    The Lady Aces got off to a 19-2 start at the end of the first period and even took a 53-25 lead late in the third.

    But Taguig came storming back and came to within only eight, 58-50, on a Janeth Sison three-point shot, but time was not on the side of the Lady Generals with April Siat knocking down two free throws to extend the lead to double digits.

    Clare Castro also had solid outing where he had eight points, seven rebounds, and two blocks for Paranaque.

    Marichu Bacaro had 17 points for Taguig, but its poor start when it failed to convert a field goal in the first period cost the Lady Generals.
