Metro League: Bacoor survives Caloocan endgame surge


by Ernest Hernandez

Bacoor held off Caloocan’s late run to score a 79-76 win in the Metro League Reinforced Conference at the Niagara Industrial Equipment Corporation Gym in Caloocan on Saturday night.

In the battle between teams at the top of their respective divisions, the Strike seemed well on their way of a blowout after opening a 79-69 lead with 2:08 to play.

But the Supremos went on a 7-0 run to cut the lead down to three.

They even had a chance to send the game to overtime, but Joseph Brutas’ three-point attempt just rimmed out as time expired.

Prince Orizu scored 20 points, hauled down six rebounds, issued one assist, and a block for Bacoor, which stayed unbeaten at 4-0.

Mark Montuano added 19 points and five rebounds.

Bacoor 79 — Orizu 20, Montuano 19, Castro 10, Doligon 9, Aquino 5, Descamento 5, Malabag 5, Acuna 4, Pangilinan 2, Maligon 0, Mirandao 0, Ochea 0

Caloocan 76 — Brutas 26, Darang 18, Niang 11, Bauzon 5, De Mesa 5, Enriquez 5, Sombero 4, Flores 2, Tay 0

Quarterscores: 19-20, 40-41, 54-54 79-76
