WYC2010 - M'sian Girls Team bagged Bronze medal

(Report by BC Cheah from Tali Bowl, Helsinki, Finland)

It's curtain down for our young Team Malaysia Girls' campaign in the World Youth Championships 2010 at Helsinki, Finland today.

In the Semi-Finals of the Team event, our young bowlers came off the block with impressive score-lines as both Siti Safiyah and Sin Li Jane reeled turkey strikes while Fatin Syazliana registered a double strike and Jacqueline Sijore kept a clean sheet at half way mark. At this stage, Team Malaysia held a slight advantage lead over arch-rivals, Team Singapore.

A more experienced Team Singapore started to gain momentum and inched closer as they game progressed. It was a ding dong battle as both sides traded strike for strike till the 8th frame when Team Singapore exerted their energy to storm home with a 860 - 769 victory margin. Team Malaysia's Siti Safiyah contributed 197, Fatin Syazliana 184, Jaqueline Sijore 172, and anchor lady Sin Li Jane 216 in the one game Semi-Final match.

Korea , the top seed, defeated England in the other Semi Final with 816 vs 756, and took the Gold medal after disposing challenger Singapore in the Team Final.

“Our Girls bowled their best, but were not strong enough to match the in-form Singaporeans.” said Team Manager after the Semi-Final.”

Later in the afternoon, Sin Li Jane, the only Malaysian in the top 16 Masters Final was engaged in an epic battle with 11th seed Tannya Roumimper of Indonesia. Seeded 6th, Li Jane chose to start with the "Short Oil" pattern in the "Best of 5 games" knock-out duel. Li Jane lost the first game 200-211; levelled the score-line with a 215-202 in the "Long Oil" pattern second game. Tannya regained the lead with a 233-202 in 3rd game and Li Jane forced the match into the decider with a well fought 247-210 4th game. In the decider, both bowlers displayed their true grit and fighting spirits, trading punch for punch till the game went down to the wire. After a double strike in 8th & 9th frames, Li Jane needed another strike to consolidate her position. Much to her dismay, her solid 1-3 pocket delivery saw the stubborn 10 pin stood unscatched. Tannya got the lady luck when pins action assisted her to strike home and wrapped up the game 225-213 to earn a hard fought 3-2 victory margin.

Jane was the most consistent female bowler in the Malaysian Team with 1288 in the Singles, 1176 in the Doubles and 1336 in the Team. She finished 6th in the All-Events and was the only Malaysian to make the Masters' Finals in Helsinki. Korea’s Moon-Jeong Kim won the All-Events Gold medal with a total 3922 , just 17 pins ahead of 2nd placed Hayley White from England while Diana Zavjalove of Latvia clinched the Bronze medal with 3899.
