Tuesday, March 18, 2014
SHY-to-brag Braga rolled to its second straight win with a 77-61 decision over Ricaldone in Don Bosco Alumni Athletic Association Saturday at 8 p.m. JGC gym at Goldenfields Commecial Complex in Bacolod City.
Monchiero followed suit beating Rinaldi, 60-48 while Ziggiotti whacked Bragion with a lopsided 82-40 demolition job. Bosco entered the win column for a 1-1 slate after upsetting Rua, 50-43 joining Bragion and Rinaldi at the team standing.
Rua and Ricaldoni are still winless in two outings.
Arthur Manuel Monge topscored with 14 points for Bosco negating the 21-point combined output of Rua's Chuck Paez and Christian Bernabe who sparked a 13-6 first quarter surge only to be outplayed 36-25 at the end of third.
Braga relied on the shooting touch of Mickey Bernabe (13), Shane Bellera (10), and Jabes Jude Abella (10). Ricaldoni led 27-8 in the opening canto behind Jano Clavel who finished with 22 points and Jhon Albay's 14.
Ricaldoni failed to sustain as Braga went ahead at half, 39-34 and closing the third at 64-39.
Paolo Avecilla hit 12 and James Ryan Villanueva added 11 for Monchiero and spoiled Aldrich Apuang's 17 markers for Rinaldi who were outplayed from start 16-6, at half 26-15 and at third 44-28 up to the final count.
Two-time champion Ziggiotti showed signs to get back the title as Richard Lacson scattered 16 points, JB Baylosis collected 15 and Shane Jalandra chipped in 10 against Marko Monge's 14 and Jeremy Decena's 10 of Bragion.
From a close opening canto lead of 15-13, Ziggiotti drove like a Masserratti with 39-16, 57-26 quarter scores to finish without a sweat.
Next games are set on Saturday starting 1 p.m. for the eight-team DBAAC cagefest. (HGD)
