Gilas Cup Season 5 (5’10) – An entertaining game to say the least, as the saying goes do not give up until the final buzzer sounds. From the tip off Drunkards were determined to put away Pcity early. Recognizing their manpower advantage, they put the pressure on Pcity and took a 37 – 26 advantage in the first half. Led by Lester Moises’ game high 15 pts and Aljohn Baltazar’s 12 pts they kept Pcity at bay most of the game.
In the second half, with their hustle and pressure defense, Pcity managed to claw their way back slowly but surely. Malbert Reyes double double game (12 pts & 13 rebs) and Erwin Pascual’s 18 bench points were key as they managed to tie the game late into the ball game.
And on one crucial play Gilbert Sales knocked on a non-contested 3 pts shot and Pcity never looked back. Pcity 64 – Drunkards 61.
