Lao, Daanoy connive vs Iligan as Kapatagan rolls to win no. 6 in VisMin


PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — BYB Kapatagan rolled past MFT Iligan, 87-69, in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Challenge, Monday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here.

After keeping pace for the first three periods, the Archangels ran out of gas in the fourth while the Buffalos unleashed a fourth-quarter bomb that Iligan could not come back from.

JR Saga kickstarted a game-deciding 16-4 surge for Kapatagan to blow the game wide open, 77-57, with 5:41 to go.

“Umpisa pa lang sinabi ko na sa kanila na huwag tayo maging complacent. Huwag ninyong tignan ‘yung standing kasi kayang kaya nila tayo talunin,” said Buffalos head coach Jaime Rivera.

Kapatagan is now tied with Globalport-MisOr for the top spot at 6-3 and currently has the tiebreaker after winning their first matchup.

Edrian Lao registered a monster performance with 19 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks, while Jonel Bonganciso had 10 points and eight rebounds.

Jun Daanoy filled the stat sheet with nine points, eight rebounds, three blocks, and two steals.

Playing assistant coach Markee Bautista led Iligan with 19 points and seven rebounds, while Herrald Benedictos got 17 points.

Despite going scoreless, Dave Tagolimot had an unusual double-double with 11 rebounds and 10 assists as the Archangels fell to their third straight defeat, going down to 2-8 for the last place.

Both squads play anew tomorrow. Iligan will open the day against Roxas at 4 pm followed by Kapatagan-Basilan at 6:30 pm.
