MANILA, Philippines – A 9-0 run in the payoff period buoyed La Salle to a 75-67 victory over Perpetual Help Friday in the 2012 Filoil Pre-season Cup at the Arena in San Juan.

From a slim 62-60 advantage, the Green Archers stretched it to a double-digit gap en route to the squad’s fourth victory with just two losses and a third-place spot in group A.

Norbert Torres, backed by rookies Jeron Teng and Mark Tallo, led La Salle with double digit scoring and solid rebounding.

Anthony Paulino and Jett Vidal had 12 and 11 points, respectively, on a losing effort.
