SEA Games: For fourth straight time, Amit meets Centeno in final


Finally, a final between Rubilen Amit and Chezka Centeno is happening at the 31st Southeast Asian Games.

The two Filipino cue artists found themselves disputing the women’s 10-ball title following their respective victories in the semifinals, Friday at the Ha Dong Gymnasium in Hanoi, Vietnam.

Amit will have a chance for her second gold medal of the Games after trouncing Thailand’s Pennipa Nakjui, 7-0, earlier this morning.

Centeno, who missed on a medal in the 9-ball singles, on her part, climbed from 0-3 down, and snagged the semifinal win over Vietnam’s Bui Xan Vang, 7-5.

The two met in the gold medal match of the 10-ball singles here in Manila where the younger Centeno won.
