SINGAPORE --- Rubilen Amit and Chezka Centeno arranged an All-Filipina duel in women’s 9-ball singles assuring the country of another gold and silver medals in the 28th Southeast Asian Games Monday afternoon.
Amit, the 2013 edition’s silver medalist in the event, defeated Myanmar’s Aye Mi Aung, 7-2, in their afternoon semifinals a few hours after the 15-year-old Centeno crashed into the gold medal round with a 7-5 victory over Thailand’s Siraphat Chitchomnart at the OCBC Arena Hall 4 inside the Singapore Sports Hub here.
“Gold and silver kaya kumbaga nagawa namin ang trabaho namin pero siyempre tomorrow trabaho pa rin,” said Amit after exchanging high fives with Centeno.
The finals showdown on Tuesday is set at 1:00 p.m.
