CEBU CITY, Philippines—After clinching their first two victories, the Toledo City Trojans try to stretch their winning streak by taking on foreign teams in Wednesday’s games in the Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) Third Conference.

The Trojans beat the Davao Executives Chess Society (DECS) and the Pampanga Checkers last Saturday to end their losing drought and improve to 2-5 (win-loss) in the southern division standings.

Toledo City, which is at the eighth spot in the standings, will take on the Double Bishop Bangkok (2-5) of Thailand in the first match and the winless Pengcheng Checkered Dragons (0-5) of Shenzhen, China in the second match.

Meanwhile, the Lapu-Lapu City Naki Warriors will play against the Rizal Batch Towers (1-6) in the first match and the Caloocan Loadmanna Knights in the second match.

Lapu-Lapu is currently at sixth spot in the standings with a 4-3 slate. 

They, too, won all their matches last Saturday against Pengcheng and the Olongapo Rainbow Team 7.

The Naki Warriors will rely on Women’s International Master (WIM) Bernadette Galas, Elwin Retanal, Allan Pason, International Arbiter (IA) Lincoln Yap, Bryle Arellano, Anthony Makinano, and Aldwin Daculan.
