    DAVAO Occidental-Cocolife and San Juan-Go for Gold arranged a knockout semifinal match-up in the Filbasket Subic Championship following separate victories on Wednesday at the Subic Bay Gymnasium.

    The second-seeded Tigers defeated Burlington EOG, 88-81, while the third-ranked Knights downed Medical Depot, 88-73, in the quarterfinal round, taking advantage of their twice-to-beat advantage to pull through.

    The last two champions of the MPBL will once again clash this time in a knockout game for a spot in the inaugural Filbasket finals.

    Quick-fire Knights

    The Knights opened the fourth on a 12-0 tear to turn a 65-70 deficit into a 77-70 lead. A lay-up by John Wilson brought the lead to 84-74, the biggest of the match.

    Wilson scored 23 points and grabbed eight rebounds, while Keith Agovida had 11 points and nine rebounds for Davao Occidental.
