Published

Bacoor banked on its lockdown defense to zap Pasay, 63-41, in the U17 Division of the Metro League at the Hagonoy Sports Complex in Taguig on Thursday.

Despite offensive struggles of its own, Bacoor made up for it on the defensive end, limiting Pasay to just 16 points in the first half.
