Ryan Lalisang, Chang Yu Hsuan reach career milestones in ABF Tour Hong Kong

Ads


Ryan Lalisang of Indonesia and Chinese Taipei’s Chang Yu Hsuan reached different career milestones at the Asian Bowling Federation (ABF) Tour Hong Kong leg, which was staged at SCAA bowling center on Sunday, July 1.

Fresh off a second-place finish in the 2018 ABF Tour Macau leg, Lalisang (right), 37, averaged over 260 and won four matches to win his 10th career ABF Tour title. The 26-year-old Chang captured her first career title and the third for Chinese Taipei women in the history of the ABF Tour.

Lalisang finished 15th in the 44th Hong Kong Open barely making the cut to the top 16 who qualified for the ABFT Hong Kong leg.

In the Tour’s single-elimination finals decided by one game using the World Bowling Scoring System, Lalisang fired games of 266 (vs. 234 by Billy M. Islam, Indonesia), 256 (vs. 222 by Kenneth Chua, Philippines) and the tournament high game of 276 (vs. 265 by Annop Arromsaranon, Thailand) to advance to the title match against Sultan Almasri (left) of Saudi Arabia.

Though Lalisang finished with his lowest game, the Indonesia standout defeated the 20-year-old Saudi, 245-230, to reach another milestone in his career by winning his 10th ABF Tour title.

To reach the title match, Almasri edged Michael Mak of Hong Kong in the semi-final by one pin, 243-242. Newly-crowned Hong Kong Open champion, Wu Siu Hong of Hong Kong fell to compatriot James Lui in the first round, 231-259, and got eliminated.

Lalisang received a trophy along with US$500 with Almasri taking home US$300, while Arromsaranon and each Mak earned US$150. L-R Arromsaranon, Lalisang, Ms Vivien Lau, Almasri and Mak.

In the women’s finale, Chang Yu Hsuan (left) denied Hong Kong Open women’s masters champion Yanee Saebe‘s bid for back-to-back titles in Hong Kong, defeating the Thai, 203-195, thanks to a strike in the final frame. Chang is the third Chinese Taipei women’s champion on the ABF Tour.

Chang ousted Malaysia’s Sharon Koh in the opening round of 16, 223-200, then took care of Hong Kong’s Chan Shuk Han in the round of 8, 245-167, before she cruised to a 242-180 victory over Pan Yu Fen in an all-Taiwanese semi-final match.

In the other semi-final match, Yanee (right) came from behind to escape with a 235-222 win over Malaysia’s Radin Nu Najwa.

Chang got a trophy and US$500. Yanee received US$300 for second place, while Radin and Pan earned US$150 apiece for third and fourth place. Ms Vivien Lau, ABF Tour Chairman and World Bowling Secretary General, was on hand to present the trophies and prizes to the winners.

The 2018 Asian Bowling Federation Tour features four legs in East Asia (Thailand, Macau, Hong Kong and Chinese Taipei). The top 16 Asian men and women in the 2018 Hong Kong Open advanced to the ABF Tour Hong Kong leg.

The last stop of the 2018 Tour will be held at Southern Bowling Center in Koahsiung, Chinese Taipei, immediately following the Koahsiung International Open Bowling Championships which runs from July 2 to 7 at the same bowling center and serves as qualifying event.
