Taguig limits Glutagence to just 32 points, forces WNBL semis rubber


Second seed Taguig forced a rubber match after putting up a defensive masterclass over third-ranked Glutagence, 63-32, in Game Two of the Pia Cayetano WNBL best-of-three semifinals at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga on Sunday.

The Lady Generals limited the Glow Boosters to a season-low 32 points on a measly 11-of-66 shooting from the field, a poor 16 percent. That’s a 19-point difference from their previous low at 51 in their second round clash with Taguig in the elimination round.

The rout was fueled by a strong first half that saw the Lady Generals take a 33-9 advantage at the break.

The second quarter was the biggest of quarters for Taguig, converting 19 points while holding Glutagence to just three points courtesy of an Ays Hufanda trey.

Janeth Sison topscored for the Lady Generals with 12 points, five rebounds, and three assists.

Wiz Duazo, upgraded to a starter, came up huge with almost a double-double performance of 10 points and nine rebounds.

Sofia Felisarta led the second-stringers with nine points while Chu Bacaro added seven points.2021-Pia-WNBL-Glutagence-vs-Taguig-Monique-Allison-del-Carmen-Lady-Generals-scaled Taguig limits Glutagence to just 32 points, forces WNBL semis rubber Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

Raiza Palmera-Dy led the Glow Boosters anew with 17 points on 6-of-23 shooting and 11 rebounds. However, in the futile first half, she only had three points.
