Jay Leon Guerrero showcased his match play prowess during the February edition of the Budweiser King of the Lanes competition as he romped through his opponents during the elimination rounds.  In round one, 3rd seed Leon Guerrero battered the newly crowned Asian Intercity Bowling Champion, Charlie “Mama” Char Catbagan 221-145, then connected a five-bagger in the closing frames during the quarter-final round to upend 8th seed Cameron Santos 222-201.  He went toe-to-toe with his godson in the semi-final round stringing eight strikes in a row to stop 2nd seed Evan Duenas in his hot pursuit of the title, 267-245.  In the championship pair, Leon Guerrero finished the job ousting top seed RJ Santos 200-183 to claim the monthly title.  Santos defeated 5th seed Ray San Nicolas in the other semi-final match 234-167 to set up the monthly finale.

In the Prince of the Lanes competition, 10th seed Bill Roberto also took the scenic route as he took out 5th seed Sheila Bangs in the first round, then beat 7th seed Leody Ersando in the quarter final.  He eliminated defending monthly champion and top seed Arlene Reyes in the semi-final round 194 to 169 and came back from 23 pins down in the final frames of the championship match to claim the title against 2nd seed Enrique Corcino 189-176.

Santos topped the competitive field after bowling back-to-back games of 264 and 265 to lead the group by 65 pins.  Duenas finished in second followed by Leon Guerrero, Gregory Borja, Noah Taimanglo, Jeremiah Camacho, Cameron Santos, Catbagan and Corey Granillo rounded off the top 10 in the King division.
