Amesii down Tamaraws to meet Flames in Decider

The Preliminary Final clash of the Premier Men’s Basketball League (PMBL) between the CIVPAC Amesii and the Moni Plus Tamaraws, saw the Amesii pulling off a strong 103-91 victory over the Tamaraws at the Sir John Guise Indoor Complex Stadium yesterday night (September 6th).

Both sides went firing on all cylinders, throwing everything they had in the tank on the floor. With equal ball possession and court territory, the first quarter ended in a tie, leaving the scores at 25 points apiece.

However, the momentum swung in Amesii’s favor in the second quarter. They picked up their rhythm and ascendency in the second quarter, and maintained the pace through the final quarter, defeating the Tamaraws with a 103-91 scoreline to book their maiden grand final berth.

Amesii will meet the KSS Flames in the Premier Men’s Basketball League Grand Final showdown next week Wednesday (September 13th) at the Sir john Guise Indoor Complex Stadium.

In their Major Semi-Final clash last week, Flames defeated Amesii and advanced to the grand final. Flames have remained undefeated in the semi-professional basketball competition, winning 12 straight games with zero losses.

On the contrary, Amesii have registered 10 wins and tasted 2 losses. Surprisingly, their two losses came at the hands of the Flames.

Flames will be looking forwarding to maintaining their winning streak and end the 2023 campaign on a positive note, while Amesii are upbeat to seek redemption and clinch their first title in the competition.

An elated and excited Amesii’s coach, David Peter said he is happy for his team’s victory, but there are a few areas they need to work on to put a strong performance against the Flames in the decider.

“We were fighting for the grand final spot. We knew that Tamaraws were a very strong team so we sat down and did an assessment of ourselves over the last few days, and the result has shown tonight."

"Flames have defeated us twice so we have a score to settle with them. It is not going to be easy to defeat them, but we will fix little areas that need improvement and put a strong performance against the Flames in the grand final next week,” coach David Peter stated.
