    0

    Julius Gonzales of La Salle Greenhills and Jesca Docena of Wesleyan College put on a strong finish to capture the boys and girls’ kiddies crowns, respectively, in the Shell National Youth Active Chess Championships NCR leg at SM Megamall Event Center last Thursday. Gonzales actually seized control early with a sweep of his first five games then closed out with 3.5 points in the last four rounds to emerge solo champion in the 14-and-under class of the nine-round Swiss system tournament. The third-ranked Docena, on the other hand, won her last three games over Franchel Javier, Jasmine Tejada and No. 4 Francois Magpily to top the seven-round Swiss system tournament with 6.5 points.
