In the Open Division, the Blue Eagles clobbered Shirley’s Coffee Shop 89-78.

Esmorez powered through the opening quarter as he found a way to the hoop countless times to put up 11 points and give his team control, 22-7. But despite Shirley’s rough start, its players managed to bounce back in the second canto. Deunas heated up quickly, sizzling 16 points. However, Schmidt retorted with two triples, and with the help of Manolo, Arcon, Barbo and De Guzman, the Blue Eagles maintained the safe distance.

In the second half, the Blue Eagles remained in control as they focused on shutting down Duenas’ output. The Blue Eagles were also able to move the ball around, feeding the inside where Barbo and Demapan capitalized for a combined 10 points. Sablan and Lifoifoi tried to fill for Duenas’ absence but lacked the firepower needed to get back in the game.

Even with Duenas returning to the floor and Jugos finding his range from beyond the arc for Shirleys, the Blue Eagles maintained a steady performance long enough to secure their fourth straight win, 89-78.

Blue Haus 122, Pacific Marine 96

Blue Haus bagged its fourth consecutive by outpointing Pacific Marine in a high-scoring Masters Division game.

At first, Pacific Marine took the lead as Flores could not be stopped. He showed a variety of offensive moves: three-pointers, jumpers and free-throw shots. But Blue Haus quickly turned the tables in the second canto as its players nearly silenced Flores. Diaz exploded with back-to-back buckets to contribute 14 points with Peredo right behind him with eight points to end the first half with Blue Haus in the lead, 49-45.

Blue Haus continued to deliver as the rest of its players joined the onslaught. Guiab and Garcia grabbed the spotlight while Peredo and Diaz never cooled down to push their team’s lead further.

Pacific Marine fought back as Isip and Calunzag found their stroke from the three-point line, but they could not find the support needed to make a comeback. Blue Haus won, 122-96.
