The game started tough with Chowtime taking offensive.

Guards Jess Pineda and Jomac Manzano scored four points apiece while Mark Asuhan powered his way inside to take the lead, 18-11.

Islander’s rhythm started to shine in the second quarter when Sean Robasto fired seven points, including a triple, paired up with Rico Ibag closing the gap.

However Chowtime kept their heads straight as Peter Ariar equalized with six points supported by the rest of the team to hold control 32-27.

The momentum started to shift during the third canto as Islander’s defense kicked in. Chowtime scored only six points while Ibag and Robasto stayed consistent snatching the lead 39-38.

Chowtime’s big men to bullied their way inside the paint but fatigue was another enemy they were facing as they could not keep up with Robasto and Ibag’s output escaping with the win 53-50.

Hong Ye 63, Batang 58

Hong Ye triumphed over Batang 63-58.

Hong Yu stayed in charge from start as their whole team contributed. Eugene Manglona and Hal Spot carried the first quarter with 10 points and Mervin Sahagun stole the second quarter with seven points alone to lead 30-28.

Batang’s Dick Tibayan took a solo flight as he continuously delivered to keep the team close by. Despite Tibayan’s efforts, Hong Ye worked as a team to hold on surviving every incoming attack to grasp the win 63-58.
