Sarit Mizrachi and Oron Cohen (pictured l-r), both of bowling club Nesher, won the men's and women's division of the 25th Israeli National qualification tournament at Superbol bowling center in Rishon-Letzion and will represent their country in the 50th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup.

The 2014 BWC will be held November 1-9 at Sky Bowling Center in Wroclaw, Poland. It will be the third World Cup for Mizrachi after 2000 (Lisbon, Portugal) and 2010 (Toulon, France) and the first for Cohen.

The qualifying tournament drew 38 players who bowled 20 games of qualifying over five days to determine the top 8 men and top 8 women for the single-elimination finals.

The qualifying leaders, Omer Nehushtan and Mizrachi - automatically advanced to the championship match, while second seeded Cohen and Sara Aviram/Harlap received a first-round bye.

2014BWCISRQTop3Women.jpgThe quarterfinals and semifinals were contested in best-of-five format while the championship match was decided in three games with the total pinfall determining the winners.

The women's quarterfinals matches were one-sided. Lynne Fishler swept Sarit Mizrachi mother, Mali Mizrachi, and Yifat Tal swept Edva Eliav, three-games-to-none. Tali Itzhak eliminated Shir Azulay 3:1.

Tal (3-1 vs. Fishler) and Aviram/Harlap (3-2 vs. Itzhak) went on to win their semifinal matches to bowl Mizrachi for the title and the ticket to Wroclaw. Leading by mere 11 pins after two games, Mizrachi closed with a huge 268 game en route to cruise to victory with 660. Tal was second with 605 and Aviram/Harlap finished a distant third with 514.

The top three women: L-R Yifat Tal (2nd), Sarit Mizrachi (winner), Sara Aviram/Harlap (3rd). 

In the men's quarterfinals, Aviv Alfital ousted Ramat Gan teammate Tair Shechter, 3-1, while Nati Volpert made quick work of Moshe Shinman, 3-0. 2013 World Cup champion Or Aviram started the mission title defense with a 3-1 win against Amir Levy, 3-1.

Opposite to tournaments like the European Champions Cup, the men's and women's champions in the Bowling World Cup are not automatically invited to defend their titles but must qualify through the local qualifiers.

2014BWCISRQTop3Men.jpgAviram went on to defeat Volpert in the semis, 3-1, and Cohen escaped with a 3-2 win against Alfital. In the championship round, Cohen and Aviram were within seven pins after two games, while top-seeded Nehushtan fell behind early and never recovered.

Cohen earned his first World Cup berth with a final 223 game and 621 total. Aviram had to settle for second place (587) with Nehushtan in third (570). The top three men: L-R Or Aviram (2nd), Oron Cohen (winner), Omer Nehushtan (3rd).

The 50th QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup returns to Wroclaw, Poland, for the second time in three years. The tournament runs from November 1-9, 2014 at Sky Bowling Center.
