was complaining of knee pains. It was bothering him in our previous games so it’s a big loss really.)

DOJ Justice Boosters, meanwhile, widens berth to playoffs after handing AFP Cavaliers its fourth consecutive loss, 77-69.

The recent defeat further obscures AFP’s chances of defending their title while DOJ needs to win two more games to survive the elimination rounds.

Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Nonilon Tagalicud lifted DOJ with 21 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.

“Medyo maganda nilaro namin sa defense. Siguro kailangan pa naming manalo next game,” DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said.

(We had good defense plays so we need to win in the next game.)

Ombudsman Graft Busters also gained more chances of qualifying to the final four after clobbering GSIS Thunder Furies, 62-42.
