Awid wins Datba monthly finals

ELIMINATION round leader Ivan Awid kept his luck in the finals to pocket the Datba January monthly finals tournament title at SM Lanang Premier Bowling Center over the weekend.

Twice-to-beat Awid rolled past Paul Palacio, 202-182, in the step-the-ladder finals to take home the P10,000 champion's cash prize, while the latter settled for the runner-up prize of P5,000.

Awid, who had a handicap of 20, led the six-game eliminations by hitting a total of 1,274 pinfalls, while Palacio (30) rolled 1,198 pins to place second followed by Kert Palces (1,188) third and Art Galendez (1,182) fourth.

In the step-the-ladder, No. 3 Palces toppled No. 4 Galendez, 197-179. But Palces fell at the hands of No. 2 Palacio who defeated him, 187-168.

Thus, Palacio earned the right to challenge twice to beat Awid.

A weekly qualifying tournament was set Tuesday, February 4, at the same venue.
