Bacolod, Perlas bets gain semis

DUMAGUETE CITY – Smash Bacolod’s Bianca Lizares and Jennifer Cosas sustained their solid play and scored a 21-19, 21-19 win over Air Force 1’s May Ann Pantino and Jozza Cabalsa to advance to the semis in the BVR On Tour: Dumaguete Open semifinals Saturday at the Rizal Boulevard sand court here.

Cosas and Lizares played smart despite competing together for the first time, winning their first four matches, including a perfect 3-0 slate in Friday’s pool play.

Perlas pair of Bea Tan and Dij Rodriguez fashioned out a 21-8, 21-16 victory over Rizal Technological University’s Reyann Cañete and Sayrel Bermeo to arrange a semis clash with Lizares and Cosas.

Tan and Rodriguez, who were perfect in three games, are seeking a third championship as in many legs this year.

Two Air Force teams, meanwhile, led the men’s semifinalists.

Ranran Abdilla and Lopez bested Bacolod’s Christian Marcelino and Simon Aguillon, 21-17, 21-12, while Mike Abria and Jade Becaldo nipped NU Boysen’s James Buytrago and Pol Salvador, 21-16, 16-21, 17-15.
