The Batangas City Athletics is scheduled for a head-to-head game against the Bacoor City Strikers at 8:30 P.M. on August 20, 2019 live from the Batangas City Coliseum.
The Athletics wanted to start a winning streak while the Strikers wanted to reach its ninth victory when the 2019 MPBL Lakan Cup continues in Batangas.
The Batangas squad has made a victory in its last outing against the Pasig Sta. Lucia Realtors last August 16 at the Pasig Sports Complex.
After its slow start at the first frame of that game, the Athletics bounced back big time, particularly in the fourth quarter. Apart from their offense, they also demonstrated a tight defense where they limit their opponent to score 14 against their 26 points.
Jayson Grimaldo and Lester Alvarez both scored 12 points for Batangas.
For the Bacoor group on the other hand, they needed one more quarter to formally dispatch the Bacolod Master Sardines last August 13 at the STRIKE Gymnasium.
After the fourth quarter rampage of Bacolod where they successfully extended the match to overtime, the Strikers made sure that they were able to silence the visiting team in OT.
Reigning Most Valuable Player Gabriel Banal led Bacoor as he flirted a triple-double performance with his 29 points, 7 rebounds, and 11 assists.
