Lapu Lapu-Siquijor VisMin tilt postponed due to technical difficulties

ALCANTARA — The game between ARQ Builders-Lapu Lapu City and Siquijor in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup has been postponed because of a power interruption at the Civic Center here in Cebu, Wednesday afternoon.

ARQ was leading 27-13 at halftime of the game when the power completely went out.

“We had a power interruption here in Alcantara. Though we have a generator, it could not sustain our internet, which has forced us to postpone the game,” said Chief Operating Officer Rocky Chan.

The league needs a stable internet connection for the live streaming of the games and for uploading game stats.

Chan also talked to both Lapu-Lapu Heroes head coach Francis Auquico, Mystics head coach Joel Palapal, and their respective team owners about this.

They then agreed to restart the game on the final day of the elimination round.

The game had already stopped once after the power went out halfway through the second period

ARQ-Lapu-Lapu, which was gunning for their third win in a row, got off to a fast start. It even led, 23-5, after the first 10 minutes of action. However, the Mystics kept the game from getting out of hand by holding the Heroes to just four points in the second period.

League officials added that the games pitting Tubigon Bohol and KCS Computer Specialist-Mandaue, and Dumaguete and MJAS Zenith-Talisay will take place once electricity stabilizes.
