Lastimosa, Wilson lead Clarin escape of Roxas to take early VisMin lead


IPIL, ZAMBOANGA SIBUGAY — Carlo Lastimosa and John Wilson put on a show while Clarin trumped Petra Cement-Roxas, 72-66, in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup at the Provincial Gymnasium here, Sunday. 

Lastimosa dropped 22 points on an 8-of-15 clip. Wilson tallied 15 markers, four dimes, four steals, and three rebounds to improve their win-loss slate to 2-0 and take the early lead.

Down 52-63 with 3:23 left in the game, Roxas climbed all the way back to within three with 33.5 ticks left after a 12-4 run, 64-67.

In the ensuing play though, Clarin’s Lastimosa went all the way to the hoop for the easy basket. He made it a two-possession game, 69-64, with 27.4 seconds remaining.

The Vanguards opened the fourth quarter with five unanswered points to trim their deficit to just two. But Sto. Niño retaliated with a 12-3 blitz to restore order, 63-52.

“Focused lang kami hanggang matapos ‘yung laro. Finish strong lang hanggang dulo kahit nakahabol ‘yung Roxas,” said Sto. Niño coach Miguel Borilla Jr.

Big man Joseph Eriobu also delivered for Clarin with 14 points and seven rebounds.

Jhong Bondoc came through with 15 markers and eight boards. Meanwhile, Lester Reyes added a double-double of 13 points and 10 caroms.

The Vanguards then fell to 0-2 to be at the bottom with Iligan.

Vanguard Jordan Intic hit the showers early after incurring a flagrant foul penalty 2 at the 3:24 mark of the third canto.

Both Roxas and Clarin will next play opening day victors Basilan on Tuesday and Friday, respectively.
