Paco the Hero

March 19th, 2011  |  Published in Breaking News

Plenty of ‘carry’ for Paco Rodriguez who hails from Madrid today, coming down the home straight with 235 to complete his sextet with 1395, disappointed by missing four 10-pins which cost the overall lead for Spain and a chance of a third 1400-plus.

It was thought, for a time, that Panu Nurmilo from Finland was the squad 9 champion as he posted 1388 at the other end of the house, a score that would have won most of the squads, but he ended runner-up to Rodriguez and his wife, Mari, placed sixth on this squad.

Defending champion Larsen still struggles and only finished in 24th place this time.

Unusually, 13 of the 28 competitors on this squad were women.

“I am very happy with my game today,” said Rodriguez, 28, in excellent English for his post squad interview, “I have been bowling really well in the last few weeks. If I had to say something bad about my game today it is that four times I missed the 10-pin and that is the reason I did not beat 1400. Anyway, I did not bowl any low games, all were 215 and over nd the high was 268. So I am very happy to wn the squad for a place in the finals.

Paco Rodriguez

“I have bowled the Catalonia Open many times and I won it maybe the second or third time, before it was an EBT event. I think I have only missed it once.

“Barcelona is the closest EBT event for me. It is a 600 km drive. The next closest is Paris but to get there I need to take a plane.

“I had to play our local league on Thursday night which finished around 10.30, so then had to drive straight to here and play at 9 in the morning. Today I was more relaxed and played much better. I’m bowling great and I hope that tomorrow I can be at the top.”
