NM Retanal finished second with 8.0 points as well, but NM Enriquez was named the champion based on their total tie-break points. Cabibil rounded off the top three in the category with 6.0 points. 

Meanwhile, Leo Lofranco, Cepca’s woodpushing doctor, topped the Prexy Jerry 821 Arena by scoring a total of 28 points.
