Royal Star Trading faced AACI Trading in the Fil-Sino Class C, 2nd Conference finals. Arvin Gustilo took control to start the game, scoring 13 points as Royal Star Trading built an early 10 point lead to end the first quarter, 20-10. The second quarter featured the battle of the physicians, as doctors Judah Gozar and Emil Guanzon went toe to toe, scoring 10 and 11 points, respectively, as the lead was cut to six going into the halftime.

The Royals came out stronger in the third, outscoring the AACI, 23-17, extending their lead to double digits, 55-43.  The final quarter would have been the likeliest time for AACI to experience a resurgence, but Royal Star Trading executed at both ends of the floor to claim their championship victory with a final score of 71-58.

Arvin Gustilo led Royal Star Trading with 17 points and took player of the game honors.  Doc Judah Gozar followed up with 15 points and Mark Yee totaled 10.  Meanwhile, Doc Emil Guanzon paced AACI Trading with 14 points, followed by Marc Choa and Alton Muyco who notched 9 points each.

Basecom team*

In the other championship game, it was Basecom going toe to toe with JSY Transport.  The game got out to a competitive start and Basecom led by four points after the first quarter 22-18. JSY Transport picked up their pace in the second where they pushed ahead to erect a three-point advantage by halftime 46-43.

Third quarter was the game changer for a much faster Basecom, as they outscored the JSY Transport 35-13, taking a formidable lead of 19 points going into the final frame.  JSY Transport put up a gallant fight back but they were unable to outrun the score, and accepted defeat with a few seconds remaining as Basecom emerged triumphant, 90-80.

Matt Deles and Carlo Chu shared the player of game honors for Basecom with 13 points each, while Tata Javillo and Ben Buñol delivered 10 points apiece. Andrei Enad logged 16 points for JSY Transport, Kim Dimaranan scored 13 and Charles Macariola, 11.*
