    2013ABFT06LeeTakManAngkanaNetvrseth.jpgMacau national team member Lee Tak Man and Thai international Angkana Netvrseth (pictured left, l-r) took the men's and women's title in the Asian Bowling Federation Tour Macau leg Thursday at COTAI International Bowling Center in Macau, China.

    In the men's title match, local favorite Tak Man defeated 2013 Macau China International Open champion Cheng Hsing-Chao of Chinese Taipei, 206-188, to claim his first title on the Tour. Netvrseth won her third career ABFT title with a 214-155 victory over Veronica Dias, Macau.

    Tak Man, who finished fourth in the Macau Open, which served as qualifying event for the ABFT leg started the single-elimination one-game match Round of 16 with a 217-212 win against Rickle Kam of Hong Kong, before he threw a perfect game in the Round of 8, a rare feat on the ABF Tour, to eliminate his compatriot Choi Io Fai, 300-167.

    In the semifinals, the 22-year-old, who will represent Macau at the 4th Asian Indoor and Martial Arts Games in Incheon, South Korea, next week, sidelined Hong Kong bowler Rocky Hui in a close match, 219-204, to bowl Cheng for the title.

    The Macau Open winner, who was targeting to win his second title in Macau within two days, got off to a great start defeating Li Min Jhe, Chinese Taipei, 245-203, in the opening round.

    Cheng then ousted two of Asia's finest, multiple Asian ranking winner Wu Siu Hong of Hong Kong, 218-216, and 2013 ABF Tour TOC winner Yannaphon Larp-apharat of Thailand, 247-193, in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively.

    The title match close until the eighth frame when Cheng made a critical mistake when he failed to convert a two-pin combination. Tak Man marked in the last three frames to walk away the winner.

    On the women's side, Netrviseth started with two solid games defeating Tracey Lin, Singapore, 199-171, and ABF Tour Thailand leg winner Wendy Chai, Malaysia, 193-171, in the rounds of 16 and 8, respectively.

    In the semifinals, Netrviseth flew past Macau's Hui Tong, 233-174, before she cruised to her third ABFT title with a 214-155 victory over Tong's fellow countrywoman Veronica Dias.

    Dias, who eliminated Chen Ya-Chi, Chinese Taipei, 216-186, Kerdto Kanda, Macau, 172-145, and Tanaprang Sathean, Thailand, 191-176, on her way to the title match, suffered three opens until the seventh frame while Netrviseth reeled off four a four-bagger in frames 4-7 to put the match away.

    ABFTourLogo_small.jpg The 2013 ABF Tour consists of ten legs, five in the Middle East with a men's division only and five in East and South East Asia featuring men and women in separate divisions. The Tour will take a three-month break before heading to Jakarta, for the Indonesia leg at Jaya Ancol Bowling Center Monday, September 23.

    Players earn ranking points based on how they finish in each event. The top 16 men and the top 16 women at the end of the 2013 season qualify for the ABF Tour Tournament of Champions scheduled for March 2014 (date and venue tba).
