Terrafirma boots out Purefoods, completes PBA 3×3 Leg 2 playoff cast

Terrafirma booked the last trip to the PBA 3×3 Leg 2 quarterfinals by booting out Purefoods, 22-12 in the battle for no. 8 Thursday at Ynares Sports Arena.

Terrence Tumalip nailed the game-winning two-pointer with 1:39 left as the Dyip completed the playoff picture at the expense of the first leg’s third-placers.

It was a rousing performance for the ball club, who played inspired basketball as they dedicate their campaign to the recovering Roider Cabrera.

After absorbing an 11-18 loss to Limitless App earlier that made them compete for the final quarters berth, Terrafirma raced to a 10-3 lead behind the collective efforts of Tumalip, Jebb Bulawan, Dhon Reverente, and Matt Salem.

That connection between Salem and Reverente pushed their lead to double digits, 16-6, with 4:26 to go as the Dyip never let up from then on.

Tumalip led Terrafirma with seven points. Reverente supplied six points, as Bulfawan and Salem added five and four markers, respectively.

Meanwhile, Joseph Eriobu had seven points to lead Purefoods, who played in Day 2 with only three men as Val Acuna suffered a broken jaw.

Terrafirma will face Pool A top seed and maiden leg champions TNT Tropang Giga in the knockout quarterfinals of this level four FIBA 3×3 tournament later in the day.

Other brackets will see Meralco battling San Miguel Beer; Limitless App taking on Pioneer Pro Tibay; and Platinum Karaoke facing Sista Super Sealers.

The Scores:

Terrafirma 22 – Tumalip 7, Reverente 6, Bulawan 5, Salem 4.

Purefoods 12 – Eriobu 7, Javelona 5, Mendoza 0.
