NBL: Apolonio, La Union vent ire on Bulacan to create logjam for second

After a 59-point embarrassment yesterday vs Pampanga, La Union bounced back with a 110-92 crushing of Bulacan DF, Sunday in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go NBL Chairman’s Cup at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

The PAOwer used a 32-point third quarter to build momentum, all while holding the Republicans to just 21 to establish a 12 point lead entering the payoff period, 80-68.

La Union then just traded baskets with Bulacan in the fourth, much to its advantage for a 6-2 win-loss record, tied with Muntinlupa for second.

Jayson Apolonio had an all-around game for the PAOwer with 24 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block.
