PROLIFIC shooter Christopher “Bong” Go hit twelve triples to lead the City Mayor’s Office past Philippine Navy, 99-94, and grab its seventh straight win in the ongoing Davao Summer Sports for Peace Festival AFP-PNP Basketball Tournament on Wednesday at the Almendras Gym Davao City Recreation Center.

Go finished the game with tournament-high 45 points in a splendid performance highlighted with his great sharp-shooting prowess that proved to be a lethal force for the Mayor’s men.

The sweet-shooting executive assistant of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte poured in 21 baskets in the pivotal second period as the Mayor’s men rallied from a five-point deficit all the way to a 54-43 lead at the break.

Bigman Weng Farochillen and Roy Bangkas chipped in 13 and 10 points, respectively, for CMO that ballooned its gap to 16, 80-64, entering the pay off period.

The Navymen fought hard in the last canto, pulling off a rally behind Ayon-ayon and De Luna, to cut the deficit to a single digit less than five minutes to go.

But the Mayor’s men handled the Navymen’s pesky fightback with great poise, answering back with critical baskets and defensive plays.

Ayon-ayon paced the winless Navy with 31 points. De Luna had 25.

CMO held on to a solo second spot in the team standings with a 7-1 card behind 4-0 Bureau of Fire Protection. The Davao City Police Office was at third with a 4-1 mark.

Meanwhile, Police Regional Office-11 snapped a two-game skid with a 100-65 win against Philippine Air Force.

Gaffud, Blanco and Moral combined for 43 points for PRO that improved to 3-2 win-loss card.

Chok Gacayan had 31 for PAF that remained winless in five outings.

The 10th Infantry Agila Division defeated Regional Public Safety Batallion, 90-77, to keep its hopes alive for the next round. The win improved 10th ID’s record to 3-3 while RPSB dropped to 2-5. (Rico Biliran)
