Taguig survives war vs Pacific Water, nabs third win in WNBL

Taguig survived a defensive battle against Pacific Water, 43-34, in the Pia Cayetano WNBL Season 2021, Sunday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center.

Trailing by double digits multiple times, the Queens tried to claw back in the game with four straight points, 30-36, with still 3:24 to go.

But their offense betrayed Pacific Water thereafter.

They missed their next six field goals and four attempts at the free-throw line, ultimately giving the Lady Generals the win.

The Queens’ offense was silent throughout the night, failing to register double-digits in all but one quarter.

Despite not having any player in twin figures in scoring, Taguig still got its third win in five tries. They were led by the nine-point outing of Tin Capilit.
