“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.

“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

Budget deliberations resume as Senate session reopens

by UNTV News and Rescue   |   Posted on Monday, November 12th, 2018

 

A Senate hearing

PASAY CITY, Philippines – At the resumption of Senate session on Monday (November 12) the lawmakers went straight to the discussion of budget appropriations for key government agencies.

First to be discussed were budget proposals of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG); the President Communications Operations Office (PCOO); and the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH).

DILG Secretary Eduardo Año and Philippine National Police (PNP) Chief Director General Oscar Albayalde attended the deliberations to answer inquiries from lawmakers.

Senator Panfilo Lacson particularly scrutinized the PNP’s proposed budget for recruitment of new policemen in order to attain its target of ration of 1 cop for every 500 people.

The DILG said their recruitment continues, therefore, they need enough budget to sustain police training for new cops.

Meanwhile, the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP) claimed the agency is still short of 35,000 people in its current manpower as compared to the country’s growing population.

The agency, also, noted a shortage of around 1,296 fire trucks.

Among the priority legislation, the Senate is expected to tackle on the course of the week will be the Medical Scholarship Bill which seeks to provide free medical education to Filipinos on the condition that the scholars will render five-year service in the Philippines after graduation. – Marje Pelayo (with reports from Nel Maribojoc)

Two-time champion AFP Cavaliers maintains its pristine record after routing the GSIS Furies, 93-87, in a match held on Sunday at the Pasig City Sports Center.

Best Players of the Game, Vicente Evidor and Boyet Bautista, led the AFP with their combined scores of 40 points and 9 rebounds.

This fourth victory earns the AFP a ticket to the second-round eliminations while the GSIS Furies bid farewell to this season after failing to win any of their games.

“Hopefully, magtuloy tuloy. It’s a long way to go. Syempre, hindi pa kailangang mag-relax,” AFP Cavaliers Coach CPL Cornelio “Sonny” Manucat said.

(Hopefully, our winning streak will continue. It’s a long way to go. Of course, we should not relax yet.)

The AFP is set to face the Season 6 champion Senate Defenders in a match on November 8, Thursday.

Two-time champion Judiciary Magis, meanwhile, finally barged into the win column after clobbering the Ombudsman Graft Busters, 104-65.

Richard Litonjua and Edu Mustre’s combined 24 points led the Judiciary to victory which has now climbed up in the rankings with one win and three losses.

“Itong huling ensayo namin, hard practice na kami, more on defense na kami dahil yun ang nagiging problema,” Judiciary Magis head coach said.

(Our last practice was a hard one, we practiced more on defense because that’s where we are lacking.)

The Judiciary is set to battle with PhilHealth Plus, who keeps two-two win-loss record, in a knockout game on Sunday.

The Ombudsman meanwhile will collide with the NHA Builders in a non-bearing game on November 8.

The rookie team PITC Global Traders also gained a bigger chance to advance to this season’s second round eliminations after defeating DOJ Boosters, 74-60.

Rod Vasaloo and Haddi Porto earned the Best Players of the Game title after bucketing 22 and 15 points, respectively.

“Kaya masaya kaming lahat dahil alam namin na this game is very important to the team. We promised Boss Dave [ Alamarinez] na pag-uwi nya may lalaruan pa sya na liga. So eto nag trabaho naman lahat,” PITC coach Victor Ycasiano said.

(We are happy because we know how important this game is. We promised Boss Dave Almarinez that when he returns he still has a league to play in. So, everyone worked hard for it.)

Meanwhile, DOJ Justice Boosters Coach Reynaldo Tomas Jr. said, “Back breaker talaga yung dalawang tres ng (PITC) imbes na apat na lang yung lamang nila naging sampu agad, eh. So kahit papaano nakakabawas ng moral yun…kaya hindi na namin kinaya noong huli.”

(The 2 consecutive three-pointers of PITC were back breakers. Instead of catching up only 4 points, it ballooned to 10 points. It was quite demoralizing; we failed to recover.) — Bernard Dadis / UNTV News & Rescue
