Sunday, March 20, 2022 – CENTRAL LANES BOWLING CENTER, Tamuning, Guam
After opening with a four-bagger, RJ Santos calmly delivered three-pocket strikes to close out the final match and claim the March edition of the Budweiser King of the Lanes against top seed Manny Tagle. Santos led by as much as twenty pins mid-game as Tagle managed to close the gap in the latter frames until the closeout by Santos.
Tagle and Santos set up their finals appearance by ousting their respective semi-final opponents. Tagle upended 7th seed Darrell Scott while Santos derailed second seed Ray San Nicolas’ chances of advancing. 4th seed Santos eliminated 3rd seed Cameron Santos in the quarter-finals while Scott edged out 5th seed Ricky Duenas.
Tagle led all bowlers in the qualifying stage contested on a 39’ pattern with an 822 total followed by San Nicolas, Cameron Santos, RJ Santos, Duenas, Mike Sanchez, Scott, Aaron Elliott, Jay Leon Guerrero, and Maria Wood.
In the Prince of the Lanes contest, 3rd seed Mike Brown marched to the title outlasting 5th seed Gomez Martinez to earn his first Budweiser Prince of the Lanes title ever. Brown’s road to the finals includes wins over 2nd seed Jose Natividad, 4th seed, and defending back-to-back monthly champion Corey Granillo and 9th seed Cris Leal. Martinez beat out top seed Sheila Bangs in the semi-final, 6th seed Von Cabral in the quarter-final match, and 10th seed Rene Cariaso in the first elimination round.
The next Budweiser King and Prince of the Lanes will be held on Sunday, April 10, 2022, at 1:15 p.m. at the Central Lanes Bowling Center.
