VisMin Super Cup: Mandaue routs Bohol, ‘power interruption’ halts first game
MANILA, Philippines — A power interruption halted the game between ARQ Builders-Lapu-Lapu City and Siquijor in the 2021 Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup on Wednesday at Civic Center in Alcantara, Cebu, according to the league.
Lapu-Lapu City, which is eyeing its third win in as many stints, took a 27-13 halftime lead when the power went out.
“We had a power interruption here in Alcantara. Though we have a generator, it could not sustain our internet which has forced us to postpone the game,” said Chief Operating Officer Rocky Chan in a press release.
The game, which will be restarted on the final day of the elimination round, had already been stopped once after the power cut off at the midway point of the second period.
Meanwhile, KCS Computer Specialist-Mandaue City hammered out a 97-71 win over Tubigon Bohol.
Mandaue City went on a blistering 27-11 run in the fourth quarter to blow the game wide open and notch its second victory in three tries.
Shaquille Imperial teamed up with Steve Castro, Jonel Bonganciso, and Red Cachuela during the crucial stretch.
Imperial, a former MVP of the CESAFI, had his best game as a pro, scoring 17 points that went with four rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.
“The second group and third group stepped up tonight,” said Mandaue City head coach Mike Reyes. “Ping (Exciminiano) and (Al Francis) Tamsi got injured. They started their work on defense and the offense came around.”
