AQUA EPOXY Stuns PERMAFILL in Opener of BOYSEN Cup


AQUA EPOXY Stuns PERMAFILL in Opener of BOYSEN Cup

Aqua Epoxy stunned Permafil 75 to 67 in the opening game of the BOYSEN CUP at the Dapitan Sports Center Gym in Sampaloc, Manila. The opening of the BOYSEN CUP signaled the start of the 2003 season of the Architects' Basketball Union (ABU), the premier basketball club of architects in the country.

Aqua Epoxy maintained a single digit lead throughout most of the game, but a late rally by Permafill reduced the lead to four going into the final minute. Power forward Joseph Gaytano of Aqua Epoxy erupted for 10 points in the fourth quarter, but it was his pesky defense that led to 6 crucial steals in the final six minutes of the quarter that allowed his team to maintain its lead in the fourth. High scorer for Permafil was Efren del Rosario with 15 points.

In the second game, Decoré subdued a stubborn Primeguard team 89 to 87 in overtime. Decoré established a 15 point lead early in the second quarter. But a spirited Primeguard team slowly narrowed down the lead in the second half. Primeguard's top center Ed Casares fouled out with 6 minutes in the fourth, but Decoré failed to capitalize as they continued to lose the lead going into the final minute. The two teams exchanged baskets but Primeguard's Roy Punla was able to convert on a fastbreak at the buzzer to tie the game 74 all at the end of regulation time.

The two teams continued to trade baskets in the overtime period but two costly turnovers by Primeguard allowed Decoré to extend the lead to four in the final 30 seconds. But a fighting Primeguard team continued to claw back. In the end, it was steady foul shooting that sealed the victory for Decoré as point guard Jun Roberto scored 4 points from the foul line in the final 15 seconds of the ballgame.

Decoré's Richard Ortiz led all scorers with 28 points, while Anthony Apolinario, Mark Santos and Chris Co, all of Primeguard, scored 17 points apiece to lead their team on a losing effort.

On Saturday, Aqua Epoxy will face Decore in the first game, while Permafill will be pitted against Primeguard. All games in the Boysen Cup will be held at the Dapitan Sports Center.
