ZAMBOABGA Sibugay scored a 72-67 victory over Roxas in the Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup Mindanao Challenge on Thursday at the Pagadian City Gymnasium in Zamboanga del Sur.

Trailing by eight with three minutes left, Jaymar Gimpayan and Marlon Monte went to the line thrice but could only sink two as Anak Mindanao Warrior Lester Reyes converted a putback on the other end for a 71-63 count with just 1:06 remaining.

Monte and Embons Bonleon connected late for Roxas but it was too late, allowing Zamboanga Sibugay to escape with the win.

“I always tell the boys to control the game and be composed all the time,” Warriors head coach Arnold Oliveros said. “We must execute and convert.”

Rhaffy Octobre had a double-double off the bench in just 16 minutes with 16 points and 14 rebounds, eight on the offensive end—two more than the Vanguards’ total. The Warriors got 29 offensive boards, resulting in 19 second-chance points.

Jan Jamon added 10 points while eight other players scored four points or more for the balanced attack of Zamboanga Sibugay.

The win brought Zamboanga Sibugay to 2-2 won-lost for solo fourth spot while Roxas slipped to 1-2 and with Iligan City at fifth spot.

Monte paced the Vanguards anew with 14 points, six rebounds and four assists but he also had five turnovers. Bonleon chipped in 11 points while Gimpayan and Kentoy Segura registered 10 points apiece while debuting James Martinez went scoreless in 13 minutes of action.

Roxas faces Iligan City on Friday at 4 p.m. The Warriors, on the other hand, play Iligan City on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
