Go, CMO down RMG in Game 1 of Inday Sara AFP-PNP Finals

Go, CMO down RMG in Game 1 of Inday Sara AFP-PNP Finals

Christopher “Bong” Go made four triples in the third period to propel the City Mayor’s Office to a 97 – 87 Game 1 victory over the Regional Mobile Group in their best of three final series in the Inday Sara AFP-PNP – 24th Kadayawan Invitational Cup, Sunday night, at the Davao City Recreation Center.

The sweet-shooting executive assistant of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte proved too dominant for CMO as he finished the game with 39 points, accounting seven baskets from behind.

He scored 16 of the CMO’s 25 points output in the pivotal third canto as the Mayor’s men moved within a win of capturing the title.

From excellent long distance shooting to superb running jumpers, Go almost single-handidly pushed RMG to the brink of losing the series.

Roy Bangkas and Dioven Braga helped the cause for CMO as they chipped in 12 points respectively. But it was the defensive efforts of the two versatile guards mattered most down the stretch.

CMO established a 69 – 54 advantage, entering the final period but they appeared complacent that was maximized by RMG which had a hard time to keep pace with the Mayor’s men.

The Camp Catitipan-based unit slowly closing the gap behind Vicente Reyes, Edwin Awitin and Carlos Salinas who managed to cut the deficit to seven, 80 – 89, the closest they get from a lead that reached to 18.

But CMO bounced back with 5 – 0 run capped with a Dindo Pastor three point play to put RMG at bay.

Reyes, coming off from a one game suspension, had 18 markers for RMG which also drew a 16 points output from Edwin Awitin.

CMO was up by 2, 22 – 20 at the end of the opening canto and balloned the lead to 12, 44 – 32 at the half.

The City Mayor’s Office and Regional Mobile Group begin their best of three title showdown on Sunday (August 30) in the Inday Sara AFP-PNP – 24TH Kadayawan Invitational Cup at the Davao City Recreation Center (Almendras Gym).

Game time is set at 5 p.m.

CMO and RMG are expected not to leave any stone unturned to take the crucial Game 1 as it could set the tone in a short championship series this way.

The Mayor’s men, who ended the preliminary round undefeated and went on to clobber PNP-Special Action Force in the semis to make it to the finals, is touted as the favorite in the much-awaited title match..

But the surging RMG, which upset Regional Headquarters in the Final four, is expected to provide a formidable challenge and withstand a gallant stand against CMO.

Edwin Awitin, who drilled in a baseline jumper to lift RMG past RHQ in the do or die second game of the latter’s twice to beat privilege last Thursday, gears up to carry again the load for his squad.

Leading the charge for CMO are Christopher “Bong” Go, Roy Bangkas, Dioven Braga and Dindo Pastor.

It was Reyes’s first major title in almost three years, and it proved that at age 55, the man regarded as the all-time best billiards player in the planet remains a force to reckon with in the sport.

“Masayang-masaya ako at sa wakas nakuha ko rin itong Villar Cup, at iniaalay ko itong tagumpay kong it okay Senator Manny Villar bilang pasasalamat sa kanyang walang sawang pagtulong sa bilyar,” said Reyes, who competed in all the previous legs of this prestigious island-hopping series presented by Senator Villar’s Villards: Tulong sa Pagsulong ng Philippine Sports.

Playing in his first Villar Cup finals match for the first time since losing to Warren Kiamco in the series’ inaugural leg in Alabang last May 2008, Reyes had a so-so start, committing a couple of miscues that allowed Gallego to race to a 5-2 lead.

But not wanting to disappoint the close to 3,000 fans obviously rooting for him, Reyes returned from a brief break with the touch that brought him countless honors, and he methodically crawled back in contention.

He also got a huge break when Gallego, a four-time Villar Cup finalist and the Bulacan leg champion, scratched on his shot at the money-ball in the 11th rack, which gave Reyes his first lead at 6-5.

