Shayna Ng climbs the ladder to win women’s World Cup


2012BWCChampionShaynaNg2.jpgShayna Ng of Singapore, seeded third, defeated top seeded Aumi Guerra of the Dominican Republic, two-games-to-one, to capture the women’s title at 48th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup Saturday, Dec. 1, at Sky Bowling Center in Wroclaw, Poland.

2012BWCKirstenPenny.jpgNg (pictured left), who led the 69-player field in qualifying and the Round of 24, slipped to third place in round robin match play despite having the highest average of 231.22 for 36 games.

In the opening match of the three-player stepladder finals, Ng met Kirsten Penny of England (right), who was in second place in all six rounds of the competition and finished match play just one pin ahead of the Singaporean with 230.42 average but a 5-3 won-loss record compared to Ng’s 4-4 (30 pins bonus per win).

2012BWCAumiGuerra2.jpgIn best-of-three games format, Ng swept Penny, 2-0, winning the first two games 246-215 and 231-191, to set up a title match with two-time defending champion Guerra, who was targeting to become the first women to win three title and the first player ever in the 48-year World Cup history to win three time in a row.

Guerra (left) took a 1-0 lead after the first game, 269-224, and was one win away from the three-peat. She followed the 269 with a 257 in game two, but Ng beat her by eight pins with 267 to level the match.

The Singaporean carried the momentum into the decider and defeated Guerra, 247-169, to wrap up the title. It was the second gold medal for Singapore in the World Cup after Jasmine Yeong-Nathan’s victory in the 44th edition in Hermosillo, Mexico, in the year 2008.
