Goldberry started the game on a 20-10 blast and never looked back as the younger Gaisano Capital slowly crumbled and yielded the game to the more experienced squad via a 26-point route.
Jeremy Huang scored the game-high 14 points and Eugene Tan added with 10, while Jermaine Carillo topped for Gaisano Capital with 10 markers.
Meanwhile, defending champions Dynamic Power barely prevailed in a hefty trade of baskets in the opening quarter before they dumped the youthful Twin Tower Gold with a 92-70 bashing.
After leading by just four, 18-14, in the opening quarter, Dynamic Power started to establish control of the game as they closed the first half carrying a 46-36 lead.
The young Twin Tower Gold was caught off-guard when the defending champions made strong moves in the final half en route to the 22-point winning margin.
Mendell Go, Troy Tan and Mark Sy combined for 44 points to lead Dynamic Power scorers, while Alexter Tecson scored the game-high 31 points, Joseph Roma added 15 and Justin Yu contributed 11 for Twin Tower Gold.
In the other games, Ed Macasling scored 17 points and Kylee Valmoria added 13 as Japfa drubbed the Ryan Lauro-led A Team, 74-53.
The Cebu Landmasters held RDAK to just five points in the second quarter en route to a 58-41 win.
