LAGUNA, Philippines – Soccskargen showed no mercy a they defeated Cagayan Valley (CAVRAA) 97-54 in secondary boys basketball action on Sunday, May 4 at the Laguna Sports Complex Main Gymnasium in Sta. Cruz, Laguna.

The Soccskargen Warriors (as their squad is dubbed) simply exhibited more effort on both ends of the floor, outmuscling their foes on the defensive side while fearlessly cutting to the basket on offense. 

“We’re using our running game plus our designed plays so we won the game,” said Soccskargen coach Richard Endoy. Endoy, who views host squad Calabarzon as their toughest challenge in the bracket, believes he has six future PBA players on his team.

One of them – 16-year-old Jason Briones of Kidapawan City National High School – summarized their victory most succinctly.

“We won because of teamwork,” said Briones.

Earlier in the day, defending Palaro champions Central Visayas dominated CARAGA, 93-49, while Calabarzon defeated Zamboanga Peninsula, 80-56. –
