MANILA, Philippines -- Former world pool champion Rubilen Amit bested compatriot Chezka Centeno to bag the gold medal in the 9-ball singles event of the 30th Southeast Asian Games, Sunday at the Manila Hotel Tent.

Amit claimed the match with a score of 7-3, and Centeno settled for the silver for another 1-2 finish for the Pinay duo.

Amit bucked a slow start to beat Centeno, and exacted a measure of revenge against her 20-year-old teammate. Centeno had won their showdown in the 10-ball matchup last Saturday.

With the win, the Philippine women's billiards team has delivered two golds and two silvers.
