Pasay Voyagers to tackle Marikina Shoemasters
The Pasay Voyagers resume their journey toward the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League Lakan Season playoffs on Monday (Oct. 14) when they tackle the Marikina Shoemasters at Imus Sports Complex.
Back in orbit following a 92-89 victory over the Quezon City Capitals on Oct. 3, the Voyagers have won eight of their last nine games and should be able to hurdle the Shoemasters in their 4 pm. encounter
Board crasher Dhon Reverente, Axel Inigo, Jaypee Belencion and Raymund Ilagan are again expected to play pivotal roles for the Voyagers, who tote an 11-6 record as against the Shoemasters’ 3-12 slate, this despite winning their last two games.
If the Voyagers prevail, they will put more pressure on the Pasig-Sta. Lucia Realtors, who are at 11-5, in the chase for the top four spots and the corresponding home court edge in the North pl
Other games pit the Navotas Clutch versus the Capitals at 6:30 p.m. and the Bulacan Kuyas versus the Imus-Khaleb Shawarma Bandera at 8:30 p.m.
The Clutch halted a three-game skid with a 72-57 beating of the Mindoro Tamaraws on Oct. 3, but will be the underdogs against the Capitals, who are at 7-10.
Though the Kuyas (9-7) have dropped their last two games, they remain the favorites over the Bandera (4-10), who enjoy a solid fan base with former PBA MVP Jayjay Helterbrand and actor Gerald Anderson in their roster.