That proved to be the turning point of the match, as Reyes pocketed all the next five racks to wrap up the victory and celebrate his first championship since ruling the Derby City Classic in Louisville, Kentucky in January 2007.

“Nawa’y makapagbigay ng inspirasyon ang pagkapanalo kong ito sa lahat ng mga bilyaristang nagnanais sumunod sa aming yapak at maging daan ito sa pagsuporta ng buong sa mga susunod naming kampanya, lalo na sa darating na Southeast Asian Games,” said Reyes.

No less than Senator Villar awarded the coveted trophy and the P300,000 top prize at stake in this three-day tournament sponsored by Camella Communities.

Gallego settled for the runner-up honor and P120,000 cash prize

“This victory of Champ (Reyes) is a big boost in our preparation for the SEA Games, and we at the BMPAP congratulate him for his feat,” said Billiards Managers and Players Association of the Philippines president Atty. Vic Rodriguez.

Reyes said his victory was a product of hard work and perseverance, which he wants all his fellow billiards players, particularly the young ones, to emulate.

“Sa lahat ng laban ko dito sa Villar Cup at sa lahat ng tournament, maliit man o malaki, lagi kong binibigay ‘yung 100% ko at kahit natatalo ako, hindi ako sumusuko,” he said. (pr)


‘Bata’ makes Villar Cup Kadayawan leg finals

DAVAO CITY – Efren “Bata” Reyes had to dig deep into his well-full of tricks to dodge the upset axe of Jomar de Ocampo and score a hard-earned 10-7 victory that catapulted the pool icon to the finals of The Manny Villar Cup Kadayawan Leg, Sunday, at the jampacked activity area of NCCC Mall here.

The win advanced the 55-year-old Magician into a match against former leg winner Ramil Gallego for the coveted title and the P300,000 top prize at stake in this prestigious island-hopping series presented by Senator Manny Villar’s Villards: Tulong sa Pagsulong ng Philippine Sports. Gallego, the Villar Cup Bulacan leg titlist, subdued Cebu leg champion and top local bet Gandy Valle, 10-4, in the first semifinals match.

“Ang hirap talagang manalo dito sa Villar Cup, lahat kasi ng kasali magagaling at lalo ‘yung mga bata na kagaya ni Jomar na lalo pang gumagaling dahil sa tuluy-tuloy na pa-tournament ni Senador Manny,” said Reyes, who also made it into the finals of the Camella Communities-sponsored series’ inaugural leg in May 2008 in StarMall in Alabang, where he lost to Warren Kiamco.

Indeed it was a very tough win for Reyes as De Ocampo came out with his A-game and didn’t succumb to the pressure of playing against the man regarded as the best cue artist in the world and the huge Davaoeno crowd obviously rooting for the pool icon. De Ocampo, a 20-year-old pride of Alaminos, Pangasinan, won the lag, but it was Reyes who took the first two racks, before the latter evened the score at 2-2.

Reyes pocketed two straight frames to retake the lead, but De Ocampo kept himself within striking distance until the former utilized his vast experience to the hilt and held on. “Hindi ako magugulat kung balang araw magiging champion din ‘yang batang ‘yan. Basta kailangan lang n’yang magsipag at tyaga, gaya nga ng sinasabi ni Senador Manny,” said Reyes of De Ocampo, who made it to the Final Four by upending former leg winners Lee Van Corteza (9-5) and Francisco “Django” Bustamante (9-7) in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively. Before beating De Ocampo, Reyes won over Carlo Biado (9-8) and Mike Takayama (9-3).

Gallego, meanwhile, made it to the semis after defeating former world champion Ronnie Alcano (9-6) and Kiamco (9-5), while Valle won against Rene Mar David (9-4) and two-time Villar Cup champion Roberto Gomez (9-6) before bowing out of contention in this three-day event coorganized by the Billiards Managers and Players Association of the Philippines (BMPAP) headed by its president Atty. Vic Rodriguez. The finals match was slated to be played late Sunday, along with the awarding ceremonies to be led by Senator Villar.(pr)
