The Naki Warriors also lost to the Zamboanga Sultans, 8.5-12.5, in their other match, to drop to eighth from seventh in the South division team standings with an 8-9 record.

Meanwhile, the Toledo City Trojans split their two matches on Wednesday with a win against the Mindoro Tamaraws and a loss to the Palawan Queen’s Gambit.
