February tilt earned by Elliott, Hernandez

February 2021 King of the Lanes

Sunday, March 7, 2021 – Central Lanes Bowling Center, Tamuning, Guam

After being shuttered for almost a year from the competition environment, Guam’s bowlers took to the lanes for the monthly King and Prince event.  With COVID-19 measures in place, bowlers were anxious to get back to the competitive vibe.

Aaron Elliott and Arnold Hernandez took the mantle as King and Prince of the Lanes for the month of February after defeating their respective opponents in the monthly finals.

Elliott finished the four-game qualifier tied for second place with Jared Gutierrez.  He was able to secure the second-place post and a two-round bye, after he struck in the tie breaker format against Gutierrez’ seven pin count.

Elliott outpaced fourth seed Jeremiah Camacho in the semi-final round cruising to a comfortable victory, while top seed RJ Santos crushed the pins dismissing fifth seed Ray Cruz to set up the finale.  In the final match, Elliott’s experience helped him claim the contest along with the title against the south paw.

It was a family affair in the Prince division title match as Arnold Hernandez narrowly edged his eighty plus year old father Rolly Hernandez by two pins.  Arnold beat out defending champion and top seed Claricelle Lanuza while Rolly Hernandez slipped by second seed Julius Checa in the semi-final rounds.

The next King and Prince of the Lanes will be held on Sunday, March 28, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. at the Central Lanes Bowling Center.
