Koror, Palau – Riding high on four game winning streak, the Spoilers wasted little time in dispatching the Aloha Maid Choppers.

They started the game out strong, opening the game on a 16-5 run and never looked back.

The Spoilers attack were simply too much for the Choppers as they found themselves playing catchup throughout the game and trailed 58-25 at half time.

Behind the energetic duo of Michael Bombita and Coco Gonzales, the Spoilers made another push at the start of the third quarter that virtually sealed the win.

Bombita provided much of the scoring, while Gonzales made some great defensive plays on the other end upping their lead to 83-47 at the end of the third period.

Still, the Spoilers did not let up.

Out of a timeout early in the fourth quarter, coach Jun Dela Cruz draw a perfect play that is similar to shot-gun position in the NFL as Marvic Ngchar found himself all alone cutting to the basket.
