Palmera-Dy, Glutagence turn back Taguig, take WNBL semis lead

Glutagence survived a Taguig resurgence in the third quarter, 62-53, moving on the cusp of the Pia Cayetano WNBL Finals on Saturday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

Leading by as much as 19 after a jump shot by Carol Sangalang at the 8:19 mark of the third frame, the Glow Boosters looked prime for a breakaway win.

Not so fast, said the Lady Generals.

Taguig went to work after that Sangalang bucket, going on an 18-2 blast to end the period, capped by Monique del Carmen’s four-point play and a buzzer-beating jumper, to inch within three entering the fourth, 38-41.

A deuce by Julie Gula with 2:52 to go in the match restored Glutagence’s lead to double digits at 11, 59-48.

But the Lady Generals just would not give up, stringing five straight points to cut their deficit to just six with 51 seconds remaining.

However, Camille Claro and Raiza Palmera-Dy iced the victory for the Glow Boosters with conversions from the line.

Palmera-Dy filled the stat sheet with 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting, eight rebounds, six assists, and a steal.2021-Pia-WNBL-Glutagence-def-Taguig-Ana-Alicia-Katrina-Castillo-Glutagence-scaled Palmera-Dy, Glutagence turn back Taguig, take WNBL semis lead Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news
