Meralco pushed defending champion San Miguel Beer to the limit Friday night after coming away with a 78-71 victory at the start of the PBA Philippine Cup quarterfinals at the Angeles University Foundation Sports and Cultural Center.

Veteran Reynel Hugnatan and rookie Aaron Black scored 16 and 14 points as the Bolts refused to put an end to their stint inside the Smart Clark Giga City bubble and force a literal win or go home situation at 6:45 p.m. Sunday evening.

SMB shot 5-of-32 from three-point range and was playing without Alex Cabagnot in the loss.
