    * * *CEBU CITY – Facing elimination, the defending National Champions M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos summoned all their skills and a little bit of Lady Luck to escape with a 62-58 thriller over the top seed Misamis Oriental Meteors in order to tie their best-of-five 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II National Finals at 2-2 Saturday at the New Cebu Coliseum.

    * * *The deciding Game Five will be played Monday (April 20), still at the New Cebu Coliseum, with the backing of Smart, ML Kwarta Padala, Accel, Air 21, Burlington, Pagcor Sports, Laptop Phoneshop Exchange, Nature's Spring Water and Molten and sanctioned by the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP).

    * * *Shooter Stephen Padilla, who could only muster a total of five points in the series' first three games, connected for eight points in the pivotal fourth period to bail out the Ninos of Michel Lhuillier and Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba.* Padilla banged in a triple that ignited a 14-1 run powered by Marlon Basco, Jercules Tangkay and Mark Ababon that gave the home team their biggest of the game, 55-47.

    * * *The Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno and Coach Jun Noel gamely fought back, with Mark Yee canning two free throws off a Tangkay technical foul for excessive elbowing with 45 ticks left, 54-56.* The Meteors threw the ball away in the ensuing possession, forcing them to foul Padilla, who made the first two of his six key free throws in the waning seconds of the contest.

    * * *Yee then closed the gap anew with two more free throws but it was quickly neutralized by Padilla's next trip to the line.* Suddenly, Erian Daja fielded a perfect inbound baseball pass for a lay-up plus a foul from Abby Santos and still 15 seconds to play, 58-60.* Sadly, Daja missed the bonus charity with Padilla icing the win with two more gift shots with four ticks left, 62-58.* Yee then missed a desperation triple at the buzzer.

    * * *Padilla tallied 14 points to lead the Ninos followed by Basco with 13.* Yee paced the Meteors with 12 markers while Mark Kong and Joey Mente added eight apiece but were both scoreless in the fourth period.* Kong issued a kick out assist to Mente for a triple at the third period buzzer that gave the Meteors a 44-41 edge.

    * * *Prior to Padilla's perfect six of six free throw shooting, the Ninos missed a total of 12 out of 18 free throws, compared to the Meteors' 13 of 15 clip.* “Free throws almost cost us the game and we had bad field goal shooting,” said a visibly relieved winning coach Alcoseba.* “We'll take tonight's win and give it our all in Monday's Game Five.”

    * * *During the halftime break wherein the Meteors nursed a 29-27 advantage, Yee was honored as the conference's Most Valuable Player (MVP).* The do-it-all 6'2” forward out of San Sebastian-Cavite clinched the award with norms of 14.4 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.1 blocks over 28 games.

    How They Scored:

    * * *CEBU (62) – Padilla 14, Basco 13, Santos 9, Enriquez 8, Tangkay 6, Cavan 4, Ababon 4, Mepana 4, Aying 0, Dacia 0, Berame 0, Dizon 0.

    * * *MISAMIS ORIENTAL (5 – Yee 12, Mente 8, Kong 8, Moreno 7, Daja 7, Gudez 6, Micutuan 6, Bombeo 2, Butel 2, Sanchez 0, Tagupa 0.

    * * *Period Scores: 18-16, 27-29, 41-44, 62-58.

    * * *CEBU CITY – The top seed Misamis Oriental Meteors captured the 2009 Smart Liga Pilipinas Conference II National Championship with a sound 64-52 thrashing of the defending champion M. Lhuillier Kwarta Padala-Cebu Ninos Monday night in front of a stunned crowd at the New Cebu Coliseum.* The Meteors thus ended the best-of-five series, 3-2.

    * * *A crippling 24-4 bomb by the Meteors in the third period blew the erstwhile close contest wide apart.* Mark Yee started the initial salvo and Philip Butel, Lyndon Gudez and Ramil Tagupa finished the task giving the Meteors of Gov. Oscar Moreno and Coach Jun Noel their biggest lead of the contest, 53-34,

    * * *Overall, the Meteors outscored the Ninos in the pivotal third period, 26-11.* They nursed a slim 29-27 advantage at the halftime break.* A triple by Stephen Padilla opened the third period, giving the Ninos their final taste of the lead, 30-29.* A maze of turnovers spelled doom for the Ninos, compiling 17 by the end of three periods and 21 for the entire game.

    * * * Back-to-back triples by veteran guard Joey Mente opened the second period followed by the lone basket of center Erian Daja to build the Meteors’ first big lead, 25-14.* The Ninos countered with a 14-3 blitz to close the gap at the halftime break.

    * * *With team owner Michel Lhuillier in attendance, the Ninos of Coach Raul “Yayoy” Alcoseba rushed to a 10-5 lead.* Back-to-back triples by Dexter Micutuan and Mente immediately erased the Ninos’ lead, 11-10, and the Meteors took the first period, 17-14.

    * * *Yee finished with 12 points, 10 coming in the third period, on top of 12 rebounds.* Mente scored all his 11 points in the first half.* Mark Ababon recovered from a shoulder injury in the first half to pump in nine of his team best 13 markers to pace the Ninos.* Marlon Basco followed with 11 points and 14 rebounds.

    * * *For averaging 14.6 points in the series, Yee was named as the Most Valuable Player of the Finals, a fitting follow-up to his Conference MVP award received at halftime of Game Four last Saturday.* Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas (SBP) Vice-Chairman Ricky Vargas and Smart Sports’ Patrick Gregorio awarded the trophies to all the winners.

    * * *“It was a very good series, you never knew the winner until the final minute.* Aside from basketball, I always remind the team that we are here for two things – nation-building and goodwill,” said a very happy Gov. Moreno.* “We are happy to continue the good relations between Cebu and Misamis Oriental.”

    * * *Smart was the main sponsor of the just-concluded conference that was also made possible with the help of ML Kwarta Padala, Accel, Air 21, Burlington, Pagcor Sports, Nature’s Spring Water, Laptop Phoneshop Exchange and Molten and sanctioned by the SBP.

    * * *The Meteors won Games One (70-64) and Three (73-71) and the Ninos took Games Two (58-55) and Four (62-5 to set-up the deciding Game Five.* With the success of Conference II already in the history books, Liga Pilipinas Conference III will commence in the third quarter of this year.

    How They Scored:

    * * *MISAMIS ORIENTAL (64) – Yee 12, Mente 11, Tagupa 9, Kong 8, Gudez 8, Butel 6, Micutuan 5, Moreño 2, Daja 2, Bombeo 0.

    * * *CEBU (52) – Ababon 13, Basco 11, Dacia 8, Padilla 6, Santos 6, Mepana 4, Enriquez 2, Aying 2, Tangkay 0, Cavan 0.

    * * *Period Scores: 17-14, 29-27, 55-38, 64-52.

    * * *(Meteors win series, 3-2)
