In the semi-final matches, Camacho beat out fellow National Youth teammate and top seed Noah Taimanglo 191-170 jumping to an early lead that he was able to sustain throughout the match.  Across the bracket, second seed Manibusan opened with a turkey and cruised past 4th seed RJ Santos 174-148 to set up the monthly finals.
