Tagbilaran City Science High School Virus

Tagbilaran City Science High School Virus stunned the overconfident Holy Spirit School Crusaders, 65-62 in the main game of a heavy quintuplet bill of the inaugurals of the 15th Bohol Schools Amateur Athletic Association 5th Graham C Lim Basketball Challenge, Saturday at the newly refurbished Bohol Wisdom School gym.

Although the come backing Crusaders were bannered by Josh Dominise, a former mainstay of the University of Perpetual Help of Rizal Daltas, they succumbed to the pressure of the trapping defense put up by the sluggish Virus who were led by lanky slot man Matt Alej Tagaytay, with 18 points, strong boy Allen Joseph Aranzado, 16 and wily point guard Roque Gerry Viel Manug, who contributed 13 point aside from his task of orchestrating their offensive patterns.

The score at halftime was, 35-31 in favour of the Virus.

Coach Carlo Cresencio of the University of Bohol Baby Lemurs needs no much pressure as they clawed the Grace Christian School Eagles, 68-38 in the other game.

Last years' bridal finishers, Baby Lemurs never turned their backs as they continued to fire their artilleries with precise accuracy as the game came to an end. The Eagles were never able to give any opposition as the offensive thrust of the Baby Lemurs went flawless.  

The erratic plays displayed by the Crusaders caused them their defeat as the Virus maintained their lead as the final buzzer sounded to nail the final count at 65-62.

The guest of honour, 1st district Representative Edgardo M. Chatto, who puts sports and youth as one of the priorities in his program of government, was not able to attend the opening ceremonies because of his hectic schedule. He was represented by Anthony Damalerio.

His absence, however, did not mean negative to the BSAAA people as he had pledged financial support in the amount of P10,000 to one of its pillars of the tournament.

Beauteous high school student, Ma. Amy Fiel Boc, the muse of the BIT IC Jr Cruisers, was voted as Miss BSAAA 2009. For the victory she received a trophy donated by City Mayor Dan Neri Lim and P500 cash from Grandmas Purified Drinking Water.
