Danmerl Boleros went from third to first in the team standings after a back-to-back Team of the Week and Bowler of the Week double during the 16th session in the Jeddah Thursday Bowling League 8th Season at the Sultana Mall’s Bowling City here.
For the second straight week Boleros were the top point getter, securing 38 points with Victor Pagayon emulating teammate Ruben Grino by completing a Boleros double when he won the Bowler of the Week award.
Arctic Gold was a distant second on the day in the points race on 31 followed by Clear Shampoo 27, X-Alley 26 and Jem Strikers 23. YRJ Bowlers reutnred 20 points.
Apart from Danmerl’s prodigious display erstwhile league leader Sadia hastened its fall at the top when it could only muster 13 points in a tie with Pin Busters. Only Thumbs-Up was worse than Sadia on 11 points, while D’ Barkads did better on 18.
Boleros could have finished the session perfect on 40 were it not for a Game 3 misstep where they finished third behind Jem Strikers and Clear Shampoo.
Pagayon shot the high series of 690 (245, 247,186) at the helm of a Boleros charge that also netted solid rounds of 658 from Bonnie Garcia and 608 from Jack Jarin. Grino, the previous week’s individual awardee, added 594 to go with the 173-214 from Cesar Monares and 172 from Danny Pamintuan.
