Perez claims maiden Youth title

Sunday, January 20, 2019 – Central Lanes Bowling Center, Tamuning, Guam

Youth Champion Paul Perez

Top seed Paul Perez used the first two days of competition as practice shooting, then poured It on during the opening frames of the final match against Josiah Lanuza.  However, Lanuza was not going to make it easy opening with two baggers and closing with a four bagger.  Unfortunately, the handicapping advantage of Perez was a tad too much as the final tally of 183+65 to 209+45 was enough for Perez to claim his first crown, the Guam National Bowling Championship youth division.

In the semi-final round 2nd seed Lanuza took advantage of the inexperience of 3rd seed Jordan Hattori as he filled each frame for a 197-scratch game to edge out the lower seed by seven pins.
