UAAP 85 WCH: Mordido continues to lead NU to top spot after Round 11

National University remained undefeated after 11 rounds in the UAAP Season 85 Women’s Chess Championship with a 3-1 win over University of the Philippines, Sunday at the FEU Tech Gym in Manila.

The Lady Bulldogs increased their total to 25.5 points with three rounds left. Far Eastern University remained a close second with 22 points but with only two games left while De La Salle University, who still has three matches, is at third with 21 points.

Woman National Master Bea Mendoza (7/10) recovered from a Saturday mishap with a much-needed win over Jashua Patria (2/10) in Board 2, to combine with Candidate Master Divine Luna’s (4/8) triumph in Board 3 over Queenie Samarita (3/10).

Woman Fide Master Allaney Jia Doroy (7/9) delivered the goods on Board 1 after surviving a late scare and emerging on top of a 65-move rook endgame over UP’s Precious Ferrer (3/8).

Woman International Master Kylen Joy Mordido (8/9) followed suit by surviving a mating attack and executing perfect counterplay to win material and conquer Justnin Macapuno (4.5/8) in 47 moves of the Sicilian Defense playing the black pieces.

Jesca Docena (6/9) and Princess Ballete finished (4.5/8) with draws in Boards 3 and 4, respectively, against Jee-Ann Barry (2.5/6) and Jallen Agra (4/8), respectively.

Far Eastern University also took a 2.5-1.5 win over Adamson University to hold on to the second spot.

Woman National Master Rizalyn Tejada (4.5/9) then settled for a draw across Bonalyn Ornido (5.5/10) in Board 4 to make up for Me Ann Baclayon’s (5.5/10) loss to Adamson’s Robelle De Jesus (4/10) in Board 1.

In Board 2, Francois Magpily (8/9) also secured a win over Josemier Panol (3.5/10) while Irish Yngayo (5.5/9) tallied another victory in Board 3 against Rohanisah Buto (3/9) as teammate Arena Fide Master Sara Olendo’s (1/8) fell to Jamaica Lagrio (6.5/10) in Board 4.
