On a calm Sunday afternoon at The Upper Deck gym roared with intensity once again as Dumlao Thursdays – in pursuit of their first victory, registered their first W in dominating fashion against Einz, 75-40.

From start to finish, Dumlao fired and unleashed an onslaught too heavy for their opposition as they utilized all offensive points to make the bleeding hurt. Almost all Dumlao cagers contributed to warm the net but three Dumlao cagers set it afire as they picked up double-digit figures. Louis Ranosa managed the team-high of 16 points in a prolific paint performance of post-up fundamentals and drive-bys that managed him three rebounds while his team mate Jefferson Obico and Raffy Arcilla amassed 12 points each.

Obico’s performance rendered him player of the game recognition as racked up a double-double, adding 11 rebounds to his double-digit figure. Led by the trio’s charge, Einz was hapless on the other end as their antagonists defense intercepted passes to render a fast break possession in the following play.

Chris Obana lifted Einz in the third to halt Dumlao’s acceleration in the scoreboards. Obana pumped in the gas with his sharpshooting to contain Dumlao’s dominance as they are 13-point behind in the third. Obana acquired the team-high of 16 points with six rebounds. The struggle inside proved fatal as Dumlao swarmed the paint for rebounds. Dumlao whipped out 53 team total rebounds whereas Einz gathered 29 team rebounds.

With this fatal flaw realized, Dumlao set their eyes on the prize and at the fourth they teared up holes in their antagonist’s defense and sets loose a wildfire of fast break opportunities, increasing the deficits towards a final score of 70-45.
