Gilas Pilipinas falls anew, loses to Estonia

12:35 PM August 22, 2015

Despite picking up the slack late after trailing early in the game, Gilas Pilipinas fell short again, this time against host Estonia, 90-80, in the Toyota Four Nations Cup on Saturday at Saku Suurhall Arena in Tallinn.

After the home team unloading 33 points in the first quarter and erecting a lead as high as 23, Gilas slowly chopped away at the lead and got to as close as nine, 86-77, with under three minutes to play on a Terrence Romeo trey.

However, the Estonians proved to be steadier in clutch as they hit  timely baskets to stave off the late run from the Philippines.

It was an improvement of sorts from coach Tab Baldwin’s side after a 27-point drubbing at the hands of Netherlands a day prior.

Calvin Abueva and Matt Ganuelas-Rosser both fouled out of the game, with Abueva exiting the match in the halfway mark of the third period.
