Team Captain Kerby Raymundo led Purefoods with 15 points but  James Yap was held to only 7 points, while playing with a sore knee. It was a low scoring ballgame but Purefoods had a balanced scoring with Paul Artadi and Roger Yap, contributing 10 points each while Peter June Simon and Marc Pingris both scored 9 points.
