New MAPFRE MSV Life National Bowling League underway

Turu’s Knights early leaders, top teams all register wins

The 1st Division of the National Bowling League, sponsored by MAPFRE MSV Life, kicked off last week at the Eden Superbowl for the start of another 18-week championship campaign.

Turu’s Knights and SMJ are the only two teams to register 8-0 victories, with the Knights placing top due to better pinfall.

Last year’s third placed team, Turu’s Knights, aims to improve on last season’s placing and started on the right footing, easily dispatching youth team XS. SMJ also did not find any real difficulty in beating Blitzkrieg in a potential mid-table fixture.

Perennial title-holders and Malta’s top two teams, okmalta.com and Fina, both started their campaign with 6-2 wins. Okmalta.com entertained newly promoted Supersonic and were stunned in game 1 of the series, only to come back in style and overturn the deficit in games 2 and 3, eventually also throwing the highest team series of the night. Fina also found the going tough against veterans Royal Shock, but also produced a good comeback to grind out a win by a mere 3 pins.

The only draw of the week was played out between BLEXR.com and Bank of Valletta. In a hard fought contest, BLEXR won the first game comfortably, whereas Bank of Valletta won games 2 and 3 but could not recover the overall deficit.

Bowlers of the week:

Mauro Anastasi (okmalta.com) 689

Tiziana Carannante (Turu’s Knights) 617

Team Malta gets a commemorative trophy and a gold medal

The British Tenpin Bowling Association organised the first ever team event in Margate’s Bowling Centre. Teams were composed of 4 athletes and divided in 4 categories from 1st through to 4th division according to averages.

Team Malta was composed of Shadon Psaila, Ayrton Ciangura,  Reuben Scerri and Nicholas Muscat and played in Division 2 category.  Each team had to play 2 blocks of 3 games each.

The competition was intense as our boys started their first 3 games on shaky grounds.  After the break and on freshly oiled lanes, they improved to stand within 2 pins of the best bowled team, and 23 pins behind 2nd.  However their last game was a collective team effort and with a big game succeeded in climbing to top position 87 pins ahead of 2nd placed team.

Nicholas Muscat also won highest game award for division 2.

The team was presented with a commemorative trophy as well as a gold medal by tournament director Steve Allen.
