In the championship round, Mengullo and her Dagupan City rival proved to be equal in strength and skills as the score was tied, 3-3, after one minute and 45 seconds in the match.

A punch from Mengullo that found the abdomen of her foe before the game ends, earned the Bacoleña another point for a 4-3 victory.

Meanwhile, Samonte settled for the silver medal in boys’ 8 years old and below kata-advance after performing a “Jihon” kata or shotokan style.

The gold went to Cebu’s entry who performed a Shito-ryu and Shorin-ryu styles.

Also reaching the quarterfinals in the 8-9 years old girls’ kumite was JJS karateka Jasmine Claire Veniegas who hurdled her first bout against NCR after the latter was slapped with a disqualification due to excessive blows to the face of the Bacoleña.
