Charlie led, 24-19 in the opening quarter behind Coronel Baculi and Dodong Soco but Golf retaliated in the 2nd stanza with a blistering, 17-10 run and grabbed a, 36-34 advantage at the half.

Both protagonists engaged in an air-tight battle the rest of the way that resulted in several deadlocks and lead changes.
