Ravena, Mighty Sports foil Jumbo Plastic

/ 01:42 AM March 08, 2016

MIGHTY Sports pulled off an auspicious debut in the PCBL Chairman’s Cup by stunning Jumbo Plastic, 79-70, last Sunday while Sta. Lucia opened its campaign on a positive note at Malolos Sports and Convention Center in Malolos, Bulacan.

Former Ateneo star Kiefer Ravena delivered a noteworthy performance in his first PCBL game, finishing with 16 points and five assists, but it was Adrian Celada’s hot shooting down the stretch that lifted Mighty Sports past the Founders Cup champions.

Celada knocked in 15 points, including three triples that was part of a 12-0 run in the final period, where Mighty outscored Jumbo, 28-8, to wipe out a  14-point deficit in the third period.

“He (Celada) was hot, so his teammates were making a conscious effort to get him the ball,” said Mighty Sports coach Mike Fermin.
