Labog, Lagula set pace in Shell Active Chess NCR leg


Top seed Marc Kevin Labog and No. 6 Mc Dominique Lagula swept their first five matches to lead the seniors division of the Shell National Youth Active Chess Championship NCR leg at SM Megamall Event Center on Friday. Labog, a mainstay of Adamson U, trampled Jean dela Cruz, Mira Mirano, Michael Magpily, Paulo Cristobal and Antonio Almodal while Lagula, playing out of San Beda, matched that romp with victories over Joshua Arias, Ruth De Guzman, Michael Manansala, Ralph Floro and Ryan Magtabog. Labog and Lagula were disputing the lead at presstime with the winner zeroing in on the crown in the nine-round Swiss system tournament for players aged 17-20.
