At first Hawaiian Rock plays as equals mainly with the help of David Allan leading the break with four points to trail 11-14.

However as soon as Best Deal started to make their shots they never looked back.

Big man Andy Mortos has been consistent from the start as he collected 10 points throughout the first half along with Roland Rueda who scored 12 straight points to push the gap 24-15.

Hawaiian Rock continued to struggle as they could only put up eight points while Best Deal capitalized pushing a 30-point lead 64-34.

Hawaiian Rock pulled out all the string during the final quarter. Mel Baurile, Dondie Pulga and James Reyes took over sinking four points apiece but it was still not enough to pull a comeback settling for the loss early in the game 89-48.

MJD Construction 89, Coca-Cola 74

MJD Construction played strong right from the start as each of the players had a feel for the ball. Cecelio Bisana and JR Del Castillo combined for 12 points aiding in a comfortable lead. Even with Coca-Cola pushing for retaliation with Meljune Capalad and Edward Armia leading the attack, they failed to stop MJD’s productivity falling deeper in the pit 33-48.

Coca-Cola’s biggest break came during the final quarter as they fired up from beyond the arc with Mark Nuique draining six points right beside Armia and Capalad but it was never enough to steal the win bowing down to MJD 89-74.

Triple J also joined the winners’ circle as they barely broke a sweat defeating D&Q/CTSI 107-69.
