Perlas posts third straight win after 78-point drubbing of Vietnam

After lambasting Laos, Perlas Pilipinas sustained their momentum, thrashing Vietnam by 78, 134-56, to solidify their grip on the number one spot in the 2016 SEABA Championship for Women, Thursday evening at Malacca, Malaysia.

Six Filipina cagebelles produced two-digit stats in tonight’s lopsided victory. Janine Pontejos topscored for Philippines with 23 markers. FEU alumni Camille Sambile and Allana Lim had 20 and 17. NU product Afril Bernardino supplied 14, while Analyn Almazan and Cindy Resultay chipped in 12 and 10, respectively.

Perlas got off to a great start in the opening quarter, taking advantage of Vietnam’s sloppy play to zoom to a 14-0 lead with less than five minutes left. The Viets broke into the scoring block off jumpers,16-6, but could not get any closer as Perlas made a 10-2 run to end the frame with a wide 26-8 lead.

From 30-9 early in the second frame, Perlas went on a rampage, scoring 21 straight to establish a 51-9 lead midway. Vietnam were able to punch in baskets and reach double-digits, 54-14, but Perlas were too much for them to handle. The first half ended in Perlas’ favor with a 45-point advantage, 67-22.

The Filipinas kept pounding Vietnam in the third chapter with their fluid ball movement that led to baskets off mid-range shots. Their lead ballooned by as much as 58, 88-29, approaching the four-minute mark. With Perlas’ dominance on both ends, they ended the third ahead, 95-41.

From the 50-plus advantage, Perlas went full blast in the final chapter. They reached the century mark, 100-43, early in the frame. From that point on, Perlas kept the Viets at bay by scoring 34 more to reign victorious at the final buzzer, 134-56.
