Santi Santillan stars anew as Marinerong Pilipino pounds Chadao-FEU for 2nd win

Now at full strength, the Marinerong Pilipino Skippers pummeled Chadao-FEU, 87-63, for their second win in the 2019 PBA D-League, Tuesday at Paco Arena in Manila.

Jed Mendoza led the uprising. He had six of his 16 points in the third quarter, and also grabbed nine rebounds to guide the Skippers to back-to-back wins.

The Tamaraws fought back from an 11-point halftime deficit, 44-33. They then trimmed the lead down to just four, as Mendoza went on and sparked the 16-3 run for the Skippers. Marinerong Pilipino put up a commanding 60-43 edge with three minutes left in the third frame en route to another blowout win.
