Meanwhile 2015 Asian School Doubles bronze medallist, Charmaine Chang breezed past fourth-seed and challenger, Nur Hazirah Bte Ramli of Abas/Sarawak, Malaysia, 255-211 to win her first international youth title.
Both title contenders started their match brilliantly with three consecutive strikes each. But the Singaporean added another three as Nur Hazirah spared her next three frames to trail Chang by 34 pins.
Chang made no mistake by sparing her next three frames before another three strikes in the tenth frame. Although Nur Hazirah doubled in the eighth and ninth frames, her final frame did not matter to the outcome of the match.
The Singaporean won RM18,000 as champion while, Nur Hazirah, who outclassed second-seed, Nurul Alyssa Junaidi and third-seed, Ameera Dato Aznel, 279-210-188 in an all-Malaysian first stepladder match, picked up RM10,000.
