MANILA, Philippines – NorthPort rocks and rolls in Bacolor without its regular coaching staff.
Taking advantage of its coaches’ situation as a rallying point, Batang Pier stumbled upon Terrafirma, 104-84, for consecutive wins at the PBA Philippine Cup Saturday in Bacolor, Pampanga.
The lit Batang Pier unleashed a searing windup in the second quarter to lay the foundation for the 20-point round that came from Blackwater two days ago after her 98-73 deficiency.
The Batang Pier increased his overall record to 3-3 and moved up to 7th place overall, with mentor Pido Jarencio and his assistants still recovering from the virus in Manila.
“It’s still the system of coach Pido, Wala Namang Pagbabago “said team manager and interim trainer Bonnie Tan. “We only dedicate the games to our coaches in Manila, who will recover and will be here soon.
Everyone works hard, the boys don’t want to give up Basta Basta. Iyun talaga when it comes to pushing. “
” Whenever your coaches recover from this, we go out to fight hard and win the games for them, “said soaring rookie Jamie Malonzo who lost 14 points in that conquest, fed by five highlight reel dunks.
NorthPort, who just returned from a 41-day layoff this week, closes with a game against NLEX tonight at Don Honorio Ventura State U Gym soon had a busy comeback.
Garvo Lanete took the top scorer at 18 while Robert Bolick scored 15 points, six rebounds and eight assists for the winners.
NorthPort did it as Greg’s starting center Slaughter left the game after a disqualifying foul against Roosevelt Adams in the second period, finishing with two markers and three boards.
Adams and Aldrech Ramos shared 14 goals for the Dyip (3-6), who are now after three great victories when restarting P ampanga waiting for two games.
NorthPort 104 – Lanete 18, Bolick 15, Malonzo 14, Onwvergleich 10, Elorde 9, Taha 8, Faudo 6, Rike 6, Ferrer 5, Anthony 4, Subido 3, Balanza 2, Gray 2, Slaughter 2, Dolliguez 0.
