THE Barredo brothers of Dagupan City hit it big anew in tenpin bowling when they competed with the country’s best during the 23rd Oktoberfest SLETBA (Sta. Lucia East Tenpin Bowling Association) Open Championships held Oct. 11-20 at the Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall in Cainta, Rizal.
Seventeen-year-old Nathan Matthew Tabayoyong Barredo, a senior high school student of the St. Albert the Great School in Malued, Dagupan City, inspired his city mates when he finished first runner-up in the Men’s Classified Masters Finals, carding a total of 2210 pinfalls.
He was only 66 pinfalls shy of the eventual winner Kim Limpo of TBAM Prima who carded 2276.
A mainstay of the Dagupan Tenpin Bowlers’ Incorporated, Nathan Matthew struggled to ninth place among the 33 finalists, from a pool of 86 bowlers who competed in the semi-final round in the Men’s Classified Masters Division.
Nathan Matthew also placed third in the Majors Division during the 4th Philippine Bowling Quarterly Championship held at E-Lanes Bowling Center in San Juan City on October 27.
In the Classified Masters Finals, Nathan Matthew’s younger brother, Antonio Luis T. Barredo, 16, a Grade 10 student also of St. Albert the Great School and also of DATBI, bagged the second runner-up honor with 2158 pinfalls after placing 19th in the semi-final round.
The Barredos are grandsons of Dr. Romulo Tabayoyong of Laoac, Pangasinan and Dagupan City.
Third runner-up in that tournament was Ian Dychangco of TBAM Prima with 2148 while Nicco Agujo, also of TBAM Prima was fourth runner-up with 2146. (Leonardo Micua)
