Griffins Pawn Titans, Grab Nursing Cup Basketball Title

By: Alfred Benedict R. Garrido

February 24, 2011, Perpetual Help Gymnasium- Led by sweet shooting from guard Philip Cyrene Fernandez, the Junior Red Griffins devoured the Senior Green Titans, 66-61, to step on champion’s podium in the basketball leg of the 2010-2011 Nursing Cup.

Fernandez fired 11 points including flares of three consecutive 3-pointers early in the third quarter to spark the cold engines of the Griffins and set up an ambush for the Titan’s trouble. Alongside Fernandez’s free-flowing three’s, the Griffins gained fuel from Ramon Henry Dickson’s superb offense and Miguel Porcuna’s defensive heroics. Dickson nailed 14 points for the Juniors while Porcuna tucked 11 points and monstrous rebounds under his belt.

The green army led by Zaphiel Capuno struck for a final push under the 4 minute mark of the last period, chasing the full speed Griffins and cutting the red-themed jerseys lead to four, 59-55. With star forward Miguel Zamora fouled out with 9 points, Fernandez, Dickson, Porcuna and the rest of the gang built the needed defensive wall making sure the Seniors won’t taste the glory of the champion’s land.
“Every shot we took, either missed or made, is dedicated to all our batch mates who gave utmost support for the team”, Fernandez said. “Each of them is the reason why we became champions.”
