Leo and Wee Rise To The Occasion

21st January, Singapore: Richard Leo and Alvin Wee were crowned the winners of the 2nd National League 2006 Premier Division Masters finals and 1st Division Masters finals at Orchid Bowl this evening over 12 games.

In the Premier Division, Richard Leo defended his title and defeated challenger, Jack Wong, by maintaining a steady lead throughout the games.

“I’m very glad to win again as I haven’t been competing much this year. It was a very close fight with Jack Wong throughout the 10 games, I only got more confident when I had a hi-game of 266 in the 11th set,” said Leo.

With a series of strikes in the 11th set, this representative from Marine Bowl secured his position while his challenger floundered.

Runner-up, Jack Wong, failed to pick up the pace and lost the title by a slim margin of 2574-2540.

In the First Division, Alvin Wee from PSA took his first title in 11 years ever since he clinched the title at the Singapore National Bowling Championship in 1996.

Wee remained steady throughout the 12 games and took the title from Tengku Adam with 2515-2412.

“I never expected to win, just took part to give it my best shot. I managed to maintain a steady lead as the lanes seem to suit my style today,” said Wee.

Close to $60,000 cash and $3,000 worth of prizes were given out to the winners throughout the league. The Premier Division champion walks away with $1,200 cash while the 1st Division champion walks away with $800 cash. Both winners also win attractive prizes sponsored by Brunswick.
