Blazquez scored nine points, Tumalip added six and Andrada added four. Hamadou Laminou led Pasig-Banh Mi with five points, Louie Vigil made four, and Jean-Rony Cadot and Chris Dechavez each put up three. Manila Chooks bested Makati, 21-15, for third place. Meanwhile, China's Wuxi beat Pasig-TNT, 21-17, at the Quebec Challenger in Canada early Sunday, denying a second Philippine slot in the Cebu Masters slated Sept. 23 and 24.
