    Farber, the oldest on the U.S. squad with 20 years of age, and Doyle, the youngest (16), averaged 235.83 for the first three games including games of 479, 489 and 447 but were unable maintain the pace in the second block (1215) to finish 47 pins behind the Swedes and to overtake second place with 2630.

    Sweden's two-handed lefty Jesper Svensson, bronze medalist in Singles (left), who currently owns third place in Doubles with his teammate Magnus Johnson at 2496, leads in All-Events (combined results of Singles, Doubles and Team preliminaries) with 2731 12-game total and an average of 227.58. Doyle is second with 2680 and Jansson third with 2603.

    The Malaysians moved into fourth place with 2484 followed by Canada in fifth place on 2473 with Netherlands in sixth at 2471. Bahrain's Ahmed Al Goud and Taha Selail (2408) and Kuwait's Mostafa Al Mousawi and Abdulrahman Suwayed (2407) fell out of the top 4 and slipped to seventh and eighth place.

    2014WYCShionIzumuneKanaShimoide3.jpg2014WYCAlishaNabilaNadiaPramanik.jpgSquad B leaders Japan, Indonesia, United States and Mexico remained atop the girl's leaderboard looking if their scores will hold on in the last Squad B this afternoon.

    Singles silver and bronze medalists Shion Izumune and Kana Shimoide (left, l-r), Japan, hold the top spot with 2508 and an average of 209.

    They are followed by Indonesia's Nadia Pramanik and Alisha Nabila (right, r-l) with 2501 (208.42) and Junior Team USA's Sarah Lokker and Liz Kuhlkin with 2449 (204.08).

    2014WYCSaraPelayoRaquelOrozco.jpg2014WYCKimJungUnYangSuJin.jpgRounding out the top 4 is the Mexican duo of Sara Pelayo and Raquel Orozco (left, l-r), who have totaled 2394 (199.50).

    World Youth Championships Singles gold medalist Yang Su Jin and Kim Jung Un and her team mate Kim Jung Un (right, r-l) managed 1193 and 1192 series for 2385 to lead Squad B but to miss the top 4 by nine pins.

    Izumune (2599) and Shimoide (2522) remained atop the girls' All Events leaderboard Kuhlkin held on to third place with 2494 with Yan in fourth at 2465.

    The 196 boys and 96 girls from 46 countries were split into four squads (A, B, C and D) to bowl six games on the 45 feet Mexico City lane conditioning pattern.

    Qualifying concludes Monday afternoon with Squad D after which the field will be trimmed to the top 4, who will bowl for the medals in the playoffs starting Monday at 5.30 p.m. Hong Kong time.
