Bohol disposes of Ormoc in just two games of the best-of-three finals to capture the VisMin Super Cup championship

MANILA, Philippines – The CPG Bohol Dolphins captured in the VisMin Super Cup title after surviving OCCCI – Ormoc Sheer Masters with an 84-77 win at the Mayor Vitaliano Agan Coliseum in Zamboanga on Sunday, April 10.

John Orbeta finished with 18 points, while Jhang Bondoc set the tone with 16 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals as the Dolphins swept the best-of-three finals and prevented the Sheer Masters from forging a rubber match.

Finals MVP Nikko Panganiban tallied 12 points in the win that saw Bohol fend off a determined rally from Ormoc, which trailed 11-25 in the second period but managed to stay within striking distance, 65-68, in the final salvo.

The Sheer Masters, however, failed to overcome their deficit as Orbeta ended a scoring drought between the two teams by converting a transition basket and created more separation for the Dolphins.

Bohol also banked on the 16-point, 12-rebound double-double from Landry Sanjo, who came in as a replacement import two before the start of the playoffs.

Pari Llagas finished with 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting as he keyed the Sheer Masters’ second-half comeback.

In the battle for third, the MACFI – Basilan Golden Lions trounced the Zamboanga Valientes, 75-70.

Zamboanga’s Reed Juntilla claimed the Best Player of the Conference award and earned a spot in the Mythical Team.

Joining Juntilla in the Mythical Team were Panganiban, Ormoc’s Gabby Espinas and Paul Sanga, and Basilan’s Shaq Alanes. – Rappler.com
