Dumandan in control; darkness halts play

SILANG, Cavite  , Philippines  —  Marvin Dumandan carded a second straight one-under 70 and took the clubhouse lead as play was suspended due to darkness with a number of flights stranded in the second round of the ICTSI Riviera Classic at the Langer course yesterday.

Clyde Mondilla, who seized early control with a bogey-free 65 Wednesday, actually came out of the two-hour long delay due to threats of lightning in fierce form, bouncing back from a bogey on No. 14 with birdies on Nos. 16 and 2 for a running seven-under overall before play was stopped.

Three others – Michael Bibat, Arnold Villacencio and Korean amateur Tom Kim – pooled three-under totals with seven holes to play while Ira Alido, who shot a 67 in the first round, fumbled with a two-over card after 12 holes.

That leaves Dumandan with the lowest completed round in another demanding day here with the former club pro assembling a 140 for a provisional one-stroke lead over Charles Hong, who took advantage of an early morning start and fired a bogey-free 68 for a 141.

Unheralded Omar Dungca hobbled with a 72 for a 142.

The top 50 plus ties after 36 holes will move to the final two days of the $100,000 championship.
