City Mayors Office made it two wins in row against Philippine National Police Selection with a 100 – 82 decision on Wednesday night in the second game of their Friendly Match at the Davao City Recreation Center Almendras Gym.
CMO started strong and followed through the rest of the game as the City Hall dribblers outplayed the gritty Policemen for the second straight game in a blowout fashion.
Christopher “Bong” Go displayed another quality performance, putting up 39 points with five baskets from behind the arc.
Glenn Escandor and Jaime Cruz had an impressive outing contributing 14 and 13 points respectively for the City Hall dribblers who beat the Policemen twice in three days.
Ariel Bone top scored for the PNP Selection with 19 baskets as Marlon Cabanog had 15.
The Policemen seemed to counter profoundly late in the third period behind their run and gun type of play that did well in the first meeting.
But the City Hall dribblers kept the pressure up and maintained the comfortable lead entering the pay off period.
Ricky Sumagang scored 19 points for the CMO.
In their previous game, CMO rode on a splendid performance of Go to hack out a 79 – 75 victory over PNP Selection.
Go, the sweet-shooting executive assistant of Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, drained seven triples to finish with game high 36 points.
