They had great passing plays sharing the ball among each other allowing Jack Lizama, Dan Barcinas, Keoni Chariton to score six points each with the help of Quincy Johnson who added a shot from beyond the arc.

Proa held KFC down to just 13 points keeping their opponents missing from all sides of the court. But KFC picked up their game in the second quarter when Lerio Pagarao, Angelo Fernando and Mark Brown started to find their shots.

But KFC needed to make more than a few shots to cut the lead down to single digit.

Proa’s Erick Delarosa highlighted the second quarter when he scored eight points straight helping his team keep the big lead.

Pagarao, Fernando and Eugene Manglona continued to push forward and rack points for their team. But with such a big gap made by Proa, KFC could not close the gap and Proa took the win by 10 points, 72-62.

San Roque 77, Blazers 61

San Roque had another easy win with the second game of the night picking up their record winning 77-61 against the winless Blazers.

San Roque started off with great defense as they held down the Blazers to scoring only seven points while San Roque’s Shane Deleon Guerrero, Melvin Cadiang and Sheen Metran stretched the lead to double digits with their inside game and quick slashes to the basket.

The Blazers started to see their shots in the second quarter when Sean Sablan and Luther Taylor were fed more often getting heated up sharing six points each.

Cadiang continued to score inside the paint with the help of DeleonGuerrero’s quickness and jumpers keeping the Blazers from closing in.

Rodney Sacramento started to shine in the second half driving in the paint forcing fouls and even bomb a three-pointer to end the third quarter.

With such a big gap between San Roque and Blazers, time was of the essence and San Roque continued to share the ball with the bench and took the win 77-61.
