THEY failed to make it to the championship round. But the Lady Skyhawks under coach Noel Miel from Indahag National High School and the Pilgrim Christian College (PCC) Lady Voyagers with coach Dong Jaramillo ended the fourth season of the Cagayan de Oro City (CDOC) Inter-Public basketball tournament with a bang.

The Lady Skyhawks and the Lady Voyagers fought tooth and nail in a pulsating match in Nazareth gym over the weekend, that was decided historic triple overtime in favor of the Indahag cagebelles, 55-52.

“I think, first time pa nahitabo ang triple overtime, dili lang sa among liga apan sa uban pud tingali. Battle for third place lang pero dili na malimtan,” said tournament director Raul Fuentes.

(I think it is the first time to happen, the tripe overtime, not only in our league but also in others. It’s only a battle for third place but really remarkable.)

“Hat off to Indahag and Pilgrim, they both deserve the accolade,” added games statistician Bethel Cueva.

After the regulation period ended at 39-all, Indahag’s explosive tandem of Ivy Yañez and Sharika Ashanti Olano carried the Skyhawks in the extra minutes with the help of Christine Pallorina and Jazzie Diacor to counter the equally-productive efforts of Pilgrim’s troika of Shancyl Tubo, Thea Longgos and Celrish Marie Tabasan.

Yañez and Olano paced Indahag with 18 and 13 points, respectively. While Pilgrim got 16, 14 and 10 markers each from Tubo, Longgos and Solis.

In the opener, the East City Central School of coach Roy Estenzo pummeled Kauswagan Central School of coach Maria Cecilia Labata, 47-29 behind the 16 and 10 points each from Randy Along and Dustin Domingo.

The Kauswagan boys got ten markers apiece from Chris July Saturno and Daniel Dave Arañas in losing the elementary’s third place honor.

Both the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School (MOGCHS) Cavaliers of coach Jayson Cagmat and the City High (CDO-NHS) Tigers of coach Bismark Labadan also won the third place in secondary boys’ 15-under and 17-under categories in lopsided manner.

The Cavaliers manhandled City High, 54-31 with James Nalugon leading the onslaught with his 15 points. Stunned, the City High Tigers’ 17-under squad exacted revenge at the expense of Tablon National High School, 76-61 with Mark Ervin Tagocon erupting for 18 points, the pair of Emmanuel Ramirez and Russel Rosete delivering 16 markers each and Lord John Guiao and Godwin Oliver Herrera adding 10 and 8 points, respectively.

Tablon NHS of coach Bernie Laraga drew double-digit numbers all from Jonas Malazarte (13), Karlo Belmis (12), Michael Tan (12) and Ivan Dumangcas (10) in a losing cause.
