RUPERT Zaragosa slugs it out with reigning World Junior champion Kristopher Arevalo on Wednesday as the Philippine Match Play Championship presented by the MVP Sports Foundation resumes at Canlubang Golf’s South course.

The first match pitting Saldana against De Claro starts at 8 p.m.
Mikhaela Fortuna takes on Seo Yon-kwon; Bernice Ilas-Olivares locks horns with Samantha Martinez and Harmie Constantino will be pitted against Felicia Medalla in other ladies’ matches in the tournament backed by Pancake House, Pacsports and Golf Depot.
