Western Union started the game out strong going on a 5-0 run in the opening minutes but it was short lived.
Michael Bombita went on a personal 7-0 run to put the Spoilers on top 7-5, a lead that his team would never relinquished.
Spoilers’ big man Mark Pagayanan was on early foul trouble but once the Spoilers pushed the button, Western Union didn’t know what hit them and found themselves trailing 36-21 after the first quarter.
In the second quarter, the Spoilers continued to step on the gas and broke the game wide open behind the scoring trio of Bombita, Aries Echanova and Coco Gonzales.
Team Spoilers held a 64-37 lead at half time off a last second put back by Joel Nacionales causing some fans to leave the gym sensing that the game might end up with another blowout victory by the Spoliers.
