Kapatagan drops Zambo Sibugay from high, gains share of second in VisMin

PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR—BYB Kapatagan outlasted Zamboanga Sibugay Anak Mindanao, 67-61, in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Challenge, Saturday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

A layup by Jeff Acain put the Anak Mindanao Warriors within five. Then Jun Daanoy retaliated with a big trey on the other end to re-establish an eight-point lead, 67-59.

In the ensuing play, Zamboanga Sibugay’s Shaq Imperial went coast-to-coast to inch to a two-possession game, 61-67.

Huge Kapatagan defensive stops, though, prevented the Anak Mindanao Warriors from coming back down the stretch. They missed all their remaining shots.

“Nakita nila ako parang sumigla ‘yung mga player. Puso na lang ang labanan eh, kasi gusto talaga nilang makabawi,” said Buffalos head coach Jaime Rivera, who missed their 72-90 loss against Roxas last Thursday due to personal reasons.

Daanoy tallied 11 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter. He also had six rebounds and two steals for Kapatagan.

Edrian Lao added 10 points and six rebounds. Meanwhile, KD Ariar and homegrown Joel Sollano combined for 16 points and nine assists.

The Buffalos improved to 5-3, tied with Roxas for second while pulling the Warriors below them at 5-4.

Monbert Arong was the lone Zamboanga Sibugay player to breach double digits with 11 points, but he committed six turnovers.

The Warriors will face Roxas tomorrow at 4:00 PM. Meanwhile, the Buffalos will battle MFT Iligan on Monday.

The Scores:

Kapatagan 67 – Daanoy 24, Lao 10, Ariar 9, Sollano 7, Puerto 6, Bonganciso 4, Manalo 3, Bersabal 2, Delfinado 2, Kwong 0, Saga 0.
