Head coach Romeo Lagmay, Jr. was very happy about the team’s overall performance, “I thought the team did well in holding their composure when Rocky made a run in the 2nd and 4th quarters. We can clearly see a few of our players starting to have more confidence and understand their individual roles for the overall good of the team success.”
