Dumandan takes lead

SILANG, Cavite – Marvin Dumandan carded a second straight one-under 70 and took the clubhouse lead as play was suspended due to darkness with a number of flights, including that of opening round leader Clyde Mondilla, stranded in the second round of the ICTSI Riviera Classic at the Langer course yesterday.

Mondilla, who seized early control with a bogey-free 65 Wednesday, actually came out of the two-hour long delay due to threats of lightning in fierce form, bouncing back from a bogey on No. 14 with birdies on Nos. 16 and 2 for a running seven-under overall before play was stopped.

Three others – Michael Bibat, Arnold Villacencio and Korean amateur Tom Kim – pooled thee-under totals with seven holes to play while Ira Alido, who shot a 67 in the first round, fumbled with a two-over card after 12 holes.

That leaves Dumandan with the lowest completed round in another demanding day here with the former club pro assembling a 140 for a provisional one-stroke lead over Charles Hong, who took advantage of an early morning start and fired a bogey-free 68 for a 141.
