Monday, July 16, 2012
THE race for the top two slots in the 2012 Mayor Lionel Bacaltos Invitational Softball Tournament is getting hotter after the victory of Team Chai-Chai of Perelos-Carcar over another Carcar City-based Team Baraca, 9-1, last Sunday.
Chai-Chai’s win complicated the race in Bracket A as it improved the team’s win-loss record to 3-1 and created a four-way tie for the top two spots.
Lapu-Lapu City’s Locan team, Labangon’s Boyce.net and local squad Guimbanko-an also have 3-1 records.
In Group B, the second slot is a tough race between Carcar’s Kuya Kim and Poblacion-Talisay City, who also 3-1 records.
Talisay scored an emphatic 8-1 win over Barangay Balaas team last Sunday. Baraca rebounded from its early defeat and beat host team Poblacion-Sibonga, 6-5, on its second game of the day.
This Sunday, the second slot in Group B will be decided as Poblacion-Talisay settles the score with Kuya Kim, while Chai-Chai and Boyce.net will try to boot each other out. Locan will also try to improve its chances as it faces Baraca in Group A.
