Rommel de Guzman and Richard took turns on behalf of SHMZ’s attack. Both players scattered their 16 points on vast array of offensive move.
In the third quarter, Runners started to gain ground and managed to claw their way back into the ballgame with a big 18-10 run going into the fourth quarter.
Down by 7 points going into the payoff period, Runners’ Marvin Gomez showed why he is the unstoppable force in the league. Gomez’s 31 pts and 13 reb were huge and kept SHMZ scrapping for answers.
Late in the game free throws were so important that the Runners capitalized on it and literally run away with the come from behind win. Rubnners 55 – SHMZ Dragons 51.
