So many key elements kept MCS Varsity going even as it drew fouls against the aggressive MHS Varsity Dolphins.

The Dolphins made a total of 7 fouls in the first half that gave MCS a walk on the park with 9 free points. MCS’ Richardson, Dela Cruz and King all combined for 14 points to end the first half with their team in the lead, 17-13.

Toward the final minutes of the second half, MHS Varsity managed to cut the deficit with Roligat leading his team and giving them a window to send the game to overtime, but in a blink of an eye, MCS picked up every loose ball and converted in transition.

MCS’ fast-paced game was too much the MHS Varsity. Roligat scored10 points, yet his efforts were not enough as the Knights won, 26-19.

MHS JV edges KHS Varsity

MHS JV notched its first win at the expense of KHS Varsity.

John Rizo of MHS JV led the first half, scoring 6 points while Jocas Barrera chipped in 4. MHS JV was on top at the end of the first half, 12-6.

KHS Varsity opened the second half with confidence and cut the lead in the final few minutes. KHS Varsity had an opportunity to win the game after Miguel Fitipol sank in a clutch floater and Cruz chipped in a deuce in transition to give their team a three-point lead, 21-18. However, John Rizo of MHS JV came in hot and scored back-to-back buckets in the last 30 seconds of the second half to secure his team’s first win of the season, 22-21.

In the other games on Tuesday, MHS 3 beat Da’Ok Academy, 29-21; KHS 3 defeated MCS 2, 29-23; KHS JV overpowered MCS 2, 40-20; and KHS 3 slipped past Da’Ok, 20-19.
