Camacho, Flickinger topples King and Prince field


Sunday, 23 September 2018 – CENTRAL LANES BOWLING CENTER

15-year-old Jeremiah Camacho bowled a 300 perfect game stringing twelve strikes in a row during the semi-final match of the Pin Point Guam King of the Lanes monthly tournament to qualify for the finals.  In the finals match, Camacho struggled during the first half against 2nd seed Gregory Borja as he trailed by forty pins after five frames.  The south paw found his groove thereafter as he began stringing strikes in the second half of the game.  As the match winded down, Camacho found himself having to strike out to win the match.  With Borja chopping the 6-10 leave, Camacho went to work one shot at a time to claim his second title of the year.  Top seed Camacho eliminated 6th Charlie Catbagan while Borja slipped past 9th seed Mike Gadia in the semi-final matches.

In the Prince of the Lanes, defending champion Jesse Flickinger beat out 2nd seed Jaeceline Espiritu 176-155 to claim his first title of the year.  Top seed Flickinger beat out 7th seed Arlene Reyes while Espiritu rolled past 8th seed Paul Perez to set up the final match up.

Camacho rolled games of 224, 247, 268 and 274 to claim pole position during the qualifying held earlier in the day for a 1013 total, 253 average.  Borja finished second followed by Noah Taimanglo, Jay Leon Guerrero, Aaron Elliott, Catbagan, Zachary Ford, Darien Borja, Gadia and RJ Santos rounded off the top ten who advanced to the elimination rounds.

Flickinger edged out Espiritu for the top spot in the Prince division followed by Arnold Javier, Evan Duenas, Arnold Hernandez, Gomez Martinez, Reyes, Perez, Naiyah Tiamanglo and Ben Taimanglo for the top ten.

The next Pin Point Guam King and Prince of the Lanes will be held on Sunday, October 21, 2018, 9:00 a.m. at the Central Lanes Bowling Center.
