PRESS RELEASE – In a finals that featured the top two seeds, Brandon Manibusan successfully defended his monthly reign as the youth bowler of the month.

Top seed Paul Kaneshiro shaved off Manibusan’s handicap advantage with a double, striking on the eighth and ninth frames. With a frame left and only a mark needed on the final stanza to upstage the defending champion, Kaneshiro’s ball collided sharply onto the head pin with too much angle leaving a four count split that spelled his demise. Kaneshiro’s spare attempt went assail along with the title as Manibusan laid claim to his second title with a 195-190 score.

In the semi-final round, Manibusan easily disposed of third seed Jaecelyn Espiritu 189+48 to 128+79 while Espiritu got the better of fourth seed Jeremiah Camacho in the quarter finals 120+79 to 127+63.

Kaneshiro led all qualifiers with a 882 total including handicap followed by Manibusan’s 823, Espiritu 822, Camacho 820, Jarwin Espiritu 802, Von Apuya 783, Zayne Zamora 768, Noah Taimanglo 766, Robert Barlongo 760 and Nikko Gutierrez’s 733 rounded off the top ten.

The next Guam Youth Bowler of the Month will be held on Saturday, November 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. at the Central Lanes Bowling Center. Any interested bowlers 21 years of age and below are invited to attend.
