Mustangs win
13th NOPSSCEA title

USLS Stingers put up a good fight

Down by three points going into the fourth quarter, the West Negros Mustangs kept their composure to wrestle back the lead and turn back the hard-fighting University of St. La Salle Stingers, 71-66, in Game Two of the best-of-three finals, to keep the crown and win their 13th straight NOPSSCEA men’s basketball title at the USLS Coliseum last night.

“It was difficult. Of all the championships, this one was the toughest but I believe in our team and was confident that we will get through,” Mustangs team manager Tony Agustin said after the game.

Coach Troy Sarabia, who won his third championship for the Mustangs since joining the team in 2009, said the Stingers is a very good team but in the end, the breaks of the game went their way.
