With 10 injuries, MisOr concedes ahead of VisMin Mindanao playoffs


PAGADIAN, ZAMBOANGA DEL SUR — MisOr Brew Authoritea conceded all of its remaining games in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Leg, Tuesday noon.

In a letter dated July 25 addressed to the league’s top brass, MisOr bared its sudden decision, two days before the playoffs.

The Brew Authoritea came up with that resolution due to numerous injuries the team had incurred throughout the tournament.

“We humbly request to be pulled out from the tournament and won’t play the remaining games,” read the letter signed by team owner Mogs Gonzales, head coach Vis Valencia, team captain JR Cawaling, and PT Eleazar Severino.

“Most of our players were hit by injuries and some are not feeling well, which caused us the significant outcome of the games.”

In its game against Petra Cement-Roxas last Saturday, only seven players were able to suit up for the injury-plagued squad, resulting in an 87-113 defeat.

In the game prior to that, MisOr was left with just nine players against Basilan, again, due to injuries. They succumbed in that game by a mile, 106-140.

With the development, the Brew Authoritea’s game against Zamboanga del Sur scheduled last Tuesday went to ALZA Alayon via default. In this game, only six players could have been available if they played it.

Joseph Sedurifa, Paul Sanga, Francis Munsayac, Brylle Meca, Irvin Mendoza, and John Gonzaga were the only ones fit to see action.

JR Cawaling (hamstring strain), Jayson Ballesteros (back spasms), Reil Cervantes (Achilles tendonitis), Ralph Salcedo (sciatic pain syndrome), Andoy Estrella (back spasms), Mark Sarangay (back spasms), Mac Baracael (groin strain), Lucas Tagarda (ankle sprain), Ralph Cawaling (ankle sprain), and Ronjay Buenafe (back spasms/groin strain) all have injuries to nurse.

In the quarterfinals, MisOr was supposed to face fourth-ranked Roxas. In effect, the Vanguards go straight to the semis and will wait for the winner of Pagadian-Kapatagan matchup.

Despite the sudden decision, MisOr promised to return come the next season of the Chooks-to-Go-backed regional pro league.

“Rest assured that we will be back stronger and be a better team next season.”
