Bata, Django on to World Cup final eight (http://www.interaksyon.com/interaktv/bata-django-on-to-world-cup-final-eight)

Hall of Famer Efren “Bata” Reyes and his partner, former world champion Francisco “Django” Bustamante, barged their way into the quarterfinal round of the World Cup of Pool Thursday night at Robinsons Place Manila.

Up against a crack Canadian pair in Alex Pagulayan and John Morra, Reyes and Bustamante shook off a slow start to turn back their rivals and win, 8-5.

The Filipinos, who are two-time champions of this event, trailed 2-4 early, but an unforced error in the eighth rack from Pagulayan, a Filipino-Canadian player who chose to represent Canada, enabled Reyes and Bustamante to get back and complete a two-rack run.

They then won four of the next five racks to complete a come-from-behind win.

The win by Reyes and Bustamante eased the pain of the loss of another Filipino team, Dennis Orcullo and Lee Van Cortez, who were knocked out of the competition on Wednesday.

according to efren bata reyes, many years ago, Alex Pagulayan is not good. He said Pagulayan is only good in making the shots. Meaning, he is only good in putting the ball in the hole. But is not good in diskarte and does not have a solid pool generalship. Basta tira lang ng tira, hindi sanay magplano para sa next shots nya.
well, good luck to him.
