Paranaque weathers Palmera-Dy’s 34, goes to 3-0 in WNBL


Parañaque sustained its perfect run after beating the suddenly-skidding Glutagence, 76-67, Sunday in the 2021 Pia Cayetano WNBL season at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

After a close first quarter, the Lady Aces dropped a 19-point performance in the second period while holding the Glow Boosters to just seven points to build a 37-24 separation at the break.

But with Parañaque leading 59-40 in the final frame, Glutagence unleashed a 12-2 fightback. That chopped the deficit inside a single digit with five minutes left, 52-61.

The Lady Aces, though, did not collapse completely. They stayed afloat with a combination of timely baskets and defensive stops to preserve their immaculate record.

Choy Bauhyan followed suit with nine points and five rebounds while April Siat and Mardyn Tingcang got eight points each.

Lady Aces leader Allana Lim also had a monster rebounding game with 16 to go with her eight points.
