DOJ Justice Boosters ramp up their endurance practices as they are set to go against the leading PNP Responders in the main game at 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 10.

“May twice a week kami na practice para makasabay kami sa ibang team,” Coach John Agbayani Jr. said.

(We now have a twice a week practice to compete with other teams.)

PNP, meanwhile, is eyeing to keep the top spot in all seven elimination games to snag this year’s off season title by beefing up their offense and defense plays.

Coach SPO2 Alfred Cuarez expressed, “One game at a time pero kung pwede mas gusto namin hanggang doon sa pinakadulo walang talo.”

(One game at a time but as much as possible, we want to win until the end.)

In the other games, Malacañang-PSC Kamao and GSIS Thunder Furies are now both in a must-win situation after absorbing successive defeats in the ongoing elimination rounds in the UNTV Cup off Season Executive Face-off.

Malacañang-PSC and GSIS Thunder Furies will clash at this Sunday’s second game, 3:30 pm at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Thunder Furies hope to defeat Kamao to end their losing streak and claim more victory in their remaining four matches.

“Nandoon ang tira namin pero ang dumipensa sa kanila yung pagod,” Coach Banzali said.

(We tried scoring but fatigue caught up with my players)

For now, GSIS, Malacañang-PSC and off season defending champion AFP Cavaliers are at the bottom of the score ladder. — Bernard Dadis | UNTV News  & Rescue

Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong Go” exploded anew with 47 pts last Sunday, toppling his previous career-high of 44 pts and leading  the Malacañang-PSC Kamao to its 2nd win at UNTV Cup Off-Season Executive Face-Off.

Bong Go connected 7 three-pointers (21 pts of 47 pts) with 5 rebounds and 1 steal in their battle against the defending off-season champion AFP Cavaliers, 87-69, at the Pasig City Sports Center.

This is also the 2nd time Secretary Go was selected as Best Player of the Game. The first time was when they played against the GSIS Thunder Furies.

“We’re very happy nanalo na kami two consecutive games after losing the first 3 games. Though our chances are very slim right now [kasi] nasa middle kami ng standings… still we will give out best shot on our last two games para sa team,” Secretary Bong Go said.

(We’re very happy that we won two consecutive games after losing our first 3 games. Though our chances are very slim right now because we’re at the middle in the standings… still we will give our best shot in our last two games for the team.)

Meanwhile, Senate Sentinels ended DOJ Justice Boosters bid to the Final Four playoffs spot after a breath-taking victory, 76-72.

Sen. Sonny Angara was hailed as Best Player of the Game with 22 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals.

Senator Joel Villanueva also added 10 points in the game but rested early due to shoulder and thigh injuries.

Coach Mike Fermin said, “Sobrang halaga kasi do or die to eh, pag natalo laglag na kami. If we lose again, we’re done. So, it’s a good thing nag-respond yung mga players.”

(This game is very important because it’s a do-or-die situation. If we lose, we fall. If we lose again, we’re done. So, it’s a good thing that the players responded.)

Senator Sonny Angara expressed, “Nagpapasalamat ako sa Dios, sa teammates ko; everyone gave extra effort.”

(I thank God, my teammates; everyone gave extra effort.)

With this win, the Senate Sentinels cling to the 4th spot of the UNTV Cup standing with 4-2 win-lost achievement.

While DOJ fell to 2-4 win-lost record.

In the other game, Judiciary Magis claims the 2nd spot in the ranking together with the Ombudsman Graft Busters with 4-1 win-lost record after a landslide win against the GSIS Thunder Furies, 105-50.

This game is very important to the Magis as with their incoming games with Ombudsman and Senate because of the twice-to-beat advantage opportunity.

Magis Head Coach Warren Ybañez said, “Mahalaga kasi kailangan namin maging top two eh kasi yung PNP top one ngayon.”

(This win is important because we need to be in the 2nd spot because PNP is on the top 1.)

The Sentinels meanwhile are raring to add more wins to their current 3-2 record, hoping for the return of their ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara who missed the games last week due to injury.

Sentinels Coach Mike Fermin said, “They said they can’t play this game and then in the next two games they will give everything. We really need to win the last two games to get to the final four.”

PNP Responders keep lead with 6-0 record

PNP’s Tower of Power. Police Superintendent Voltaire Rivera (#11) provided 15 points, 15 rebounds, 3 steals and 2 blocks to combine to Joel De Mesa’s 21 pts, Philip Phillips’ 15 points in leading the PNP Responders victory against the Senate Sentinals on June 17, 2018, at the Pasig City Sports Center for the elimination round of the #UNTVCupOffSeason Executive Faceoff.

PNP Responders’ eyes are firmly on the prize this off season as it continues to bulldoze its way to the playoffs after routing Senate Sentinels at Sunday’s main game, 86-64.

PSupt Joel De Mesa led the PNP in keeping its 6-0 lead with his 21-point finish with 4 rebounds.

“Salamat sa Dios, salamat sa pag-guide sa amin at saka yung effort talaga, team effort from the players and the coaching staff nagwo-work talaga, nag ge-gel kami,” PNP Responders Head Coach SPO2 Alfred Suarez said.

(Thanks be to God. Thank you for the guidance and for the team effort from the players and the coaching staff. It really works, we gel together.)

Senate attributed its second defeat to the absence of its ace players, Senators Joel Villanueva and Sonny Angara.

“Si Senator Joel [Villanueva] kasi may hamstring injury si Senator Sonny [Angara] naman yung tuhod nya medyo sumasakit. It bothered him sa mga previous game namin, so malaking kawalan,” Senate Sentinels Head Coach Mike Fermin said.

(Senator Joel has a hamstring injury while Senator Sonny was complaining of knee pains. It was bothering him in our previous games so it’s a big loss really.)

DOJ Justice Boosters, meanwhile, widens berth to playoffs after handing AFP Cavaliers its fourth consecutive loss, 77-69.

The recent defeat further obscures AFP’s chances of defending their title while DOJ needs to win two more games to survive the elimination rounds.

Senior Assistant City Prosecutor Nonilon Tagalicud lifted DOJ with 21 points, 11 rebounds and two assists.

“Medyo maganda nilaro namin sa defense. Siguro kailangan pa naming manalo next game,” DOJ Head Coach Noli Mejo said.

(We had good defense plays so we need to win in the next game.)

Ombudsman Graft Busters also gained more chances of qualifying to the final four after clobbering GSIS Thunder Furies, 62-42.
