Meanwhile, Apple Posadas gave Philippines another grand double when she outclassed Lovella Catalan in another all-Filipinas final, 258-199 to win the women's crown. Posadas, who won the 2005 Philippines Leg eliminated newly-crowned Philippines Open champion, Krizzah Tabora, 205-178 in the first semi-finals match to reach the final.
"When I knocked down five strikes in a row, I thought I had sealed the victory," said the 22-year-old Posadas. "But when Lovella (Catalan) shot a turkey, I was a bit worried. I was only relieved when I managed to followed it up with another three strikes.
The champion also defeated her younger sister, Lara, 200-159 in Round 2 and Dyan Coronacion, 226-205 in the first round. Catalan had earlier defeated Alexis Sy, 191-161 in the second semi-final match.
