Tigers survive Packers
Hoyas, Arsenals win
By Francis Malicdem
Tigers Allen Samson goes for the undergoal stab as Packers' Jun Valdez look on
Team Tigers survived the last minute rally of Team Packers to escape a 66-62 win in the continuation of the 9th PinoyExchange.com Basketball League at the RFM Gym Saturday night.
Jeffrey Santiago scored the key basket with 1 minute remaining to give the Tigers some breathing space while Gian Canilao blocked the potential game tying three by Packers' guard Jayson Dela Cruz then added a free throw to give the Tigers the much needed win after suffering a setback two weeks ago.
It was a tight game althrough out as the Tigers and Packers tried to outscore each other
Brothers Ed and Arsenio Galanida go for the rebound
But the Tigers appreared to gain the upper hand as Dexter Ong and Stewart Samson scored key baskets which gave their team 10 points lead at halftime.
The Packers then cut the deficit down to four at the end of the 3rd period with timely hits by Dela Cruz, Glenn Javier and Chody Felix
The Tigers then regained their strength in the fourth period as they built a 12 point lead through the efforts of Stewart Samson and Dexter Ong.
But like what they have been doing in the past season, the Packers refused to give up and with Tristan Taboac and Jun Valdez leading the Packers, the Season 6 champs inched closer and was able to cut the lead to just 3 points at 63-60
But the Tigers have other things in mind.
Santiago eluded three defenders and scored a basket to bring back the lead to five
After a Taboac basket, the Packers got the ball back and had the opportunity to tie the lead but Canilao foiled it as he was able to chase and block the shot of Dela Cruz.
It was the fifth victory of the Tigers in six outings while the Packers saw their 3 game winning streak snapped and fell to their fourth defeat in 7 games.
winning their first game in three years remain elusive for Team Lions as they again went home disappointed after Team Arsenals tore them apart 83-67
Arsenals' dynamic duo Robinson Abalos and RV Vicencio drained one basket after another to help their team pull away as early as the 2nd period.
Baby James is back. Ian Torres finds himself back in the league but this time with a different team
The entry of guard Ian Torres and Malbert Reyes didnt have much effect
either as the Lions fall to their 26 straight defeat and the 6th this season.
The combination of Vicencio and Abalos proved to be a tough nut to crack for the Lions as the two players combined for 34 points while Jojo Escanlar was a beast on the boards as he collected a league season high 18 including 11 on the offensive side.
The win pushed the Arsenals in the Top 4 in the team standings with a crucial game against the Packers up ahead next Saturday.
Hoyas continued on their winning ways despite the loss of center Waf Fabie as they defeated the Team Lynx 82-73.
Joby Primicias was at his usual self scoring 26 points but this time he got help from his teammates as rookie Arsenio Galanida contributed the same number of points to help the Hoyas get their fifth win in 6 games.
Lions' Malbert Reyes finds it hard to see daylight in Arsenals' defense
The Hoyas led by as much as 28 points as the Lynx defense were not in their usual self in the first 3 periods
But as usual, the Lynx always find the strength in the final quarter as they made the run to cut the lead to just eight points with 1 minute remaining.
Galanida then crushed any comeback hopes of the Lynx with a layup while the new team turned the ball over to give the game to the Hoyas.

The Pandas found the Lions a difficult oponent to deal with as the Lions kept the game close with the hot hands of Jc Yumul who scored a will despite the defense thrown to him by Orangemen.
Pandas however countered the offense of Yumul with the MJ Macapugay and Albert Chua tandem as both helped the Pandas regain the upperhand in the 2nd and 3rd period.

