Bong Go sparks Team Duterte victory

SECRETARY Christopher "Bong" Go sparked Team Duterte's 107-101 overtime victory over Philippine Air Force in their friendly basketball contest on New Year's Eve at Genesis 88 Gym.

Go sank 12 triples all the way to his game-best 56 points as Team Duterte blew the Airmen out in the extension.

The Special Assistant to the President (SAP) was incredible all throughout hitting big shots one after the other marked with a pull-up jumper in the winding seconds in regulation that tied the game at 94-all and brought the game into overtime.

Joel Aberilla and Eugene Labor added 12 points apiece for Team Duterte. Glen Escandor made 11 points on a great shooting night.

PAF put up a good fight engaging Team Duterte to a down the wire finish.

Chok Gacayan scored 23 points to pace the Airmen who also drew 19 from Belleza and 17 from Delgra.

Team Duterte dominated the first three periods behind Go's raining treys.

But PAF managed to climb back in the game in the final canto courtesy of Delgra and Gacayan's own barrage of three pointers. (Rico Jhone Biliran)
