Centeno, Amit near all-Filipino finals in SEAG 9-balls

Chezka Centeno and Rubilen Amit stayed on course for an all-Filipino finals duel after clinching semis slots, Friday in the women’s 9-ball billiards action of the 30th Southeast Asian Games at the Manila Hotel Tent. 

Centeno, 20, the defending champion, whipped Angeline Ticoalu of Indonesia, 7-0. Meanwhile, Amit, 38, beat Fathrah Masum also of Indonesia 7-3.

Their semis opponents will be determined in other quarterfinals matches being held later Friday.

“I was lucky. She missed many shots,” said Centeno.

Amit said she needs to be more aggressive in her next matches.

“I opted to play many safety shots even though I needed to be aggressive. That’s why she (Masum) managed to stay in the match early on,” Amit said.

Centeno and Amit are also scheduled to play in the 10-ball singles semifinals against Myanmar opponents later Friday.
