MANILA, Philippines — Top seed Luis Castro and No. 2 Carl Corpus fashioned out lopsided victories over their respective rivals to cruise to the quarterfinal round of the boys’ division while Sofia Legaspi and Korean Kim Seo pulled off reversals in the girls’ side of the Philippine Junior Amateur Match Play Golf Championship at Riviera’s Langer course in Cavite yesterday.

Castro eased out Matthew Abalos, 4&3, to arrange a Last 8 duel with No. 9 Pierre Ticzon, who edged eighth-seed David Guangko, 2&1, while Corpus toppled Rald Sarmiento, 5&4, for a clash with Korean Kim Tae Soo, who routed Paolo Barro, 6&5, in the lower half of the draw of the event sponsored by the MVP Sports Foundation and held as part of the PLDT Group National Amateur Golf Tour.

No. 4 Jose Jorge warded off Korean Rho Hyun Ho, 2&1, to clinch the other quarters seat against No. 5 Carlo Villaroman, who survived Joaquin Gomez, 1-up, in their side of the duel in the week-long tournament organized and conducted by the National Golf Association of the Philippines.
