BATANGAS CITY—Hafer Mondragon was once again the unlikely hero for GenSan as he nailed the marginal basket that would help the team force a Game 3 in its MPBL South Division Semifinals against Batangas City with a 61-55 Game 2 win on Saturday night at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum.

Just when the Embassy Chill were about to complete a comeback at home to seal a date with the Bacoor City Strikers in the South finals, Mondragon hit a clutch three that silenced the full house crowd with 1:07 left as the Warriors retook the lead, 57-55.

That eventually sparked the game-deciding 7-0 run for GenSan to finally pull away from Batangas City.

Enzo Joson led the Warriors in the elimination game with 14 points including a dagger mid-range jumper from the baseline that was also part of their game-ending run.

John Wilson added 10 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block.

Levi Hernandez led the Embassy Chill with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.

The rubber match for the last MPBL national semifinal seat is on Tuesday night back at the Batangas City Sports Coliseum.
