Champion Bart Lanada and Runner Up Bal Perez

Bart Lanada took advantage of some pretty tough lane conditions enroute to victory and the May Senior Bowler of the Month title.

The lane pattern for the tournament left a few senior bowlers in total confusion while Lanada brought his spare game with him and led the senior pack after the opening 6 game qualifier.

In the shootout rounds, 10th seed Norbie De Silva slipped past 9th seed Ray Manibusan and 8th seed Chuck Meno in the first bracket. In the second bracket, 7th seed Buddy Saludo charged past 5th seed Jim Pinaula and 6th seed newcomer Jess Castro,

The round 2 quarterfinals saw De Silva stopped by 3rd seed Bal Perez 185-163, while Saludo continued his quest with a 197-173 over 4th seed Terry Roberto.

In the semifinals, Perez upset 2nd seed Jhun Viray while Saludo fell to Lanada to set up their championship.

It was when the lanes started to favor Lanada as his consistent spare shooting coupled with missed spares by Saludo paved the way to the first local title for Laneda in quite a while.

The next senior tournament will be 11:00 AM, June 23rd Central Lanes. This tournament is open to all male senior bowlers aged 50 or will be 50 this year.
