METRO Manila  Development Authority made it three wins in a row by beating  Pasay, 62-56, even as Paranaque and Makati also made their presence felt with 2-0 records in the  2018  Metro Manila  Sportsfest basketball  tournament  at the Hagonoy gym in Taguig.

Jhon Ashly Andres scored 26 points on 10-of-22 shooting, and Dan Natividad added 13 points for MMDA, which also won over SanJuan, 59-55, last April 15, and Pateros, 90-82, in overtime last April 19.

The Black Wolves controlled the tempo of the game and led 21-12 and 38-26 after two periods before coasting along to victory.

Pasay dropped to 0-3.

Paranaque routed San Juan, 78-64, and Makati clobbered Las Pinas, 66-56, to share second to third place with two straight victories in this prestigious event, which has Mobile App  ng  Bayan Barangay 143 and Synergy 88 as  major sponsors and Spalding as the official ball.

Taguig outsteadied Pateros, 53-47 in a low-scoring, defense oriented game to barge into the win column after losing its opening-day assignment.

In girls’ 16-and-under volleyball, Caloocan and Taguig both notched their first victories after losing their tournament debuts with the Lady Supremos sweeping San Juan (0-2) in the North Division 25-19, 25-16 and 25-21 while the Lady Generals came from behind to beat Pasay (0-2) in a South Division five-set thriller 25-22, 17-25, 14-25, 25-17, 16-14.

In women’s 24-and-under volleyball, Caloocan and Quezon City shared the lead after winning for the second time in as many games. The Lady Supremos won by default over Taguig (0-2) which showed up with just five players while the Lady Stars swept San Juan (1-2) 25-21, 25-20 and 25-20.

Malabon also made its 24-and-under women’s volleyball debut with a smashing five-set win over Parañaque 25-21, 23-25, 19-25, 25-20, 15-11.

These basketball and volleyball tournaments for the youth are being organized by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), headed by chairman Danny Lim  and general manager Jojo Garcia, as part of President Duterte’s campaign to promote a healthy lifestyle thru sports.
