Joco Tayongtong, QC deal Makati first loss, Yee tows Davao Occidental to fourth win

Joco Tayongtong took over late to lift hosts Quezon City Capitals to a huge 91-85 over the erstwhile-unbeaten Makati Super Crunch, Tuesday evening at the Blue Eagle Gym.

Down by three with 1:28 left, the ex-EAC General stepped up, knocking down a triple to knot things up. He then pickpocketed Rudy Lingganay that led to the go-ahead basket afterward.

Clark Derige followed it up with a breakaway lay-up while insurance free throws by Ramon Mabayo and Tayongtong completed the upset and lift the Capitals to a 4-2 slate.

Tayongtong ended up tallying 20 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals, and two blocks.

Dahrrel Canguian continued his superb play, finishing with 20 points and eight assists as QC missed the services of Aaron Black for the second straight game due to duties with Mighty Sports-Go for Gold Philippines.

Jeckster Apinan’s 21-point, 15-rebound outing went for naught. Juneric Baloria and Joshua Torralba added 17 and 16 markers, respectively, for Makati.

Earlier in the day, the Davao Occidental Tigers scored another rout, slamming the struggling Rizal Crusaders, 86-55, to go to 4-1 in the Southern Division of the 2019-20 MPBL Lakan Cup.

Mark Yee tallied his 23rd MPBL double-double, finishing with 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Tigers led by as much as 33 points in the contest.

Billy Robles added 15 points, four rebounds, and four steals.

Achie Inigo was the sole player to score in double-digits for the 1-3 Rizal with 10 points.

The first game of the triple-header saw the Muntinlupa Cagers pick up their second win of the young season, scoring an 87-78 win over the Paranaque Patriots.
