Agdao District snatches 1st win at last

AGDAO District redeemed itself after securing a 79-67 victory over Buhangin District in the resumption of the Duterte Basketball League 2016 Inter-Political District-Barangay Officials held at the Almendras Gym Davao Recreation Center Thursday, September 22.

The Agdao dribblers, who lost two games in a row against Talomo and Calinan Districts, got their first taste of victory to enter the winning column with a 1-2 win-loss card. Buhangin dropped to 1-2.

Roel "Dodong" Laurel poured in 24 points to lead scoring for Agdao as veteran coach Flordelito "Dodong" Cagampang added 20.

Agdao team captain Roger Galido, in phone interview with SunStar Davao, said they were able to adjust and improve their endurance having played successive games the past days.

Galido said the cagefest is a great venue for them to indulge in physical activities at the same time they could socialize with fellow barangay officials to talk with the village's improvement.

Galido added that he organized a basketball league for the 250 drug-related surrenderees in Agdao as part of their rehabilitation program.

The tournament, sanctioned by Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas and sponsored by the City Government of Davao through the Sports Development Division of the City Mayor's Office (SDD-CMO), resumes at 9 a.m. Friday. (ABM)
