The winners bracket featured the last four unbeaten teams in the GSPN preseason tournament Wednesday evening with the Okkodo Bulldogs getting a clutch victory over the Sanchez Sharks while the FD Friars stymied St. John’s Knights.

Friars 67, Knights 59

The riled up Friars went down 24-17 in the opening period after hot starts from Knights guard Michael Min and Takumi Simon, but the post game from FD proved too difficult to stop in the second half. Friar De’Aundre Cruz ate up the inside with 20 points and 14 boards.

Knights Takumi Simon went down in the 3rd quarter with cramping issues with his team nursing a 51-45 lead. Friar Mark Temerwoski made his tourney debut and his biggest bucket came four minutes into the final period as he gave his team their first lead since the first minute of the game 57-56. FD controlled the pace and closed out the Knights down the stretch where Cruz scored eight of his 20.

Bulldogs 46, Sharks 42

A rough 3rd quarter for the Sharks, where they only scored four points, allowed the Bulldogs take control of the game in the second half. Wendy’s Player of the Game for the Bulldogs Jonas Oyardo put his stamp on the game in the 4th quarter by scoring the teams first seven points. Oyardo picked off the Sharks at mid-court twice that led to easy layups, only to follow up with a corner three-pointer to extend their lead 39-28 over the Sharks.
