    Caida Tiles wallops Sta. Lucia, secures twice-to-beat edge in PCBL caging

    Nov 20, 2015

    CAIDA Tiles walloped Sta. Lucia, 90-79, on Thursday night to secure a twice-to-beat advantage heading to the quarterfinal round of the PCBL Founders Cup  at the JCSGO Gym.

    Foton, on the other hand, notched its first back-to-back victories in the tournament, outlasting Kama Motors, 87-84, to make the race for the top four more exciting.

    The Tile Masters used a telling 15-2 run in the fourth quarter to turn the tables on the Realtors and turn a 64-60 deficit into a 75-66 advantage off a fastbreak basket by Gio Jalalon with still 4:26 left in the fourth period.

    But Caida held on down the stretch to pick up its seventh win in nine games with still a game to go left in its schedule.

    The League-leader is already assured of a twice-to-beat and head coach Mike Buendia is happy to reach their goal in this tournament supported by Ambucore, Accel, Spalding and Aquabest.

    “That’s really our objective, to get the twice-to-beat,” said Buendia. “We don’t know whether we end up at No.1 or No.2, but we’re happy to get the twice-to-beat.”

    Billy Robles led the way for Caida with 22 points followed by ex-pro Marvin Hayes with 15. Jalalon chipped in 10.

    Foton relied on Allan Mangahas’ clutch performance to outlast Kama Motors in the other game. It was the third win in nine games for the Toplander while snapping their rivals’ two-game winning streak.
