Top seed Gonzaga, who will turn 14 next month, first showed his superiority in the boys 14-under class by besting eighth seed Joshua Diva, 6-0, 6-2, before returning a few hours later to defeat No. 7 Manolo Angara, 5-7, 7-5, 10-6, in the boys 16-under division.
The twin victories set up Gonzaga a semis meeting with Exequiel Jucutan in the 14-under and 10th seed Marco Macalintal in the 16-under.
