Roberto Gomez and Dennis OrcolloThe Philippine pair of Dennis Orcollo and Roberto Gomez won against Finland with a score of 9-1, securing a place on the semi-finals of 2010 World Cup of Pool.

Orcollo and Gomez were on top of their games today. They made an 8-0 run before Finland got a score, and finally nailed them with a final score of 9-1.

Here’s what Orcollo has to say:

“Maybe tomorrow we break and all the balls will go in!”

“We made our break good and there was always a shot on so that’s why the confidence was there.”

“With the audience there’s a lot of confidence there as they are always very supportive of the Philippines and that’s why we played really nice tonight.”

And here’s a quote from Gomez:

“We played a great game and it was our best performance but maybe we can play better tomorrow.”

“We were trying to look for the break and I think we found it as we made it every time.”

“The break is something we only practise two or three hours before the game here so we’re ready for anything. It’s really important to practise on the same table and on the same cloth.”

“We have Taiwan tomorrow but for us we do not see who the opponent is.
“If we play the same as this then we can beat anybody and everybody but Taiwan are a really tough team.”

Here are the results of the 2010 World Cup of Pool quarter finals:
China 9-3 Indonesia
Germany 9-7 France
Taiwan 9-5 Poland
Philippines B 9-1 Finland

The semi-final is scheduled on Sunday, September 12, 2010 starting at 1:00PM. Scheduled games are China vs Germany and Philippines B vs Taiwan.
