The defense, persistence and the awesome goal keeping of the Airforce made them the Champion..Well deserved indeed!
Reminds me of the time Benjie Paras won the MVP award when the fil-foreigners were getting a hold of the PBA back then..The locals won't back down anytime..Filipino pride!!!
Yup. That's exactly the case.
Shell oldies vs Tanduay youngsters...
Benjie Paras reminded the Tanduay youngsters that he was the ONLY ROOKIE MVP of the PBA, and got that MVP award again against the youngsters who were hoping to get that award.
Meralco Sparks was filled with youngsters and Foreign-born Filipinos (I would try to refrain from using the word "Fil-Foreign")
Philippine AirForce was filled with 10+ year veterans... and the "very young" Yanti Barsales, who just retired from the Azkals, scored that amazing second goal to end the hopes of the youngsters.
They may be old... but they are still the Champs!
They now have a League Trophy and a Cup Trophy... Hope this team can still win more championships
