CAVITEX and NorthPort earned their first win in the PBA 3x3 Lakas Ng Tatlo with hardly a sweat.
The Braves and Batang Pier won by forfeiture over Pioneer Pro Tibay, which wasn’t allowed to play in the opening day of the maiden leg for failure to secure a medical clearance from the Games and Amusements Board (GAB).
Cavitex and Pioneer were set to clash in the fourth of a heavy 17-game schedule set at the Ynares Sports Arena in Pasig.
Pioneer in danger of early exit
Pioneer forfeited as well its second game opposite NorthPort, leaving it winless in Pool C and in danger of early elimination.
Pioneer lists Robin Rono, Gian Abrigo, Carlo De Chavez, and Carlo Escalambre in its four-man roster, with Dan Reducto and Christian Rivera as reserves.
