Jay Leon Guerrero registered his second Asian Intercity perfect game on lanes 15 and 16 to start the team off the blocks and help cut into the 81 pin deficit from George Town, Malaysia. However, the 917 set was only good enough to stay in second as Hong Kong surged ahead of Guam with Hung Po Fai duplicating the feat as he bowled a perfect game on lanes 19 and 20.

Guam’s record setting performance team of JD Castro, Jay Leon Guerrero, Duane Camacho and John John Ada established a new one game team record for the Asian Intercity Bowling Championship during game 2 of the team event second block for the 26th edition contested in Premium Lanes, Sunshine Square, Penang, Malaysia. The team registered a total score of 1,069 pin falls as strikes reigned throughout the course of the game where Guam’s competitors struck on 39 of 48 frames on lanes 11 and 12. Castro led off the team’s effort with a 223 game doubling on every other frame. Leon Guerrero continued his striking scheme as he flushed the front nine frames before leaving a seven count on the tenth frame converting for a 277 score. Duane Camacho opened the game with a split spare then ran the sheet to bowl a 290, the highest game for the team, while anchor John John Ada added the exclamation point with eleven strikes in a row after opening the first frame for a 279 game.

The 1069 total along with the first game series of 918 pins catapulted the team to the top post after five games providing cushion from the host and first block leaders Georgetown, Malaysia and fourth game leader Hong Kong. With the comfortable lead, Team Guam continued to strike at will to seal the Gold medal with a 5297 six game set, 282 pins ahead of Hong Kong while George Town, Malaysia claimed the bronze with 5008.
