Del Monte pads Ladies’ Interclub lead
ILOILO – With Sofia Chabon shooting a 10-over-par 80 worth 44 points, Del Monte took a commanding lead over defending champion Manila Southwoods Masters after the second round yesterday of the PAL Ladies Interclub at Sta. Barbara here.

Kristin Leonen and Pam Mariano each accounted for 43 for a second-day 130 and 267 by the Bukidnon-based bets, who now have a huge 32-point lead over the beleaguered Southwoods lasses.

Abigail Arevalo, a 12-year-old coached by her father Tony, paced Southwoods with a second straight 44, but the Carmona squad could only get 38 from skipper Beachie Abiera and 37 from Christine Naidoo.

Southwoods tallied 119 for 235, and would need to make up a lot of ground in today’s third round to make a tournament out of this, but it would have to do so with Arevalo, a Junior World veteran, on the bench after she had played the first two days.

“It’s too early to think about the title,”Del Monte captain Maribel San Miguel, whose 25 was thrown away, said. “With all the pressure coming our way, we are more than motivated to play our best.”

Coming off the bench for Southwoods in the last two rounds will be Mia Legaspi, Sunshine Baraquiel and Annika Cedo, a prodigious 13-year-old who is also a product of father Jun Cedo’s teachings.

“I am still optimistic that we can pull through,” Abiera said. “We will be fielding our best players for the last two rounds.”
