Lance & 3rdy teamPip R. PlanasJEDDAH – Ric Reformado powered Lance & 3rdy to win over Micah’s Pride while Eva Garcia maximized her handicap to inspire Fire Fox in dominating the Pin Slashers on week two of the Friday Morning Bowling League 12th conference organized and administered by the Filipino Expatriate Damayan Bowling Group at the Bowling City here.
With his quick pro-like tracking Reformado readily seared lanes 9 and 10 with 247 and with the balance supports from Elo Manalo, Edward Botardo, Med Ramos, Ver Jasa and team manager Evelyn Santoc, Lance & 3rdy shutout Micah’s at 1,243-1,109 on the opening salvo.
Keeping teammates buoyant, Reformado followed up with 204, but counterpart Oca Bernabe regained honor by returning 229 to have Micah’s Pride level the card with 1,154-1,138 on fair efforts of Melvin Lising, Ruel Santoc, Jack Jarin, Ronnie de Castro and TC Ester Santoc.
An action-pack battleground was then seen on the last lap with Lising and Ruel notably mark-trading with Reformado and Manalo. But with Reformado capping with 246 and Manalo adding 221, Lance & 3rdy emerged victorious when Micah’s Lising and Ruel could only combine 413 to last the card at 16-4 (3,630-3,417).
Lance & 3rdy garnered its first team of the week honor on this superlative aggregate and earned twin reputation when team captain Reformado turned out Bowler of the Week with his hi-series record setter of 697 from fantastic games of 247, 204 and 246.
Unheard for quite sometimes Eva Garcia broke into the limelight when she guided Fire Fox in defeating defending champion Pin Slasher with her lady Bowler of the Week honor-winning total of 664. Garcia led teammates with her personally developed kegling talents of 222, 219 and 223. Such unchallenged output prompted TC Obie Ycasas (512), Archie ALcantara (529), Vic Bantay (568), Serge Rivera (537) and novice Melo Amano (578) to respond well and cleverly face the team-to-beat. Such positive reactions resulted in advantageous 11-9 on final aggregates of 3388-3200. Aileen Miralbuna shielded Pin Slasher best at 626.
Petromin Express, X-Alley and Ekis-3 carded 16-4 against Ball Care For Now, Royal Strikes and D’Mountaineers respectively. Fed Extreme upset Shawly Bowlers at 12-8 and unopposed Pin Rockers earned 16 points.
