Asian Games: S'pore bowler Cherie Tan qualifies for Women's Masters finals

GUANGZHOU, China: Singapore is in line for a 17th medal after bowler Cherie Tan fought her way into the stepladder finals for the Women's Masters.

After starting Block 2 in third position, Cherie found herself in fourth place going into the 16th and final match in the Masters qualifiers.

Cherie was 19 pinfalls adrift of Malaysia's Sharon Koh who occupied third spot at the time, and it was Koh that she defeated 227-216 in the final game to move into medal position.

With 10 bonus pins awarded for each win, Cherie's final total of 3,466 pinfalls was a mere two pinfalls better than Koh, guaranteeing the 22-year old at least the Bronze medal.

The Women's Masters stepladder finals will start at 5.35pm, with Cherie meeting South Korea's Choi Jin-A in a one-game roll-off, with the winner locking in at least a Silver medal.

Should Cherie win, she will go on to meet another South Korean Hwang Sun-ok in a two-game roll off for the Gold Medal.
