QUEZON CITY--Carlo Lastimosa may have outscored Terrence Romeo, but in the end, the latter's club prevailed.

GlobalPort staved off Lastimosa's best game in his young PBA career and pipped Blackwater, 120-105, in their Philippine Cup game at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on Sunday.

Romeo scored 15 of his 26 points in the second half to lead the Batang Pier's pull-away from the Elite, who kept the game tight in the first half behind Lastimosa.

Romeo also tallied five rebounds and an assist, while backcourt partner Stanley Pringle added 17 points, six rebounds, six assists, and one steal.

Lastimosa finished with a career-high 31 points for Blackwater, but was limited to only eight in the final 24 minutes.

Poy Erram had a great game defensively with 13 boards, six blocks, and two steals along with nine markers.
