Steve Sir sends Pasig Chooks to must-win situation in Kaohsiung Challenger

Less than 24 hours after a tough loss to Balanga in the finale of the Magiting Cup, Pasig Chooks could not score an upset on Saturday.

The top 3×3 team in the Philippines was overwhelmed by world no. 10 Edmonton, 12-21 (8:59), to open their 2019 Kaohsiung Challenger campaign.

The loss sent Pasig Chooks to a must-win situation against qualifying draw A survivor Panaji 3BL of India. The game takes place at 8:50 pm.

This game was simply too tough for the Philippine-based club, though.

Canadian sharpshooter Steve Sir caught fire early, helping Edmonton gain an early 10-3 cushion just four minutes into the contest.

The trio of Joshua Munzon, Dylan Ababou, and Nikola Pavlovic chopped the lead down to three, 9-12, with 4:34 remaining. Sir, however, was just getting started. He fired off five straight points before Kyle Landry finished the game with 1:01 to spare.

Munzon paced Pasig with seven points, while Pavlovic added four markers.

Sir torched the Philippines with 12 points built on three deuces, five one-pointers, and a free throw.


The Scores:

Pasig 12 – Munzon 7, Pavlovic 4, Ababou 1, Rike 0.

Edmonton 21 – Sir 12, Landry 7, Otieno 2.
