Stan Quezon drubs Pacific Water, takes breakthrough WNBL win


Stan Quezon finally earned its breakthrough win, trouncing winless Pacific Water, 69-54, Sunday in the Pia Cayetano WNBL Season 2021 at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

After a tight first half, the Lady Spartans put some separation come the third quarter. They outscored the Queens by six to enter the payoff period ahead by nine, 49-40.

But the job was not yet done and Quezon was aware of it.

The Lady Spartans pounced even more in the final frame, starting with a 13-4 blast, capped by an Anna Iida deuce, to establish an 18-point advantage at the 6:49 mark, 62-44.

The starters did much of the damage for Quezon, led by Kath Araja’s 16-point performance including a clean 5-of-7 clip from deep. She also added eight assists, four steals, and two rebounds.2021-Pia-WNBL-Pacific-Water-vs-Quezon-Jade-Valenzuela-Lady-Spartans-scaled Stan Quezon drubs Pacific Water, takes breakthrough WNBL win Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

Pacific Water shot itself on the foot, committing 33 errors translating to 33 easy points for the Lady Spartans.
