Malaysia preserved their lead after the fifth game and ended the sixth game with 431 to finished top of the pack with 2575. Venezuela held on to second position with 2478. There was a keen tussle for the third and fourth positions amongst Korea, Chinese Taipei and the recovring second Malaysian pair.
But Germany's Nadine Geissler and Brigit Poeppler stormed home with a splendid game of 465 to clinch third spot with 2459 while Korea held on to fourth position with 2448. Afifah and Roslan missed the top four by 4 pins to round out the top 5 with 2446.
The local favourite, Team USA's first pair of Stefanie Johnson and Shannon Pluhowsky finished well off the pace in a disappointing 26th position out of 43 pairs in this opening squad. The second squad will contest their Doubles event after lane maintenance.
The top 4 finishers from the combined scores will make the cut for the semi-finals which will be held thereafter.
