670 Akkeri earns fourth straight victory


The 670 Akkeri is on a roll as it notched its fourth win in a row after topping the Ol’Aces Extra, 89-75, last Friday at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium.

The 670 Akkeri banked on a strong start to take control of the match en route to posting a double-digit winning margin.

Prince Factor led the 670 Akkeri’s early run, as he scored 11 points in the first quarter, which ended with his team ahead by 15, 31-16. Factor drew a lot of help from his teammates, as Edgar Pangelinan, Ben Lisua, and Don Teregeyo knocked in at least two field goals apiece in the 670 Akkeri’s first-period uprising. Three other 670 Akkeri players also hit the board in the opening 10 minutes of play.

The Ol’Aces Extra, behind Leroy Rangamar, tried to mount a comeback in the ensuing quarters, but could not overhaul the deficit, as Factor continued to find his mark and get support from his teammates.

Factor had a team-high 27 points, while Fred Litulumar also finished in twin digits with 12, making 6 of them in the final canto to keep the 670 Akkeri’s safe distance. Kyle Rios, Teregeyo, and Pangelinan chipped in 10 markers apiece to provide balance in the winning team’s offense.

Rangamar carried the heaviest load for the Ol’Aces Extra, as he exploded for 41 points and buried eight triples—three straight to close out the scoring for his squad. Santos was the only other Ol’Aces Extra player to earn double figures after making 11.

Meanwhile, the 670 Sonics are still unbeaten after winning via forfeit against the Saints.
