(The Freeman) - March 17, 2019 - 12:00am

CEBU, Philippines —  The Consolacion Sarok Weavers pulled off an 86-85 cliffhanger over Team Mandaue  to take the early lead in 6th District cluster in the Cebu Governor’s Cup 2019 Inter Cities and Municipalities Under 21 Developmental Basketball Tournament last Friday night at the Mandaue City Cultural and Sports Complex.


It was Consolacion's second straight win under coach Paul Alelu Flores, a former standout of the Far Eastern University (FEU) Tamaraws who played alongside PBA superstar Arwind Santos during their collegiate days in the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).

The Sarok Weavers might not have minded it but their victory gave Gary Cortes, who powered the University of the Visayas (UV) Green Lancers to a rare grandslam feat in the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation, Inc. (CESAFI), a rude welcome as new head coach of Mandaue in the province-wide tilt organized by the Cebu Provincial Sports Commission (CPSC).

John Lloyd Pepito scattered 16 points, while Brevin Keith Padayogdog and Kin Dayday chipped in 14 markers apiece for the Sarok Weavers, who used a decisive endgame assault to stun Mandaue.

Kenneth Brillo posted a game-high 20 points, while Gabriel Cometa and Lemuel Jake Gonzaga tallied 27 points in between them in a losing cause for Mandaue.

In the 5th District Bracket A games over at the Borbon municipal gym, Borbon slammed Catmon, 77-59, while Sogod edged Carmen, 71-67.

Down South for the 2nd District action at the Oslob municipal gym, the Oslob Sharks swallowed the Santander Kangaroos, 79-70, Argao bested Samboan, 74-64, while Alcoy clobbered Boljoon, 72-56.

Jaybert Olahay pumped in 11 of his 21 points in the first quarter, while Renzo Dumnik Abines scored 18 points, including 10 straight midway in the final period that keyed Oslob's triumph.

In the other results, Tuburan pummeled Barili, 107-90, Dumanjug won by default over Moalboal, Ronda edged Alcantara, 74-66, Alegria outlasted Ginatilan, 88-67, while Malabuyoc rolled past Badian, 81-75. — EBV
