Fejeran Earns First Monthly Seniors Title


Guam – Dave Fejeran jumped to an early lead in the monthly finals of the Guam Senior Bowler of the Lanes after throwing a turkey to open the game.  However, back to back split leaves in the fifth and sixth frames allowed Jim Pinaula an opportunity to close the gap on the lower seeded player.  Fejeran continued to lead until opening with another split on the eighth frame which allowed Pinaula to take a four pin lead.  But tides turned in the ninth frame as Pinaula opened with a 4-6-10 split which allowed Fejeran to close the door on Pinaula who was unable to make up a handicap deficit of 32 pins falling on a scratch score of 177-175.

The semi-final round bore witness to the demise of the top seeded players as top seed Terry Roberto bowed out to 10th seed Dave Fejeran and 2nd seed Kin Sablan was shown the door by 6th seed Jim Pinaula.  Roberto’s total score of 206 was one strike shy of advancing as she fell to Fejeran’s 216 total while Pinaula cruised with a 195+2 to 143+32 output.

Roberto took pole position in the qualifying round held earlier in the day with a 1328 total which included 264 pins of handicap.  Sablan placed 2nd with 1298 (192 handicap) followed by Cindy Reyes 1270 (276), Norison Catbagan 1255 (12), Roger Mejares 1251 (210), Jim Pinaula 1240 (12), Remy Matanane 1239 (162), Edgar Caper 1235 (162), Nestor Valencia 1232 (1114) and Dave Fejeran’s 1230 (144) completed the top ten players that proceeded to the elimination rounds.

The next Guam Senior Bowler of the Lanes will be held on Sunday, March 13 at 11:00 a.m. at the Central Lanes Bowling Center.
