Petron blaze boosters on fire after defeating Shopinas.com Clicker.
The boosters win their third straight game in a row.
It was the Spiderman, Arwind Santos who took the charge for the Boosters. Before the game Coach Ato Agustin of Petron blaze boosters told Santos to play hard.
“Ang sabi ko sa kanya, ‘Just continue playing hard, pero di dapat mag-relax,’”
said Coach Ato. “Kasi kapag naging relaxed ang laro ng isang player at tulad niyang talon ng talon mas
malamang na mag-suffer naman ng groin injury.”
Arwin Santos scored 16 points and pulled down 21 rebounds. While teammates Denok Miranda scored a team-high 18 points, Chris Lutz added 17 and Joseph Yeo 12. Alex Cabagnot also chipped in 9 points and dish out several assists.
Arwind Santos’ rebounds were the most by a local player since the 27 rebounds recorded by himself too last June 24 in a losing effort to Rain or Shine. This was Santos seventh straight double-double performance.
Santos really stepped up in the absence of big man team mates, Rabeh Al-Hussaini, Jay Washington and wing men Lordy Tugade and Dondon Hontiveros.
Shopinas suffered its third straight loss. Though Jojo Duncil scored a new career-high 22 points, it was not enough to defeat Petron.
