Top eight women qualifiers for third round

We now know the top eight players for the third round in the 43rd QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup in the Kontinent Bowling Centre in St Petersburg, Russia.

Ghislaine van der Tol from Utrecht in the Netherlands is in the lead on 6871, 136 ahead of Sweden's Helen Johnsson who is in 8th place. The complete list of players in the third round is:

Ghislaine van der Tol Netherlands  6871
Sharon Kohn Malaysia  6858
Sun Hee Lee Korea  6842
Ann-Maree Putney Australia  6801
Tina Hulsch Germany  6770
Aumi Guerra Dominican Republic  6742
Piritta Kantola Finland  6741
Helen Johnsson Sweden  6735

The best set of eight games was bowled by Tina Hulsch from German with 1783. In addition, Sun Hee Lee equalled the tournament high game of 279, also bowled by Aumi Guerra, as previously reported.

Of these eight players, four have appeared in a Bowling World Cup round of eight before: Ann-Maree Putney, Aumi Guerra, Piritta Kantola and Helen Johnsson and the last three of those made this same stage of the tournament last year in Caracas, Venezuela.

The ladies will now bowl an eight game round robin, one match against each of the other competitors with a position round to finish. There will be thirty pins bonus for a win, so there is still all to play for.

The next round will be played tomorrow, Friday November 9th with the top three advancing to the step-ladder final on Saturday 10th.
