-A A +A

Thursday, May 22, 2014


THIRTY-SEVEN teams aspire, now there are only 16 left with fire. Of this number only a dozen will advance to the next round making the 8th Monico Cup 21 Under tournament at BAYS Center more interesting, sans the protests.

Assured of barging into the next phase are Barangay 18 and Handumanan in Bracket A with identical 3-0 record. Barangays 16 and 24 hold the same slate in Bracket B, but Barangay 23 still shadows both at 3-1.

Three is a crowd in Bracket C with Estefania holding a 3-1 card and Singcang with 2-1. Maui Huelar's Barangay 35, however, is favored to take the first spot having beaten both powerful squads at 2-0.
