    With Ralph Lansang, Desiderio Ayson, Ed Rivera and Arturo Atablanco hitting their targets, the DENR Warriors steadily pulled away from a 50-all count and won pulling away for its third straight win in as many outings.

    Lansang expectedly led the Warriors with 18 points, Ayson and Rivera added 17 and 16 points, respectively, while Melvin Bangal chipped in 14, the bulk coming in a mighty fourth quarter onslaught that saw them outscore the Magis 36-15.
