Roxas pounds seven-man MisOr, rises to fourth in VisMin


PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — Petra Cement-Roxas made quick work of the extremely undermanned MisOr, 113-87, for its fourth-straight win in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup, Saturday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium here. 

The Vanguards used a huge 30-18 second period to take a commanding 19-point advantage at the break, 58-39.

Roxas then followed it with another huge frame, outscoring the Brew Authoritea, 36-23, en route to an insurmountable 94-62 lead heading into the final canto.

The Vanguards now leapfrogged Zamboanga City, who lost earlier in the day against Clarin, with a 4-2 win-loss card, good for fourth place.

Already without JR Cawaling (hamstring), Jayson Ballesteros (back spasms), Reil Cervantes (Achilles tendinitis), Ralph Salcedo (back), Andoy Estrella (back spasms), and Lucas Tagarda (ankle sprain) last night, MisOr also did not have Mark Sarangay (back spasms) and Paul Sanga (hand) in the game.

“Sabi ko sa players na huwag sayangin ‘yung opportunity na pito lang ‘yung maglalaro sa kalaban. Kailangan namin tumakbo para from the start pa lang makaramdam na sila ng pagod,” said Roxas head coach Eddie Laure.

James Castro stuffed the stat sheet in just 15 minutes with 17 points, eight assists, and five rebounds for Roxas.

Homegrown Jordan Intic had his best game of the season with 14 points and seven rebounds, while RJ Deles totalled 13 points, five rebounds, and four assists off the bench.

Six-foot-eight Fil-Libyan Seraj Elmejrab also played his best game in a Roxas uniform, tallying 11 points in 15 minutes of action.

The Vanguards pounced MisOr in the paint, 74-30. They also took advantage of their deep bench, 70-20.

MisOr, which only had seven players in the game, was paced by Mac Baracael with 29 points, seven rebounds, and four assists.

Ronjay Buenafe, who exploded for 35 big points last night, was limited to 17 points on 3-of-17 shooting from the field.

This was the Brew Authoritea’s fourth loss in a row, falling to 2-5, tied with Kapatagan for seventh place.

Roxas plays its penultimate elimination round game on Monday, 2 pm against the Buffalo Braves. MisOr will close its schedule against ALZA Alayon on Tuesday, 2 pm.

The Scores:

Roxas 113 – Castro 17, Intic 14, Deles 13, Elmejrab 11, Bondoc 11, Sta. Ana 7, Rifarial 6, Najorda 6, Camacho 6, Pasia 6, Reyes 5, Templo 5, Velasco 4, Casino 2.

MisOr 87 – Baracael 29, Buenafe 17, Sedurifa 14, Munsayac 10, Meca 8, Mendoza 6, Gonzaga 3.

Quarterscores: 28-21, 58-39, 94-72, 113-87.
