And Kirk Collier’s squad completed a perfect six-game championship run with a thrilling 19-17 overtime victory over championship rival San Miguel Beer.

In Ginebra’s season-opening victory, Gumaru scored a team-high eight points, including the game-winning two-pointer from the corner in overtime.

Gumaru made a total of three two-point shots, which were supplemented by Kim Aurin’s 5 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists, Ralph Cu’s 4 points and 3 steals, and Ralph Salcedo’s 2 points in the decisive game.

The four, who prepared for the half-court competition by participating in the PBA on Tour, won gold for the second time after Ginebra’s breakthrough victory in Leg 3 of Season 2 Third Conference.

Brgy. Ginebra, the Pool C leader with a 3-0 record, advanced to the championship game by defeating Pioneer Elastoseal (19-16) and Terrafirma (17-17) in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.
