Cozmo Lane Specialists outsmart Ebonite in 3-game series
KUWAIT CITY, June 21: Lack of enthusiasm, lost of confidence and players’ truancy were the reasons why the lower six teams did not thrive for eminence in the penultimate round of the on-going PBAK-2018 Friendship Cup Team Tournament held at Cozmo Entertainement Khaifan Branch Bowling Center.
As predicted last week, joining the ‘magic 6’ for the teams outside the inner circle was inconceivable due to shoddy performance and just gladden settling their teams for Group 2 championship. Teams that posted victory were Al Qwassem All Stars, “X” Strikers, Detonators, Pin Pals, Cozmo Lane Specialists and Haribon Slazers.
Win or lose for the teams inside the ‘magic 6’ were irrelevant to reconsider due to point difference of eighty three marks from the seventh rank. No intimidation and less worrisome with-in their ranks therefore no more surprises and intense match up until the final day of elimination.
The collision between the two rated teams Haribon Slazers and Asian Air Safari both ‘handicap’ the result was 2,992-2,666 in favor of the Slazers with 8-2 records while Asiana had 6-4. Haribon Slazers top scorer was Eddie Pena (581) supported by Rene Marzan (534), Camilo Baker (526) and Moises Amahan (471) while Asian Air Safar’si big pointer was Sonia Mathews (531) assisted by Rudy de Lima (469), Aqeel Al Farisy (442) and Sandy Panopio (438). Al Qwassem All Stars registered its 7-3 record, murdered Pongky Strikers 2,894-2,250 who showed up with just two bowlers.
Team Captain Fadel Al Qassem (600) was the high pointer supported by seasoned Mousa Abdullah (502), Hassan Al Qassem (493), Hanadi Mezaiel (468) snf Naji Al Houli (440) while the two bowlers of Pongky Strikers were Adolfo Prena (399) and Cathy Fernandes (365).
Cozmo Lane Specialists outsmarted Ebonite (2,943-2,866) in their 3-game series where Cozmo won the first game with 1,041-866 but the second and third games were captured by the Ebonites 1,008-955, 992- 922.
