PRESS RELEASE – Ray Manibusan and Nick Gutierrez seized their second title of the 2012 Budweiser King and Prince of the Lanes.

Manibusan strung strikes from the onset to take control of his matches early in the game and never looked back. The second seed established his on lane mastery of the short oil pattern by scorching the lanes against 9th seed Joey Miranda III 221-181 in the semi-final before dismantling top seed Bruce Calip in the monthly finale 266-203. Calip ousted 6th seed Brian Manibusan in the semi-final round sneaking past the lower seed with a 217-211 set.

In the quarter final rounds Manibusan threw eleven strikes as he cruised by 5th seed John John Ada 279-211 while Miranda outplayed 8th seed JD Castro 226-191.
