The final 4 consisted of all seniors including 2 women. Maniram was giving handicap to both women but stayed cleaned the entire match to make up the handicap deficit. Beverly kept the match close early, but when Maniram threw a 4 timer starting in the 8th frame, the final outcome was inevitable.

Darryl, who was giving everyone handicap, also bowled well but couldn’t throw a string of strikes to stay competitive.
