EHROLL Peredo showed finesse on the floor during Thursday’s Masters Division game of the United Filipino Organization-IT&E Basketball League as he carried Blue Haus to a 97-63 victory against Old iSkool at the Gilbert C. Ada Gym.

Peredo constantly met the bottom of the net right from the start. With his back to the basket or in triple-threat position, he drained nearly each and every shot he made. But he was not the only Blue Haus player on the floor that went on an offensive spree as Esdrelon led the opening quarter with two triples to give his team a 31-8 lead.

Old iSkool started to pick up the pace in the second canto as Pangelinan and Camacho found their stroke with six points apiece, but so did Blue Haus whose players started to chip in points to maintain a 20-point distance.

Old iSkool’s momentum then started to lose fire in the second half as only Pangelinan and Camacho could maintain efficiency while Blue Haus continued its dominance.

Peredo added six more points while Esdrelon and Tony Diaz contributed a triple each. With Peredo out of the fourth and final quarter, Berline took over, making his height known with six points while Diaz joined in with six more to power Blue Haus to a blowout victory, 97-63.

Vision RNV 95, Team Lakay 90

In the Open Division, Vision RNV prevented Team Lakay from pulling a comeback.

RNV used the first quarter to set the tone, thanks to Esdrelon firing off with three triples while Rueda supported with seven points for a nine-point RNV spread.

But Team Lakay fought back in the second quarter. Capalad and Bernardo found answers from beyond the arc with a total of three makes putting their team within reach, 45-48.

After the halftime break, however, Team Lakay started to fall apart. Its players’ inability to create second-chance buckets off rebounds was their biggest weakness as RNV turned each successful stop into a made bucket on the other end. De Vero decided to join the run with six points while De Dios and Rueda paired up with the in-and-out game sinking a couple of triples along with a few around the perimeter to regain a seven-point spread.

Lakay’s persistency paid off in the final quarter thanks to its players’ speed. Alegre, Bernardo and Capalad regained their rhythm with back-to-back buckets, nearly stealing the lead. Luckily for RNV, its players kept their cool with consistent three-pointers as Peredo and De Vero attacked from within to pull away with the win, 95-90.
