WNBL: Cainglet, Bacaro rekindle UAAP rivalry as Glutagence snaps skid vs Taguig


Glutagence halted its two-game slide, escaping Taguig, 65-59, in the Pia Cayetano WNBL Season 2021, Sunday at the Bren Z. Guiao Convention Center in San Fernando, Pampanga.

A layup by Lady General Tin Capilit at the 3:26 mark of the payoff period slashed the Glow Boosters lead to just three, 60-57.

However, Capilit was called for a flagrant foul penalty 1 on April Lualhati with 2:33 left, forcing the former to sit down for the next three minutes, basically the rest of the way.

Lualhati then scored the next five points of the match to extend Glutagence’s margin to eight, 65-57, with 1:20 left.

Glutagence cruised to a huge 25-9 advantage after the first frame, however, Taguig retaliated with a 22-4 second frame to go ahead at halftime, 31-29.2021-Pia-WNBL-Glutagence-vs-Taguig-April-Dianne-Lualhati-Glutagence-scaled WNBL: Cainglet, Bacaro rekindle UAAP rivalry as Glutagence snaps skid vs Taguig Basketball NBL News  - philippine sports news

After back-to-back losses against Pacific Water and Parañaque, the Glow Boosters improved to 4-2 after the victory, still at second place.
