Despite trailing most in the fourth canto due to team foul trouble, Enzo Nitorreda’s wards came up big in the final ticks when they trail, 67-69. Quidlat’s coast-to-coast lay-up as time expired sent the match-up to the overtime period at 69-all as DMMA failed to make “duty” foul with them only having two team fouls in the final quarter.
