    Cedric Ablaza, Marlon Gomez power Foton to victory over Sta. Lucia

    Apr 14, 2016

    CEDRIC Ablaza scored 25 points and Marlon Gomez added 21 as Foton beat Sta. Lucia, 86-72, on Wednesday in the PCBL Chairman’s Cup at the Marikina Sports Center.

    Ed Rivera added 14 points and Jerick Nacpil chipped in with 13 as the Toplander evened their win-loss record to 4-4 and gained a share of second spot with the Realtors and Jumbo Plastic.

     “We’re just happy with what we are accomplishing,” said Foton coach Budds Reyes.

    “What’s important more than the wins is that these young men are being transformed into men with character.”

    Foton used a 11-0 run in the third period to take control, 51-45. A basket by Rivera in the 6:54 mark gave the Toplander a 72-58 lead.

    The Realtors suffered their second straight loss.

    The Linoleum Giants beat Biyaheng SCTEX, 68-60, with James Martinez and Jeff Viernes combining for 31 points to snap a two-game skid.

    SCTEX absorbed its second loss in a row to fall to 3-4 in a tie with Euro-Med at fifth in the tournament in this tournament supported by LGR, Spalding, Ambucore, Gerry’s Grill, During’s Barbeque and Restaurant and Hahn Manila.
