Pacific Eco bagged the second game of the night as they rallied through the second and third quarter to take down Far East with ease 70-59.

Pacific Eco had a slow start as they struggled to find their rhythm. Only Broncano was effective inside the paint as he led the opening quarter with 11 points alone while only two others combined for six points. Far East, on the other hand, exploded as Mel Capalad and Jayrlyn shot the lights out putting up nine and six points respectively to hold the advantage 22-17.

However Pacific Eco started to heat up at the second canto as Broncano’s momentum spread throughout the rest of the team. Demonteverde fired up sizzling eight points alone with Rebusquillo and Pineda chipping in a combined seven points while leaving Far East in the dust who struggled making only six points 34-28.

Far East tried to get back in the game but just could not get out of the gutter as their missed shots continued to feed Pacific Eco on the other end falling to a 12-point deficit. Jayrlyn tied to take matters into his own hands during the final quarter scoring 12 points but their inability to stop Pacific Eco’s offensive output ended in defeat 70-59.

Albertos 78, Pacman 670 48

Albertos remain one of the top teams to beat as they added another win to their record with the dominant victory over Pacman 670 78-48.

Right from the start Albertos held a steady offensive pace gaining the double digit lead. Their run was carried by Mark Ferrer who contributed 11 points by the end of the first half alongside Jandoc, Ritual and Esteves for the 20 point lead 43-19.

Pacman 670 finally made their way out of the drought during the third quarter as Joseph Torres and Bryan Natividad started to sink their shots with a combined 14 points but Albertos never looked back and continued to fire at will to secure the win early 78-48.
