Late rally lifts Sevilla to the top

SENIOR bowler Marvin Sevilla came up with a huge final two rounds to stave off Micmic Miranda in the Cebu Tenpin Bowling Association (Cetba) Monthly Tournament on Tuesday night, Jan. 28, 2020, at the SM City Cebu Bowling Center.

Sevilla scored a couple of 213s in the fifth and sixth round to bring his total to 1,247 in the six-game series, outlasting Miranda by a mere five points for the Monthly Bowler of the Month title.

The 20-handicapper Sevilla took an early lead after scoring 206 in the opening round, but struggled with a lowly 147, 179 and 169 in the next three rounds, losing the lead to Miranda, who scored 167, 199, 216 and 205 in the first to fourth rounds.

The final two rounds spelled the difference for Sevilla as he put up 213s while Miranda faltered with 172 and 163.

Senior bowler Danny Sabang finished third with a total score of 1,230 from rounds of 145, 162, 196, 200, 193 and 154.

Completing the Top 10 were John Galindo (1,210), Ronan Barredo (1,198), Docdoc Gothong (1,198), Bong Supremo (1,195), female bowler Sonia Gakenholz (1,165), Baby Bacon (1,134) and Fred Torrequemada (1,118).

The Bowler of the Month is already guaranteed a slot in the Cetba Grand Finals in December. (RSC)
