Judiciary, PNP clash for 2nd round berth

    JUDICIARY and Philippine National Police dispute the fourth and last second round berth on Sunday in a showdown between former champions in the 8th UNTV Cup at the Pasig City Sports Center.

    The Judiciary Magis, who have ruled the tournament for public servants twice, and the PNP Responders, who reigned three years ago, tangle at 4:30 p.m. with both teams out to nail their second win in the six-team Group B to advance to the second round.

    With injuries to key players early in the season, the once feared squads struggled as the Magis and Responders won only once in four games so far.

    The winner will join unbeaten Department of Environment and Natural Resources (5-0), Malacañang-Philippine Sports Commission (4-1), and National Housing Authority (3-2).

    Equally important is the match between Ombusdman and PITC in Group A with the former out to improve their 1-3 record and forge a tie with the Global Traders (2-2) and the PhilHealth Plus (2-3).
