Lapasan, Camaman-an dribblers to Q-round-A A +A
Thursday, May 17, 2012
OPEN division leaders barangays Lapasan and Camaman-an kept their unblemished winning record unscathed as they both advanced early into the quarterfinal rounds of the ongoing 1st Mayor Vicente Emano Cup Inter-Barangay Summer Basketball Tournament held at the Bulua gym here.
Both toting a perfect 3-0 win-loss card, Camaman-an topped the Bracket 2 in the open division after posting convincing victories over Consolacion, Puerto and Barangay 13. While Lapasan moved into the next round when it ruled Bracket 3 that comprised teams from Barangays 10, 34 and 22.
Hard court hostilities are expected to heat up as teams from other four brackets will slug it out to gain top spot and earn the remaining four slots in the quarterfinal rounds.
Aside from the open division, teams in the 18 years old and below, and 14 years old and below divisions are also banging-up with each other to reach the next round of the tournament initiated by Congressman Bambi Emano and supported by the City Sports Development Program.
A total of P115,000 in cash prizes await the winners of the city-wide, free registration tournament, which opened on April 22 and will wrap up on June 9 next month. (PR)
