PBA: Phoenix takes down Meralco for solo third

Phoenix finally ended a long drought in an import-laden conference against Meralco with a 96-86 victory Friday to move up at solo third in the 2018 PBA Governors’ Cup at the Big Dome. The Fuel Masters kept their fire burning with their second straight win for a 4-1 win-loss record and first victory over the Bolts in a reinforced tournament in six meetings. “Before the game lumapit sa akin si (statistician) Fidel (Mangonon) di pa raw kami nananalo with an import against Meralco. So sinabi ko sa team before the game para added motivation and si Eugene (Phelps) medyo na-inspire,” said Phoenix coach Louie Alas. “Sabi niya, ‘coach I’m not included in that import-laden team because last year I was here but I was injured. I’ll make it sure that we will win today,” Alas added. And win they did. Phelps delivered 24 points and plucked 19 rebounds to lead the Fuel Masters. Calvin Abueva and Matthew Wright added 16 markers each while Jason Perkins has 13 for Phoenix. The Fuel Masters dropped 53 points in the middle quarters to take an 11-point lead heading into the payoff period after trailing 21-22 after the first 12 minutes.

Town learns story of ‘Colorum’ hero

Most residents of this bustling eastern Pangasinan town are familiar about the concrete monument at the center of a road intersection here. They are clueless, however, as to why and how the human figure astride a horse was put up in a public place for everybody to see.   It is the statue of Pedro Calosa, but there is no inscription to explain that he led the Colorum Revolt in 1931, attacking the municipal hall and burning land documents to rally support against American colonial rule.   Councilor Romeo Vidal, 51, only learned about Calosa from his great-grandfather's stories when he was a boy. The man, he was told, fed his carabaos and cows on treetops because h...Keep on reading: Town learns story of ‘Colorum’ hero.....»»