ARSENALS OUTLAST PACKERS IN OT
Pandas, Hoyas, Spartans on a roll
Team Arsenals survived the 2nd half onslaught of Team Packers to hack out a hard-earned 96-90 win in overtime in the continuation of the PEXBALL Season 9 Year 11 eliminations at the newly refurbished Sta Cruz Sports Complex in Makati City.
Arvie Vicencio and Arvie Caancan starred for the Arsenals as they scored key baskets in the extra session to help their team win their 4th game in 7 games
It was a game of spurts as the Arsenals waxed hot in the first half erecting a huge 15 point lead as Robinson Abalos played like a man possessed scoring 15 markers at halftime
But as always, the Packers showed their never say die attitude and with Jorell Chan and Mike Brua taking charge, the Season 6 champions crawled their way back in the second half and completed their comeback by leading after the 3rd period at 63-61.
From there, it was a nip and tuck affair as both teams refused to allow their each other to break away.
Late in the regulation, the Packers appeared to have the upperhand as the Arsenals had several players in foul trouble including Abalos who fouled out with less than 2 minutes remaining
Leading 79-74 after two free throws by Junray Felix, the Arsenals made a comeback with 1:52 left starting with a basket by Jojo Escanlar that cut the lead to just 3.
After a split by Tristan Taboac with 1:26 in the clock, Vicencio raced towards their basket for a quick two to cut the deficit to just two points at 80-78.
The Arsenals then had a chance to tie the game as they got the ball back after a miss by the Packers but Vicencio missed his two free throws.
However, Season 4 MVP Paolo Escober saved the day for the Arsenals as he tied the game with his two free throws with 18.8 seconds left.
The Packers had a chance to win the game outright but ageless warrior Mike Rivera missed his jumper as time expired in the regulation.
In overtime, the two teams exchanged baskets before the Packers got the upperhand at 89-86 after a basket by Rivera with 3 minutes remaining
The Packers then got the ball back and appreared ready to break away from the Arsenals
But Escober then tapped the ball away from the Packers' inbound pass and Caancan grabbed the ball and raced to their basket.
Caancan was then fouled by Packers' Nat Balanza but as he was fouled he flipped the ball which went in triggering a massive celebration not only from the Arsenals' bench but also from the audience.
Caancan missed the freebie but the Packers missed on the next play.
Vicencio then took advantage of the situation and raced to their basket for an easy layup, giving the Arsenals a 90-89 lead with 2 minutes left
Rivera tied the count with a split from the line but Escober came through with a basket to push the White team up by 2 at 92-90 with 1:28 left.
Packers then turned the ball over and the Arsenals melted some precious seconds in the game clock before Vicencio hit a dagger three over the outstretched arms of Balanza with 19 seconds left, securing the win for the Arsenals
Spartans remain undefeated
Team Spartans continued on their amazing winning streak after defeating Team Titans 78-43.
The Spartans used a big third quarter run led by Omar Ilagan to remain undefeated after 7 games this season.
The defending champions showed their strentgh in defense as they limited the Titans to possibly a league low of just 13 points in the 2nd half turning a close 33-30 lead to a huge 20 point lead at the end of the third canto.
6 on 6
in the nightcap, the Team Hoyas won the battle of 6 players after they defeated Team Blupers 81-63.
Joby Primicias and rookie Arsenio Galanida burned the hoops as they combined for 57 points to help the Hoyas notched their 7th win in 8 outings
The Blupers started strong leading 12-0 but faded immediately after Galanida scored consecutive baskets to help the Hoyas inch closer.
Eventually the Hoyas broke the game wide open in the 2nd period as Primicias scored at will leaving the Blupers' defense behind.
Blupers tried to stage a comeback in the third period led by Bridson Castronuevo but the Hoyas quickly answered back pushing the Season 4 champions to their 5th consecutive defeat after winning its first 2 games.
Pandas get their 1st back to back wins this season
In the first game, the Pandas registered its first back to back wins after defeating Team Lynx 88-73 at the Acropolis Gym in Mandaluyong.
The Pandas used a big second quarter run led by rookies MJ Macapugay and Christian SAngalang to take a huge 15 point lead at halftime
The Pandas carried on their onslaught in the third, this time by Albert chua who was splendid on both side of the court.
The Lynx tried to rally in the 4th and led by Brian Kelly Chua and Hardy Espineda, the new team was able to cut the deficit to just 9 points at 84-73 with 3 minutes remaining.
However, the PAndas proved to be steady in the clutch as they nailed key baskets to stop the rally of the Lynx

HERE COMES THE PANDAS!
Pandas get their 3rd straight victory
Spartans, Tigers, Arsenals win
Team Pandas flirted with disaster before dispatching the pesky Team Blupers 83-77 to keep their Top 4 hopes alive in the continuation the Season 9 Year 11 of PEXBALL at the Sta. Cruz Sports Complex Saturday night.
The Pandas leaned on the clutch plays from Paul Dungao and Erik Fuertes to notch their 3rd consective win and their fourth overall in eight games.
Holding a precarious 2 point lead at 62-60 with 8:51 left in the fourth period, the Pandas unleased a 13-4 run with Fuertes and Dungao combining for 9 points to help their team pull away
The game was close in the beginning with both teams having a hard time to buy a basket in the first period however in the second period, the Pandas began to gain confidence with their shots as they built a 44-27 lead midway in the said period.
But the Blupers came back strong in the 3rd canto and led by Bridson Castronuevo and JM Fajardo, the blue team was able to cut the lead to just three at 60-57 before the quarter ended much to the dismay of Pandas' team lead JP Abcede who was given a warning by the referees for arguing a call.
But the Pandas showed their strength in the fourth to withstand the onslaught of the Blupers
Arsenals back on track
the race for the #4 spot got interesting as Team Arsenals held off the Team Lynx 82-77 in the 2nd game of the day.
Robinson Abalos waxed hot in the final canto carrying the load for the Arsenals who played without key men RV Vicencio and Pao Escober.
Abalos finished with a gamehigh 32 points including 15 in the payoff period that helped the Arsenals break free from a 54-all at the end of the 3rd period.
The loss was a heartbreaking one for the Lynx who appeared to have the game under control after posting a 47-39 lead in the third period courtesy of rookie Aldrin Gregorio and Hardy Espineda
But the Arsenals turned the tables around as Ken Leander and Rony Puno joined forces to push last season's bridesmaid back in the game.
In the opener, Team Spartans roared to their 8th straight win this season as they defeated the luckless Team Lions 60-54 at the Ronac Art Center in San Juan.
The Spartans used a big second quarter run to frustrate the Lions who showed up with star player Eric Escalona.
Escalona who is on a week vacation, gave the Lions some hope as he kept the game close for his team in the opening period.
However, teamwork and familiarity with each other was the key for the Spartans who were led by Jenken Quiroga with 11 markers followed by Norman Buentipo and Allan Dator with 10 points each.
The Lions tried to stage a comeback in the fourth period but like its previous games, they fell short again thus they fell to other 8th defeat this season.
In the night cap, the Team Tigers survived the hard fighting Team Titans to register a 71-61 win
stewart Samson and rookie Christian Manalang combined for 42 points to help their team get their 7th win in 8 games.
The Tigers started the game hot as they scored 24 points compared to the 10 of the Titans in the first period but last season's MVP Mike Soliven made his presence felt in the 2nd canto, scoring 11 points to help his team cut the deficit to just 1 point at 34-33
But the Tigers showed their poise as regained control of the game in the second half, frustrating the Titans with their defense.
