PhilHealth tops 2018 GCAA Basketball Tournament October 17, 2018

In the other championship game, the PhilHealth Seniors team succumbed to the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR), 61-78. Boyet Alfeche paced PhilHealth’s gallant stand and collected 18 points. He received ample support from teammates Eric Roy, Jhoel Hierro, and Michael Lacson.

The game was tightly contested until the early part of the fourth quarter when PhilHealth held a 54-50 advantage. However, the game went south for the social health insurers when Alfeche was called for an offensive foul nullifying the basket that could have pushed the lead to six. It was then that PAGCOR took control of the game and held PhilHealth at bay.

Dr. Roy B. Ferrer, Acting President and Chief Executive Officer of PhilHealth, praised the PhilHealth basketball teams and said, “Thank you for being our constant source of pride these past few years. Congratulations on winning yet another overall championship in the GCAA Basketball Tournament. Know that we follow your success with great admiration and it serves as a reminder that we are capable of achieving great things through hard work, unity, and perseverance.” (END) (JJ Rico)
