Petron Blaze Boosters takes 3-1 lead over semifinal duel against Talk N Text Tropang Texters

Petron Blaze Boosters is now one win away from dethroning the defending champion Talk N Text Tropang Texters. Thanks to a impressive performance from the former two time MVP Danny Ildefonso.

Danny played like the MVP he was years ago, leading the Booster's with 22 points, with most of the points coming from dagger mid range shot in the final quarter.

Petron Blaze Booster again made a miraculous comeback erasing double digit lead from the Tropang Texters to pull off a 85-82 win for a 3-1 lead in their best of seven semifinal series in the 2011-2012 Philippine Cup.

Booster's rookie Chris Lutz contributed with 13 points, including two crucial free throws that gave Petron an 85-82 lead with 9.3 seconds left in the 4th quarter.

The Tropang Texters have two chances to tie the game and send it to overtime but misses from Ranidel de Ocampo and Jimmy Alapag from the three point cost them the game.

Ryan Reyes led the Texters with 17 points but would likely miss game five as he injured his wrist.

Game five will be on Friday (January 13, 2012) with the Boosters and the Texters playing in the second game at 7:30 pm.
