The top 16 players in All-Events bowled two eight-game blocks of match play on Saturday and Sunday to cut to the top three players for the stepladder finals.

Shayna Ng was 73 pins behind in second place with 3424 (9-7), immediately followed by Daphne Tan, who earned the last spot for the finals with 3418 (9-7).

According to SEA Games rules, no NOC is allowed to win all three medals in a discipline. As a consequence, the bronze medal was awarded to sixth-place Tannya Roumimper (right) of Indonesia (3379; 7-9). Seventh place Liza Del Rosario (3378), Philippines, missed the bronze medal by one pin.

2015SEAGDaphneTan4.jpg2015SEAGShaynaNg.jpgCherie Tan was already denied a bronze medal in Singles as her sister Daphne and Jazreel Tan finished 1 and 2.

In the opening one-game match, Singles champion Daphne Tan (left) easily defeated Trios gold medalists Shayna Ng (right), 223-162, to secure a medal, while Ng walked away empty-handed.

In the gold medal match in two-games, total pins format, Jazreel took an insurmountable 89-pin lead with a 258-169 win in the first game and cruised to the title and her first gold medal of the Games with another 258-184 win in game two and 516-353 overall. Daphne received the silver medal.

2014MWCAlexLiew.jpg2015SEAGAhmadMuaz.jpgMuhd Rafiq Ismail, who previously won the gold medals in Singles, Trios and Team, averaged 228.31 and won 11 of 16 matches for 3763 total including 110 bonus pins to lead the men’s field by 223 pins.

Yannaphon Larp-apharat of Thailand improved one spot on the long pattern to earn the No. 2 seed with 3540 (10-6). 2011 SEA Games Masters champion Adrian Ang beat out Annop Arromsaranon of Thailand for the third and last spot in the stepladder by 26 pins, 3488 to 3462.

Alex Liew (above left) of Malaysia, who was in third place heading into the last game, slipped to fifth place with 3451 behind a 167 game in the position round match against Ang. Ang’s compatriot Ahmad Muaz (above right), who was in second place after the first block on medium oil yesterday, slipped to seventh place after averaging 191.88 on long oil.

2015SEAGAdrianAng2.jpg2015SEAGMuhdRafiqIsmail5.jpgThe men’s semifinal match was in sharp contrast to the women’s semifinal, as Yannaphon prevailed by just one pin over Ang, 246-245. Ang (left) threw three strikes in the 9th and 10th frame but finished with a seven-count to open the door for Yannaphon. The Thai needed 9-spare, strike to win the match and that was exactly what he did.

Vying for his fourth gold medal in the Games, Muhd Rafiq Ismail (right) rolled his lowest game of the event to fall behind by 19 pins after the first game of the championship match, 178-197. Yannaphon rode the momentum by winning game two, 217-203, and the match, 414-381.

Yannaphon won the first gold medal for Thailand in the Games. Ismail and Ang took silver and bronze.
