The Beermen leaned on the game-winning deuce of Wendell Comboy to oust Platinum Karaoke in a low-scoring quarterfinal that went into overtime, 10-8, while the Titans rallied back behind Joseph Eriobu and Jed Mendoza in overcoming Limitless App also in overtime, 18-16.
Mendoza won it for the Titans in the extra period with a corner deuce, while Eriobou sent the game into overtime with a long two for a 16-16 count.
Mendoza and Eriobu combined for all but two of the Titans’ total output on their way to the semifinals opposite Sista Super Sealers, who stunned second seeded Meralco, 18-12.
Comboy meanwhile, had a team-high seven points in leading the Beermen to the next round against top seed TNT Tropang Giga, a 21-14 winner over Barangay Ginebra in the first quarterfinals match played at Robinsons Place Manila.
Jed Mendoza and the Titans march on.
