    Re: Trace-Laguna Stallions -- The Dark Horse

    LOS BANOS, LAGUNA – Burly center Ariel de Castro scored eight points in a crippling 11-0 windup to send Forward Taguig into the championship game of the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Laguna Leg at the expense of host Trace-Laguna Stallions, 77-74, at the Stallions’ Gym of Trace College Friday night.

    De Castro, a product of the National University, capped his heroics with the go-ahead basket at the 16-second mark, 76-74. Alex Angeles then drove to the hoop and issued a drop pass only to see the ball slip from Ron Capati’s hands and return possession to Taguig.

    Rex Leynes was quickly fouled and he split his charities for the final tally with six ticks to play. Lou Gatumbato then preserved the win by tapping the ball away from Jan Villaver into the waiting arms of Leynes who then dribbled the time away.

    The Stallions of Atty. Erwin Genuino and Coach Nomar Isla were comfortably ahead entering the final two minutes, 74-64, thanks to back-to-back triples by RB Mangahas and a Capati basket. That was the last to be heard from the hosts as they bungled four free throws and committed costly errors down the stretch.

    Paul Reguera led Taguig with 15 points followed Gatumbato with 14. Mangahas paced the Stallions with 16 and Villaver added 15 markers.

    Taguig of Mayor Freddie Tinga and Coach Bing Victoria will meet defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors in the one-game finale. The Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno and Coach Jun Noel formalized their entry in the finals by punishing the MP Warriors of GenSan in the first game, 95-80.

    The Meteors opened the contest with a 14-0 run and never looked back. The best that the Warriors of Manny Pacquiao and Coach Ramon Pido could do was to threaten via a Jomer Rubi basket in the third canto, 40-46.

    Back-to-back field goals by Melvin Mamaclay and Rocky Clavel to start the final period erected the Meteors’ biggest advantage, 71-50. The win proved costly again as the Meteors’ rotation was further decimated with prolific guard Lyndon Gudez twisting his right knee in the second period. Gudez and opening day casualty Mark Moreno are doubtful for the championship game.

    Patrick Cabahug topped the Meteors with 16 points while Clavel and Ramil Tagupa contributed 15 points each. Bob Cozy Ilanga led the Warriors with 17 points followed by Jasper Callo with 12.

    The Meteors’ three-game sweep of the preliminaries earned them a two-point bonus as they moved into good position to barge into the upper half of the overall tour standings of the league backed by Smart, Accel, Molten, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    Selected games from the Laguna Leg will be shown next week via Solar Sports from Wednesday to Saturday. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics are seen daily on Viva Prime Channel. The league’s official website is at www.ligapilipinas.net.

    Re: Trace-Laguna Stallions -- The Dark Horse

    LOS BANOS, LAGUNA – The defending National Champion Misamis Oriental Meteors survived a slew of injuries to key players to take home the championship of the Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference III Laguna Leg at the expense of Forward Taguig, 84-77, Saturday at the Stallions’ Gym of Trace College.

    Already without guards Mark Moreno (ankle) and Lyndon Gudez (knee) who sustained injuries in the preliminary round, the Meteors’ rotation got further decimated with the Ramil Tagupa dislocating his right index finger in the first quarter.

    Coach Jun Noel found relief in seldom-used guard Rocky Sanchez who slowly rallied the Meteors. Sanchez, a one-time National University Bulldog, capped his game-long brilliance with a three-point play at the 4:31 mark that gave the Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno the lead for good, 73-71.

    The Meteors then clamped on defense, capitalizing on Taguig’s errors and forced shots to pull further away by the 23-second mark, 83-74.

    Taguig of Mayor Freddie Tinga and Coach Bing Victoria took advantage of the Meteors’ manpower woes and raced to a 26-15 lead after the opening period. Taguig remained firmly in control as Paul Reguera and Rex Leynes launched back-to-back triples to give them the lead for the last time, 71-70, and 4:47 left in the contest.

    Sanchez starred in the championship game with 18 points followed by Eder Saldua with 17. Harold Sta. Cruz had 16 points and 15 rebounds in the losing cause followed by Lou Gatumbato with 15.

    PAGCOR Chairman Ephraim Genuino awarded the championship trophy to the Meteors, their fourth overall and first in this conference backed by Smart, Accel, Molten, Calcium-Cee, Gatorade, Air 21 and Burlington and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    With an average of 18.3 points in the tournament, gunner Patrick Cabahug of the Meteors was honored as the leg’s Most Valuable Player (MVP).

    The four-game sweep and 15 points earned by the Meteors promoted them all the way to Second Place in the overall Tour Standings with 26 points. Taguig collected five points and moved to Third Place with 25 points. The undefeated M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos are far ahead with 45 points and are assured of the top spot in November’s Super Leg that will determine the next National Champion.

    Earlier in the day, the host Trace-Laguna Stallions of Atty. Erwin Genuino and Coach Nomar Isla ended the tournament on a winning note by taking Third Place over the struggling MP Warriors of GenSan of Manny Pacquiao and Coach Ramon Pido, 73-60.

    Ron Capati led the Stallions with 16 points followed by Jay-Arr Estrada and RB Mangahas with 12 apiece. Jasper Callo was the lone Warrior in twin digits with 14. Dondon Tadena and Dave Sagad chipped in eight points each.

    The Liga Pilipinas Tour will take a break this week with play resuming with a doubleheader on October 14 in Mandaue City as Cebu Landmaster-Mandaue hosts Taguig, the Quezon Red Oilers and the Zamboanga Uno Latinos.

    Selected games from the Laguna Leg will be televised next week over Solar Sports. Also, Liga Pilipinas Classics air daily on Viva Prime Channel. More information may be found at www.ligapilipinas.net.

    How They Scored:

    For Third Place

    The Dark Horse is perfect phrase for Trace-Laguna Stallions.
