Camacho Storms to January Youth TitleWritten by Blake Watson
TAMUNING, GUAM - Jeremiah Camacho slammed a four bagger to open the monthly championship match and erase the 38-pin handicap advantage from 2nd seed Sebastian Loyola. After a mid-game struggle, Camacho got back on his striking mode and closed the game with a five bagger for a 244 game and the title as Loyola was unable to match the top seed’s output.
In the semi-final match, Loyola missed the first three frames as 3rd seed James Doyle opened a 36-pin lead. However, tide changed as Doyle opened on the 8th frame that provided an opening for Loyola. With a 16-pin handicap advantage and Doyle unable to close out the match, Loyola came back with a double on the 9th and 10th frame to edge out Doyle 171+46 to 183+30.
In the first step ladder match Doyle opened the match with a five bagger as 4th seed Noah Taimanglo’s turkey placed him in a hole throughout the set which prevailed for the higher seed. An errand frame by Taimanglo in the 7th gave Doyle a 27 pin lead. Noah Taimanglo finished with a four bagger, but fell short by 7 sticks against Doyle’s 21 pin handicap advantage.
Camacho led all competitors averaging 218 pins per game finishing with a 907 total including handicap. Loyola finished in second with a 875 total followed by James Doyle, Noah Taimanglo, Frank Manibusan Jr., Darien Borja, Victor Yalung, Jared Petrus, Xander Borja and Jacelyn Espiritu rounded off the top ten.
