Koror Palau – After winning their first game against the Slashers last Sunday, the Spoilers go up against the Hanpa Cardinals looking for a second straight victory.
They opened the game strong leading 20-10 after the first quarter.
Nonetheless, the Cardinals did not go down that easily.
Using their inside game, the Cardinals were able to cut the lead to 25-23 in second quarter but a strong finish before half time by Spoilers restored their lead to 38-33 at half time.
In the second half, the Hanpa Cardinals continued to lean on their strength and that is to pound it on the inside. Because of their lack a legitimate center, Felix Masaganda fouled out with 7 minutes left in the 3rd quarter and the Spoilers were already in the penalty. A steal and a layup by Quito closed the gap to 54-51.
