VISITING Green CdeO Eagles and Gingoog City Eagles win big in the recent Northern Mindanao Region (NMR-1) Fiesta Invitational Inter-Eagles basketball in Medina, Misamis Oriental.
The Green CdeO Eagles of NMR-1 Governor Anjun “Con-Air” Gomez crushed Medina’s Mc Nec Elite, 112-78. While the Eagles Chapter of Gingoog City outlasted Metro Gingoog Eagles in the opener, 57-50.
Doc Wellbourne Neri was a perfect 6 of 6 from the 3-point arc as Gomez erupted for 22 points from the field to lead the Green CdeO Eagles’ lopsided finish.
Councilor “Pretty Boy” Mercado, meanwhile, guided Gingoog City’s backcourt play like a seasoned pilot to keep at bay their rival neighbor Metro Gingoog in the 40-above basketball showdown on drizzly Saturday afternoon.
“Kuyaw ang pointguard sa Gingoog City (Mercado) kay sa 3-point shootout lang daan, gilupig man atong celebrity (Waway ‘Vin Diesel’ Arocha). Mas exciting unta kon sila atong nadula kay naa pud silay higante (Pontillas),” NMR-1 Governor Gomez said after the double-header matches.
Also fortifying the Green Eagles’ convincing conquest are Kuya Castillo, “Bato” Mercado, Taban, Eduave, Monterona, “Yogi” Hembrador, Remoto, Butron, Salgados and Casiño. (LLS)
