Rene Dalayon recently won the April monthly finals of the Metro Davao Tenpin Bowlers Association (METBA-DAVAO) at the SM Lanang Bowling Center.

A total of 14 bowlers qualified for the finals, including top qualifier and METBA-DAVAO President Atty. Joseph Flores.

The 14 finalists played a six-game series in the finals, which was topped by Dalayon with a score of 1195 pinfalls to earn a twice-to-beat advantage in the following round.

Dalayon was followed by Atty. Art Gamolo, who scored 1167 pinfalls; youth bowler Ma. Vivienne “Yeyen” Flores, who scored 1146 pinfalls; and Sonny Dimaano, who came up with 1134 pinfalls.

Dalayon, Gamolo, Flores, and Dimaano all qualified to proceed to the step-ladder stage of the tournament.

However, Dalayon’s twice-to-beat advantage came to use as he rose over the young gun in the championship match, scoring 216 total pinfalls against Flores’ score of 199.
