Come from behind win by Purefoods

Peter June Simon’s clutch plays helped Purefoods TJ Giants win its fourth game in 7 tries vs. Burger King Whoppers. Purefoods Import Thorpe scored 28 points and Kerby Raymundo led all locals with 20 points.

Rommel Adducul and Topex Robinson also played key roles in Purefoods comeback, from an 11 point deficit, the tenacious defense of the two paved way for Purefoods to capture the lead in the fourth quarter.

Although Thorpe had a nice game, it maybe his last game since old Import Marquin Chandler may arrive anytime as his replacement. But Coach Ryan Gregorio said as long as Purefoods keeps winning with Thorpe, he will stay with the team.
