GlobalPort import Dominique Sutton only scored six points in the first half but already had five assists as Jeric Fortuna, Stanley Pringle and Anthony Semerad helped carry the scoring load for the Batang Pier.
Mahindra managed to stretch their lead to as much as nine in the third quarter but some late triple by GlobalPort’s Karl Dehesa helped them wrest the advantage away. The Enforcer, though, led by one, 70-69, heading into the fourth quarter.
Pringle made some big plays in the fourth, attacking the basket hard in one play and racing down the court after a Mahindra turnover to finish on a fastbreak layup where he was able to draw a deliberate foul on the trailing defender, Revilla.
