MANILA--A power interruption placed the Wednesday Pilipinas VisMin Super Cup game between Lapu-Lapu and Siquijor on hold.

The Heroes were leading the Mystics, 27-13, at halftime when the brownout hit the Alcantara Civic Center.

"We had a power interruption here in Alcantara. Although we have a generator, it could not sustain our internet which has forced us to postpone the game," said Rocky Chan, the league's chief operating officer.

After a meeting with Coaches Francis Auquico (Lapu-Lapu) and Joel Palapal (Siquijor), they agreed to have the game re-played in the final day of the elimination round.

The development will strike out the Heroes' initial dominance in which they held the Mystics to only five points in the first quarter.

Siquijor, despite still struggling in the second quarter, somehow got back at Lapu-Lapu by holding them to only four markers before halftime.

The other two games in the triple-header, the Tubigon-Mandaue and the Dumaguete-Talisay matches, will push through once the power goes back.
