CEBU CITY, Philippines — The Toledo Xignex Trojans eye to cement their hold of the southern division’s top spot as they’re set for back-to-back matches on Wednesday, April 10, in the ongoing Professional Chess Association of the Philippines (PCAP) All-Filipino Cup First Conference. 

The Trojans are on a roll, winning three of their last four matches, putting them in the top spot of the southern division with five wins and one defeat. 

Moreover, they are currently tied with the Camarines Soaring Eagles with their win-loss record, but they have accumulated bigger tie-break points of 85 over the latter’s 77.5

Thus, tomorrow’s matches are crucial in determining whether they’ll stay on top or get dislodged by the Soaring Eagles, who also have scheduled matches on the same day. 

For their first opponent, the Trojans will face the Negros Sagar Sports, followed by the Tacloban Vikings.
