CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Eagles outlasted the Wolves, 66-61, to nab their first win in the Elite Basketball Club Cebu City—Season 14 last Friday, March 8, 2019, at the Visayan Glass Gym in Guadalupe.

It was a nip-and-tuck contest that was decided in the final minute when former University of the Visayas Green Lancer great Randy dela Pisa capped off his 22-point night with two free-throws that put the Wolves out of their misery.

JL Manila also helped the Eagles soar with his 20 points.

The Eagles and the Wolves each tote 1-1 win-loss cards.

In the other game, the Cheetahs got their second straight win with a 107-73 rout of the Stallions. Wide-bodied forward Vernon Anfone dominated the shaded lane and fired in 24 points to lead six different players in double-figures including former Cesafi Mythical Five forward, Jerome Napao, who scored 11 markers.

The Stallions dropped to 0-2 in this tournament.
