Dominick Fajardo-powered Bulacan DF routs Paranaque for fifth NBL win


Bulacan DF dominated from start to finish and dumped Paranaque, 100-81, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga, Saturday.

Dominick Fajardo led the onslaught for the Republicans as he netted 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the field, eight rebounds, four assists, and three steals.2021-Chooks-NBL-Bulacan-vs-Paranaque-Ryan-Operio-scaled Dominick Fajardo-powered Bulacan DF routs Paranaque for fifth NBL win Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

The bench duo of Jerick Sumampong and Ryan Operio both finished inside double figures with 13 and 12 points, respectively.

Bulacan zoomed to a 29-19 first quarter lead and never looked back to cruise to the wire-to-wire victory.

Needing more breathing space in the fourth period up by 10, the Republicans outscored their rivals 32-23, to improve their win-loss record to 5-1.

Floor general Chris Necio did everything for Bulacan, finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, and six assists.

The Republicans made 45 percent of their shots, going 41-of-90 from the field, while the Aces only managed 29 percent, including 3-of-27 from rainbow country.2021-Chooks-NBL-Bulacan-vs-Paranaque-Dwight-Saguiguit-scaled Dominick Fajardo-powered Bulacan DF routs Paranaque for fifth NBL win Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

Dwight Saguiguit led the 1-2 Paranaque with 15 points but had a poor 3-of-13 clip, while Paolo Castro chipped in 13.

Jielo Razon produced 12 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and four steals against five turnovers, while Jayboy Solis had 10 points, nine rebounds, six assists, and three steals. The two combined for a measly 6-of-33 clip from the field, good for just 18.1 percent.

Bulacan looks to deal Quezon its first loss of the tournament tomorrow at 1:15 pm, while the Aces aim for a return trip to the win column when they battle Pampanga at 6 pm.
