Gemma Miranda takes charge as Ever Bilena rules Chooks 3×3 MelMac Cup leg 2

Ever Bilena repeated over Blackwater in the finale of the Women’s Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 MelMac Cup leg two, presented by Gold’s Gym and Coca-Cola, taking a 21-13 (9:55) triumph, on Saturday.

Janine Pontejos provided an early spark in the game, scoring three straight points to break and early 2-2 deadlock and never look back.

The trio of Afril Bernardino, Gemma Miranda, and Janine Pontejos ran roughshod on Blackwater, helping build an 18-12 lead cushion with 2:16 left. Miranda ended Blackwater’s misery with a jumper with 4.9 seconds to go.

Bernardino led Ever Bilena — who took home P20,000 in the six-team tourney — with eight points. Miranda added seven markers.

“Nagpapasalamat kami because nanalo kami ng second straight leg namin,” said Miranda. “Thankful rin kami sa Chooks 3×3 dahil nabibigyan ng national exposure ang women’s basketball.”

Ria Nabalan was the topscorer for Blackwater with six points.

Meanwhile, David Carlos once again ruled the Chooks-to-Go Harissa Roast Slam Dunk competition.

The third leg of the MelMac Cup takes place on Wednesday, October 16 still at Gold’s Gym Sheridan in Mandaluyong City.
