The Sonics’ well-rounded roster gave them the advantage as each player made their own contribution.

Raven started off the run with a strong layup while making contact for the and-one play. John Diaz, Aldrin and Christian also chipped in a bucket each while Matt drained one from behind the arc to aid in their 20-6 lead by the end of the first half.

The Rollers picked up the pace during the second quarter with more penetrations to try and get back within reach.

However, only Gerald could slip past the Sonics’ line of defense as he put up six consecutive points remaining behind by a huge gap.

Sonics’ Raven continued to deliver dropping six more points alongside Brandon and Diaz holding the comfortable lead straight to victory 41-20.

The G-Rollers managed to redeem their younger brothers as they nearly silenced the DanDan Sonics.

It was the G-Rollers’ defense that kept them in control leaving Sonics very little room to breathe.

With each successful stop, Dillan Cruz and Ervin Villarin opened up the run with back to back buckets while Salas and Eli Castro ignited the second half to claim the win with ease 52-8.
