The Philippine team of Carlo Biado and Jeff de Luna downed the Albanian duo of Eklent Kaci and Besar Spahju, 7-5, to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup of Pool at Morningside Arena in Leicester, England.

Biado and De Luna won three consecutive racks to go on the hill at 6-3 before weathering Kaci and Spahju’s comeback attempt to reach the last eight of the annual nine-ball doubles competition.

Their win was a follow-up to a 7-6 triumph over Roman Hybler and Michal Gaveniak of Czech Republic in the first round.

Up next for the pair is a quarters duel with Canada’s Filipino-born Alex Pagulayan and John Morra which was being played at presstime.

Pagulayan, who once represented the Philippines, and Morra edged Estonia’s Denis Grabe and Mark Magi, 7-6.
