27th July, Shanghai: Top three positions in Squad B remained unchanged after the completion of the second block of qualifying rounds at the 2019 Storm U22 China International Youth Bowling Championships with Yuma Haraguchi of Japan in the lead.

Haraguchi continued where he left off starting with 234 in his fifth game to extend his lead over Boco Wong of Hong Kong from three to 25 pins as Wong managed only 212. Abner Loo of ABAS, Malaysia also started well with 235 to stay in third.

2019 Asian School Doubles silver medallist, Keith Mark Siu Ki posted a stunning 267 to leapfrog into fourth position. The Japanese up his pace with a sizzling 267 to stretch his lead even further to 69 pins after the sixth game.

Wong and Loo continued to give chase staying in second and third while Mark added another massive game of 262. A 246 game in the seventh appeared to allow Haraguchi to retain his stronghold but he stumbled to a poor 164 in his final game.
