We were up, we were down. But everybody stepped up. It’s really the trust and confidence in our system,” said Red Lions head coach Teodorico Fernandez III.It was a see-saw battle from the start until La Salle pulled a 49-42 lead in the third frame. But San Beda went on a run behind Doliguez and Kemark Carino to snatch the lead 62-59 early in the final frame.San Beda were still ahead 69-65 when La Salle went on a 7-0 rally behind Santillan and Aljun Melecio to take the lead 72-69. Back-to-back triples by Soberano and Bolick swung the lead to Red Lions for good.Tournament MVP Benoit Mbala finished with 25 points, 14 rebounds, and four blocks, while Melecio added 14 markers for La Salle./PN[/av_textblock][/av_one_full] [av_one_full first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=”][av_heading heading=’Beda frustrates La Salle, takes Fil-Oil caging title ‘ tag=’h3′ style=’blockquote modern-quote’ size=” subheading_active=’subheading_below’ subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ color=” custom_font=”]BY ADRIAN STEWART CO[/av_heading][av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]Tuesday, June 27, 2017[/av_textblock][av_image src=’http://www.panaynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/sports-beda-fil-oil.jpg’ attachment=’109960′ attachment_size=’full’ align=’center’ styling=” hover=” link=” target=” caption=’yes’ font_size=” appearance=’on-hover’ overlay_opacity=’0.4′ overlay_color=’#000000′ overlay_text_color=’#ffffff’ animation=’no-animation’]Robert Bolick gets cheered on by teammates and fans during the 2017 Fil-Oil Flying V Premier Cup finals on Sunday night, June 25 when he scored 3 in the dying seconds to help San Beda Red Lions defeat De La Salle University Green Archers.
