Filipina keglers crash out of top three in SEA Games bowling singles


The Philippine delegates could not crack into the top three of the 30th Southeast Asian Games bowling women’s singles event, coming up empty-handed on Tuesday at the refurbished Coronado Lanes in Starmall EDSA.

Out of 28 competitors, Liza Del Rosario finished in eighth place. She struck 1213 pinfalls overall in the six-game event, which was conquered by Singapore’s Fen Hui New, who had 1372 for the gold medal.

Tannya Roumimper of Indonesia captured silver with 1307 overall, while Shayna Ng of Singapore completed the podium finishers with a 1271 total.

Del Rosario landed the best position among the three other Filipina keglers in the pack. Alexis Sy settled at 11th place with a 1202 overall. Bea Hernandez and Lara Posadas-Wong managed 1100 and 1089, respectively.

“Sa singles we were expecting a medal from our ladies, but probably what happened was a… Sa tingin ko malakas ang performance bigla ng mga kalaban eh,” Philippine Bowling Federation chairman Tito Sotto said. “So I think we will be fairing better in the other [bowling] events.”

Del Rosario stayed within range of a medal after the opening game, sitting at second with 237. But a string of dismal outings in the next two matches — where she produced 155 and 184, respectively — pushed her out of the top three and down to 15th.

Del Rosario, though, remained resilient as she went for an upswing. She churned out 236 in the fourth then managed 203 and 201 in the fifth and sixth games, respectively. Unfortunately, Her strong finish was not enough to barge back into podium position.
