Pueblo de Oro drew a couple of 50 points from Pamela Mariano and Alethea Gaccion as it assembled a 181 to snatch a two-point lead after two rounds of the 2019 Champion Luzvimin Invitational golf tournament at the Cebu Country Club late Thursday.

Mariano, now the lead player of Pueblo after anchoring Del Monte’s title romp at Taal Splendido last year, sustained her 53-point output in the first round, scoring 51 Molave points and Gaccion turned in a second straight 50-point game while Juliane Borlongan and Marife Carmichael carded identical 40 points as the Pueblo ladies outdueled the hosts, 181-178, to surge ahead heading to the last 18 holes of the annual championship sponsored by Champion.

Cebu Country Club slowed down after a lead-grabbing 187-point output Wednesday, settling for a 178 behind Riko Nagai’s 47 points and Crytal Neri, Catrina Martinez and Mary Kim Hong’s 46, 45 and 40 points, respectively.
