Cavitex stuns Sista Super Sealers in opener of PBA 3×3 Lakas ng Tatlo Leg 3

The Cavitex Braves put the entire field of the PBA 3×3 Lakas ng Tatlo on notice as they stunned the reigning Leg 2 champions Sista Super Sealers, 21-15, in the opening game on Saturday at the Ynares Sports Arena.

AC Soberano connived with veteran and Cavitex captain Larry Fonacier in pulling off the win that put the Braves in the early lead on top of Pool A to start Leg 4 at the Ynares Sports Arena.

Soberano finished with eight points, Fonacier added six, while Dominic Fajardo and Efren Reyes combined for seven points for Cavitex which failed to progress in the quarterfinals the previous leg for failing to register a single win.
