Earvin Mendoza, Batangas-EAC survive Chauca’s fiery finish for 2nd win

The Batangas-EAC Generals stayed in the running for the 2019 PBA D-League playoffs, escaping the Family Mart-Enderun Titans, 91-90, Monday afternoon at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

Chris dela Peña scored the game-winning layup with 13.8 ticks left, as the Generals thwarted Valandre Chauca’s alley-oop pass to Joseph Kouakou late to come away with the victory. Dela Peña finished with 12 points and three rebounds.

Batangas-EAC snapped their four-game losing skid to improve to 2-5 in the Aspirants Group.

“Last time, I told them that we should learn how to win,” said coach Oliver Bunyi, looking back on the Generals’ 122-119 double-overtime loss to AMA Online Education last week. “This game, the effort was there and I’m very proud of them na kahit paano yung instructions, nasunod naman.”

Earvin Mendoza topscored for Batangas-EAC with 18 points, four rebounds, and two assists. Marwin Taywan chipped in 14 points, five assists, and four boards, while Allan Martin got 10.

It was a tough defeat for the winless Family Mart-Enderun, since they suffered their sixth defeat in as many outings.

The Titans were also eliminated from playoff contention, sending Chauca’s 30-point performance down the drain.

The Scores:

Batangas-EAC 91 — E. Mendoza 18, Taywan 14, Dela Pena 12, Martin 10, Tampoc 9, De Joya 6, Carlos 5, J. Mendoza 5, Gonzales 4, Corilla 3, Neri 2, De Guzman 2, Fuentes 1, Boffa 0.

FamilyMart-Enderun 90 — Chauca 30, Kouakou 20, Gotladera 10, Hayes 9, Vidal 7, Escoto 5, Tancioco 3, Dela Cruz 3, Dungan 2, Nunez 1, Gatdula 0.
