(The Freeman) - October 23, 2015 - 10:00am

CEBU, Philippines - Barangays Casili and Tilhaong snared the championship trophies in their respective divisions in the 5th Mayor Teresa P. Alegado Cup Fiesta Basketball League recently at the Tayud gym in Consolacion, Cebu.

Casili downed Cabangahan, 64-55, to successfully defend its title in the SK Category A, while Tilhaong upended Garing, 66-60, to lord it over the SK Category B.

In complete command from the start, Casili never looked back after taking an early 19-16 lead, which it turned into an 11-point bubble, 50-39, heading into the final 10-minute mark of contest.

Casili has Cyril Sabellana mainly to thank for as his able leadership and excellent quarterbacking skills spurred them to a resounding victory.

Sabellana topscored with 17 points on the way to win the Finals MVP award. Rey Gonzaga and JK Gonzaga ably backed him up with 12 markers apiece.

Braven Padayogdog had 21 points in a losing effort for Cabangahan. He still has something to be happy about though as he was named as the regular season MVP with an average of 17.8 points per game.

In SK Category B,  Jade Goc-ong topscored for Tilhaong with 25. He normed 15.6ppg to sweep the regular season and Finals MVP honors.

The month-long tournament, which is among the highlights of Consolacion's annual fiesta this October 29 in honor of their beloved patron San Narciso, was made possible through the all-out support of Mayor Teresa ‘Nene’ Alegado and Vice Mayor Rey Damole, and the hardworking sports committee co-chaired by municipal councilors Nilo Ferraren and Boy Tibon and ABC President Marilou Casul.

The games were supervised by league commissioner Paul Alelu Q. Flores, a former star of the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws during his UAAP days, assisted by technical committee head Aurelio Eslawan.— EBV (FREEMAN)
