San Miguel def Terrafirma, 110-91 [QF Game 2 | PBA S48 PH Cup | May 15, 2024]

Terrafirma has certainly exceeded expectations by securing their first-ever playoffs win, especially against the formidable San Miguel team.

Now, the Dyip are aiming to reach even greater heights by outperforming the Beermen in the upcoming deciding game of their PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals clash at the Ninoy Aquino Stadium.

“Tingin ko preparado naman kami, pero siyempre kailangan talagang ready kami dahil San Miguel iyan,” said Terrafirma coach Johnedel Cardel.

“Pero ang sabi ko nga, nagawa na natin na talunin sila so kailangan lang higitan pa ang effort na ginawa namin sa Game 1 and, who knows? Baka maka-silat ulit,” he added.

Despite being the eighth seed, Terrafirma showcased a remarkable performance last Saturday, pulling off a remarkable 106-95 victory over the top-ranked and twice-to-beat Beermen.

It was a historic win for the franchise, marking their first post-eliminations victory.

Coach Cardel and his team wasted no time in analyzing game footage to identify areas for improvement and anticipate the Beermen’s strategy for the next game.

The key to success for Terrafirma will be maintaining their solid gameplay and staying true to their fundamental strategies, as emphasized by Holt in team practices and meetings.

As the focus of San Miguel’s defense, Go’s outstanding performance with 22 points, including six three-pointers, alongside Tiongson’s game-high 29 points and Holt’s 25 points, will be crucial in the upcoming game.

Terrafirma is determined to stay consistent and execute their game plan effectively to secure another victory against the defending champions.
