National champions Sue Abela and Mauro Anastasi took overall victory in the end of year Winter Cup.
This end of year event was a simple six-game total that saw 10 women and 26 men taking part.
National champion Abela won the ladies’ event finishing with a superb 278 last game meaning she ended with a strong 1,322, almost 100 pins ahead of the two lefties, Tiziana Carannante and Cynthia Frendo Duca.
The men’s section had the usual very intense competition from the very beginning. However, Anastasi pulled ahead at the end to finish with a 220 average, ahead of OkMalta.com team-mate Dennis Mercieca and Under 23 champion Matthew Magro.
With this last performance, Anastasi ended the year with the highest ever composite average for a Maltese player of 217 on close to 240 official games.
