Roque erupts as Perpetual downs JRU

Roque, who finished with 17 points, hit four three-pointers to lead a second half onslaught that gave the Altas a comfortable 65-43 which they managed to protect despite the last-ditch effort from the Heavy Bombers.

Perpetual tallied its fifth win against seven losses to sit at seventh place.

Christian Pagaran provided support with 15 points on a 3-of-5 shooting from deep, while team captain Jielo Razon and John Abis had eight and seven points, respectively.

Perpetual’s win served as a redemption as well for its first round loss to JRU, 71-65.

It was also a fitting reward for Perpetual’s proud alumnus Scottie Thompson, who now serves as the team’s assistant coach and was in attendance against JRU.

Joshua Guiab was the lone double-digit scorer for JRU with 10 points. The Bombers dropped to 8-5.
