LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Avengers – Isaiah 41:10 cooled down a hot Buguias Team, 87-71, last Friday, June 23, at the La Trinidad Municipal Gym, here, to finish the elimination round with a 6-3 record, tied with Buguias and Kath Kiel at second place and a semifinals berth in Bracket G.
In all likelihood, the Avengers and Buguias will secure a semifinals berth but both will have to face twice to beat disadvantage against top seed Truant and second seed K11.
The final match-ups in the semis will depend on the outcome of the last match of the bracket between K11 and DRJ.
Kath Kiel, who won later that night against Kabado to the tune of 97-74, also finished with a 6-3 record but will fall short in the tie-breaker as it lost all its previous matches against the Avengers, Buguias, and K11.
