    EuroMed, SCTEX win opening games in PCBL quarterfinals

    May 7, 2016
    SCTEX's Raul Soyud battles Sta. Lucia's Wowie Escosio for a rebound.

    FORMER pros Lester Alvarez and Jopher Custodio led the way as Euro Med beat Foton, 77-73, in the opener of the quarterfinals of the PCBL Chairman’s Cup on Friday at the Marikina Sports Center.

    Biyaheng SCTEX edged an import-less Sta. Lucia Realty, 77-72, in overtime in the other game.

    Alvarez, a former player for San Mig Coffee, scored back-to-back baskets, giving Euro-Med a 75-71 lead with 1:16 left.

    Levi Hernandez scored with 21 seconds left then Cedrick Ablaza was forced to give up a foul on Custodio.

    Custodio, who played for GlobalPort in the pro league, made his first free throw, but muffed the second, allowing the Toplander a chance to come up with a final offensive play. Mikee Reyes missed a potential game-tying triple with no time left.

    Raul Soyud scored 19 points and 17 boards, while Bayron Villarias also had 19 markers for SCTEX

    SCTEX used an 18-6 spurt to move within six points, 53-47, in the third.

    Jhaps Bautista put the Realtors ahead, 62-60, with a basket, 32 seconds in regulation before Soyud responded at the other end with a getaway layup and sent the match to overtime.
