The Valencia City Bukidnon-San Sebastian Golden Harvest remained in the hunt for the Foundation Group top spot, dismantling CD14 Designs-Trinity, 105-82, Thursday in the 2019 PBA D-League at Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Emmanuel Bonleon stepped up for the Golden Harvest, uncorking 20 of his 23 points in the first half as his side took the 36-23 lead at the end of the first period.
Allyn Bulanadi was his lethal self with a team-high 28 points, alongside six rebounds, three steals, and two assists. Meanwhile, JM Calma had a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds.
The trio’s efforts were more than enough for Valencia-SSCR to continue padding the lead, reaching their peak at 25, 75-50, at the midway point of the third frame.
It was the Golden Harvest’s fourth straight win and pulled them level again with CEU for the no. 1 spot in the group at 7-1.
“Ang sa amin, ang focus namin is one game at a time. May opportunity sa top spot at dahil doon, na-motivate ang mga bata, so why not?,” said coach Egay Macaraya.
Clark Derige paced the winless CD14 Designs-Trinity (0-9) with 22 points and five rebounds.
