With the win Guerrero earns his third title for the year while Villanueva won his second.

Before Guerrero was able to lay his hands on the trophy, 2nd seed Greg Borja gave him a run for the cup sending the game into extra frames as Guerrero flagged a single pin leave in the last frame against a spare strike combination by Borja to finish the regulation match with identical scores of 197. The match went into extra frames of which Guerrero out pinned Borja 39-27 for the victory. Guerrero out played 6th seed Brian Manibusan in the semi-final match 215-167 while Borja edged 8th seed Manny Tagle 196-192 to set up the monthly finals.

Keith Guerrero trampled the field with a 1295 total after bowling a 276 in the last game of the qualifying round held earlier in the day. Guerrero’s games of 210, 223, 169, 222, 195 and 276 was 99 pins better than second placer Greg Borja who ended the day with an 1196 series followed by Jim Pinaula 1170, Victor San Nicolas 1144, Frank Russo 1140, Brian Manibusan 1126, Duane Camacho 1122, Manny Tagle 1114, Ricky Duenas 1105 and JD Castro’s 1098 rounded off the top ten.

Villanueva ousted 4th Jared Gutierrez in the monthly finals using his handicap advantage to claim his second title. Gutierrez 171 game was not enough to overcome the ten pin advantage held by Villaneuva as his 167 game with 35 pins of handicap was six points better than Gutierrez 196 total with 25 handicap.

Top seed Villanueva’s handicap came in handily throughout the course of the tournament as he beat 5th seed Ken Duenas in the semi-final 189+35 to 192+18 before winning the monthly title. Gutierrez upended 2nd seed Von Cabral whose three month second place finish came to an end 177+25 to 164+21.

Cesar Villanueva held off a surging Von Cabral in the final game for pole position with a 1321 total on 210 pins of handicap as his earlier games of 235, 195 and 200 was enough to slip by Cabral’s last two games of 256 and 203 by a mere 14 pins. Cabral finished with a 1304 total on 126 pins of handicap followed by Brandon Manibusan 1276 (228 handicap), Jared Gutierrez 1238 (150), Ken Duenas 1183 (108), Kathy Mandapat 1163 (180), Nikko Gutierrez 1143 (162), Cris Leal 1139 (1140< Marie Velasco 1135 (120) and Jeremiah Camacho’s 1115 (156) edged out Lisa Duenas by four pins for the final slot into the elimination round.
