Going into the last 12 minutes of the game with Great Taste up by five points, 80-75, a 16-4 run by the Coffee Makers open up a 17-point deficit, 96-79, and looks headed for an easy win and a victory celebration until the Coffee Kings, behind the blazing hands of Bogs Adornado and Ludovico "Naning" Valenciano, suddenly trimmed down the lead to a single margin. The score was 107-99 in favor of Great Taste when Naning Valenciano drained in three consecutive triples in a 9-2 burst as the Coffee Kings came within a point, 108-109, the Coffee Makers didn't call a timeout and Abe King was fouled with four seconds remaining, King muffed his two free throws that gave Hills Bros a chance to reverse the outcome of the game, unfortunately, time ran out as Marte Saldaña failed to score as the buzzer sounded.
