Globalport Batang Pier held the Barangay Ginebra squad through out the whole game having them play catch up in most part of their showdown in Sunday at the Araneta Coliseum.
Japeth Aguilar led the Barangay Ginebra in trying to get back in the game being the only player to get double figures during the 3rd period but somehow gets some support from their main play maker LA Tenorio who sinked some jumpers and tripples that closed the gap.
Romeo and the rest of the Batang Pier players made it hard for Ginebra to continue their momentum as they outscored Ginebra in the payoff period having Romeo to score 15 points in a single quarter that spoiled the known Ginebra comeback and ended the game with a season high record of 35 points disappointing Aguilar and Tenorio's output at 23points a piece
