“Malaking opportunity kasi talaga ito, malaking test yang National Team. Whatever you say thats the best of the best e,” shared Gonzalez.

The only motivation Montalbo and the Green Archers had for the contest were each other.

“Lagi naman eh. Pero mino-motivate ako ng teammates ko eh,” Montalbo shared about his aggression in the contest. “The big lead was because we were relaxed in the first half.”

The team’s next game will be against Perpetual Help next Friday at 4:30pm.
