The younger sister, Jasmine defeated challenger and second-seed, Michelle Kwang, 236-205 to win the Ladies' National title in the final stepladder match. Jasmine, who topped the 12-game Masters roll-off earlier started the match with a double to take a small lead but soon found herself trailing Kwang after the later pulled back with a turkey.

A split in the fifth frame by Kwang was thought to be the end of the match but she made the spare to the roaring crowd that had gathered at Cathay Bowl SAFRA Tampines to witness the finale. However, another split in the eighth frame allowed the champion to confidently bring home four strikes-in-a-row to take the match and the title.

Despite winning the second match and knocking out third-seed, Geraldine Ng and winner of the first match, Amanda Ng, 222-209-204, Kwang settled

for second spot while Geraldine and Amanda finished third and fourth. Amanda, who was seeded sixth, won the first match defeating fourth-seed, Cherie Tan and fifth-seed and two time National champion, Catherine Kang, 217-214-201.

Jason Yeong Nathan completed a grand double and made history when the 22-year-old put up a superb effort to beat his challenger, Lee Yu Wen, 268-256 in the Men's final stepladder match. It was classical match which saw both bowlers matching strikes for strikes with Lee having the upper hand when he strung together 8 consecutive strikes.

But the cool Jason responded with sixth strikes-in-a-row to end the match first with 268 and forcing Lee to strike out. The crowd cry a loud sigh as Lee's 10th frame throw was looking good for the pocket but to the surprise of the crowd, it left a 4-9 split.

Lee had won both the first and second stepladder matches earlier. He took the first match defeating fourth and sixth-seed, Tan Eng Leng and Jack Wong, 247-220-235. The runner-up then went on to knock out second-seed,

"We are extremely happy for Gina for winning the title and living up to her reputation," said Mr Mike Lam, general manager for Bowling Academy in the Singapore Sports School.

Lim's international titles included a second in the 2004 Indonesia Open Graded B Masters, second in the Under-15 Masters in the Milo International Junior All-Stars in Malaysia and most recently, a Silver medal in the Jakarta Asian Schools Championship Team event.

Jasmine Yeong Nathan settled for second with a total of 2138 ahead of Cherie Tan in third with 2118. But the star of this morning's finals was undoubtedly Sabrina Lim, who shot the sixth perfect game, the only girl so far to do so in this championship.

Sabrina achieved her first-ever perfect 300 in the last and 10th game of the Masters finals and managed to move up from sixth to finish fourth and missed out on a trophy.

"I didn't know what position I was before the last game and I just tried my best to catch up," said the 19-year-old, who has been a member of the National youth since 2000. "I know I was not amongst the top 3 but I did my best. I'm so happy to be able to score my first perfect game.
