With momentum clearly on their side, Lite Shipping kept things going and outscored Sarhento in the second canto, 23-10, to lead by 21, 47-26, at halftime.

“We had a common goal from the start, all were committed and were successful. With God’s grace and guidance, we became champions,” Macasling, who was aided by assistant coach Roldan Redemio, added. Also consulting for the team were Bong Pineda and Wendell Go.
