The Toyota Ol'Aces I bagged another victory in the 2004 BANMI Budweiser Cup last Wednesday night at the Gilbert C. Ada Gymnasium, extending their win streak to nine games and keeping their perfect record intact.
This time, the victims were the cagers of sister-team Ol'Aces II, who fought hard only to falter in overtime. The Ol'Aces I nailed clutch shots in the closing seconds of the extra period and left with a thrilling 122-119 victory.
The Ol'Aces II played with confidence in the first quarter and took advantage of their short-handed opponents, who only had seven cagers suit up in the early goings. With that, the Ol'Aces II managed to play toe-to-toe with their opponents and ended the first quarter even at 22 points apiece.
The Ol'Aces I then turned it up a notch and lambasted the younger sister team in the second period, going off for 32 points, while allowing just 18 for a comfortable 54-40 halftime lead. Shooter Junior Renguul was hot from the field as he poured in 10 points to spearhead the attack.
The Ol'Aces I bench began to fill up as several cagers made an entrance, but the Ol'Aces II cut the lead to 9 points as the match headed into the final period, 70-79, then put up a nifty charge that enabled them to close the gap with time running down in regulation.
The team eventually tasted the lead for a while, but was endangered when the Ol'Aces I came back and regained favor. Guard Dave Palacios, however, nailed a desperation shot from beyond the arc with 2.6 seconds left to knot the score at 106 apiece, forcing overtime.
The Ol'Aces II drew first blood in the OT, but the experience and caliber of the Ol'Aces I proved to be lethal as they managed to grab the upper hand and ice the victory.
Romeo Iginoef led the Ol'Aces I with a game-high 24 points, while Peter Camacho and Renguul finished with 22 and 20 points. Veteran forward Edsel Mendoza and Mel Tagabuel supported with 15 and 11 points, respectively.
Ambrose Ogumoro led the Ol'Aces II with 22 points, while Palacios and Mike Olaitiman added 21 and 20 points. James Lee also racked up 12 points.

Earlier, the San Vicente Sunrisers dictated the tempo of the game to their satisfaction and trounced Lebwel, 90-51.
The Sunrisers had everything going their way, starting things off with a 22-10 run in the opening period for an early double-digit advantage.
Things continued to get better as the San Vicente cagers continued to widen their lead in the second stanza, courtesy of an intensified defense that held their opponents to a measly 6 points. Mark Wallace fired up 8 points in the process, and led the Sunrisers to a commanding 27-point halftime spread, 43-16.
Lebwel continued to struggle offensively as the second half got underway. This time, the cast managed to add 13 points to their corner, 9 coming courtesy of three triples by Taula Peter, but it didn't do any good as the Sunrisers lit up the scoreboard for 25 points for a 68-29 lead.
Lebwel would finally break the ice in the final 10 minutes, combining for 21 points, but the effort came a little too late as the Sunrisers still held on for the win.
Wallace topped all scorers with 28 points, while Jawn Joyner and Jeff Quitugua sizzled for 16 and 9 points for the Sunrisers.
Peter paced Lebwel with 21 point, while Randy Pelisamen and Pat Pua contributed 13 and 9 points.
