PAQUITO Santos emerged champion in the Davao Tenpin Bowlers Association (Datba) July Monthly finals tournament held over the weekend at the NCCC Mall B3 Center lanes.
Top qualifier Santos rolled past optometrist Virgilio "Billy" Magdale, 180-156, in just one game of the step-the-ladder finals.
Santos struck for a total of 1,594 pinfalls after eight games to gain the twice-to-beat advantage of the finals. Magdale placed second after hitting 1,570 pinfalls followed by Sonny Dimaano (1,561) and retired government employee Paul Rabe (1,558) who occupied the next two places.
In the step-the-ladder round, No. 3 Dimaano overcame Rabe, 194-173, but lost to No. 2 Magdale, 187-194. The latter, thus, arranged the titular showdown with Santos.
The winners received cash prizes and trophies.
