Tamaraws snap Chiefs’ unbeaten Filoil streak; Blazers score


Far Eastern University’s veterans stayed steady in the clutch as the Tamaraws stopped the streaking Arellano squad, 81-79, in the Filoil Flying V Hanes Premier Cup yesterday at Filoil Flying V Arena.

Mike Tolomia buried 18 points, including a triple that tied the game at 76, while RR Garcia and Gryann Mendoza also came through as the Tamaraws handed the Chiefs their first loss in five games.

“In the last few minutes, what we only thought of was how to win as a unit,” said coach Nash Racela after his Tamaraws improved to 2-2.

St. Benilde snapped a winless run with a 74-49 rout of University of the Philippines, while Perpetual Help also picked up its first victory, 84-59, over Jose Rizal University.

Mark Romero fired 25 points to power a sizzling Blazers crew that got rolling with a 28-7 start.

“It’s only proper that Mark becomes the leader [following the loss of the veterans],” said Benilde coach Gabby Velasco. With reports from Carla Perez and Nikka Valenzuela
