TNT defeats Purefoods to claim title in PBA Third Conference Leg 3

Cebu Sun.Star - Tue, 2022-06-07 16:38
Almond Vosotros capped off his incredible scoring performance in the PBA 3x3 Third Conference Leg 3 playoffs with a title after he led the TNT Tropang Giga to a 21-13 win over Purefoods in the finals on Tuesday at the Robinsons Magnolia.

The veteran TNT guard finished with a game-high 12 points as he almost outscored the entire Titans team during the finals by himself en route to giving the Tropang Giga their second leg title.

Vosotros was on fire the entire playoffs and averaged 11.6 points as the Tropang Giga eliminated Sista in the quarterfinals, 21-16, ousted Leg 2 champion Meralco in the semis, 18-14, before proceeding to dominate Purefoods in the championship game to win the P100,000 top purse.

The playmaker out of La Salle also got plenty of help from Gryann Mendoza, who added six points and eight rebounds. Lervin Flores and Ping Exciminiano round out the scoring for the Tropang Giga.

The Titans were in their first finals appearance since winning Leg 4 of the First Conference, but fell short against TNT as top gun Joseph Eriobu was held to just four points on 3-of-11 shooting from the floor.

On the way to the championship round, Purefoods ousted Limitless App in the quarterfinals, 21-19, and slammed the door on Platinum Karaoke, 18-16, in the semis.

The runner-up finish was worth P50,000 for the Titans, who got seven rebounds from new acquisition Marvin Hayes.

Platinum Karaoke earned a podium finish by bagging third place following a 14-12 win over Meralco earlier.

Yutien Andrada finished with seven points for Platinum Karaoke, which bagged P30,000.

CARCAR City's number two most wanted person fell into the hands of the authorities on Sunday at 5:30 p.m., June 5, 2022.

Bryan Tabora Santillan, also known as James Ryan, 31, of Sitio Bonbon, Barangay Ocaña, Carcar City, was attending a fiesta celebration at the house of his relative on P. Burgos Street, Barangay Poblacion 2, when he was accosted and brought to the police station.

Santillan resisted at first causing a commotion but was overpowered by the arresting officers.

"Nipauli ni siya kay namista taga diha iyang kapuyo, enjoy sa pagpangumbira oi! tagay as-in enjoy kaayo, wala siya magdahom nga dunay maka-ila, namay-ungan sa atong tawo hinungdan nga napusasan (He went home to attend a fiesta celebration as his live-in partner was living there, enjoying the food and drinks, without expecting that somebody would recognize him, leading to his arrest)," Cabagnot said.

Lieutenant Colonel Ardioleto Cabagnot, chief of the Carcar City Police Station, told SunStar Cebu that the suspect has been hiding in Negros Island since after he stabbed dead his neighbor in 2017.

Cabagnot said the suspect was arrested by virtue of the warrant of arrest issued by Judge Joy Redoble of Carcar City RTC7 Branch 77 dated September 26, 2019, with no bail recommended for his temporary liberty.

It was learned that Santillan got angry at the victim, who was also his friend, when the latter accused Santillan's brother-in-law of stealing his rooster.

The victim also told Santillan to tell his brother-in-law to return the rooster that he stole.

While the victim was riding a motorcycle towards Ocaña public market, Santillan asked him to pull over and borrow P20 from him.

As he was about to give the money to Santillan after getting it from his pocket, the suspect stabbed him several times, resulting in his death.

Santillan immediately fled to Negros island along with his live-in partner. (GPL, TPT)
