The Tal­isay City Aqua Stars proved too much for the San Fernando Spar­tans in their 7648 tri­umph in the South Divi­sion Bracket 1 at the Tal­isay City Sports and Cul­tural Cen­ter, while Car­men chalked its own lop­sided win by trash­ing So­god, 99-78, in the North Divi­sion Bracket at the Car­men Mu­nic­i­pal Gym­na­sium.

Ac­tion con­tin­ues to­day in sep­a­rate venues.

In the North du­els, Madride­jos bat­tles Ban­tayan at the Madredi­jos Mu­nic­i­pal Gym in the main game. Kick­ing off to­day's sched­ule is the show­down be­tween Sta. Fe and San Re­me­gio at 5 p.m., fol­lowed by the en- counter be­tween Bogo City and Medellin.

In the South Divi­sion, host team Sam­boan guns for a sec­ond straight win against Gi­nati­lan in the 8 p.m. main game. Be­fore that, San­tander takes on Dalaguete at 5 p.m., while Al­coy clashes with Boljoon at 6:30 p.m.

Tal­isay was in con­trol in the en­tire match that saw them lead­ing by as many as 30 points in the third pe­riod.

For the in­frac­tion, Alferez will be slapped with a one-game sus­pen­sion and will sit out San Fernando's next game ver­sus Si­bonga on Sun­day at the Minglanilla Sports Com­plex.
