The Go for Gold-CSB Scratchers clinched a seat in the 2019 PBA D-League playoffs, dismantling McDavid, 119-101, Tuesday at JCSGO Gym in Cubao.

Clement Leutcheu and Edward Dixon teamed up in the Scratchers’ early spurt as they took a quick 37-21 advantage.

The lead swelled to as much as 31 as McDavid had no answers to Go for Gold-CSB’s onslaught.

“We’re happy we made it to the quarterfinals,” said coach Charles Tiu. “That’s one of our goals this conference because it’s a very stacked conference.”

Leutcheu topped the balanced attack with 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, and three steals. Dixon scored 10 of his 16 points in that opening frame. Roosevelt Adams chipped in 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Justin Gutang had 12 points, six assists, and three boards.

CSB rise to 6-3 in the Aspirants Group.

Jeremiah Pangalangan, Prince Carlos, and James Pasturan all contributed 11 points apiece for the Scratchers to finish their eliminations campaign on a high.

McDavid, meanwhile, exited the tourney at 1-8 slate.

Jason Melano led the squad with 26 points and seven rebounds, as Jerwin Gaco had 20 in the defeat.
