-A A +A

BRYAN Cabanes hit just one of his two freethrows in the final seconds of play. But it was enough a breather to give Team Tigbas a thrilling 82-81 win over Team Krissan in the championship game of Club 92 held recently at the Macasandig gym here.

This, as the Ulysiss Romulo-led Team C decisioned the ‘Con-Air’ Gomez-powered Team A, 88-61 in their best-of-3 series to claim the LTO basketball crown last Wednesday over at brgy. 24’s covered court.

LTO ballclub president Zaldy Palasan presided over the awards rites that followed shortly later.

With team-playing manager Krissan Villalba having Orobankers MVP Stephen Go and some STI cagers in his roster, Team Krissan looked like heading to complete a back-to-back championship in Club 92 this season.

“Grabe sab kaayong referee, gitawagan pa gyod,” rued Villalba, who could hardly take the referee’s call that sent Cabanes to the freethrow line with barely 3 seconds left.

Cabanes fished a foul from Calang while trying to break a 81-all deadlock on a desperate drive.

“Pero sakto nga tawag `to sa ref. Nisangit gyod si Calang sa akong shooting arm,” later said Cabanes.

That call and Cabanes’ “half moon” effort from the line made Jay Cortez as an eight- time champion in the league and a perfect Christmas gift for the ageless Pabillore.

“After our semis win against FS Car Care Display, gi approach gyod dayon kong Anton. Hungry gyod siya nga maka champion utro sa Club 92,” said Cortes, who also credited Lee Michael Paayas, Raffy James Cabanes, Entoy Cabanes, Gelo Rodriguez, Trigosa, Anaya, Molok, Sagun, Kaking and Ibrahim for the victory.
