"I am very happy and excited to be in the No.1 seed.  I can feel the pressure really rising right now, in these final stages, and I know I must be 200 percent focused now.  I have to focus on every shot.  I was very motivated before I got here and felt I would do well.  Now I am even more motivated.  "The people here are really supportive-not just the fans but also the bowlers who have been eliminated already.  I can use that to play even better." Marie Ramirez-Costa Rica, number 1 seed going into semi's. 

For the 3 game match between Costa Rica and Canada......do the count - 1 pin win for Canada, 2 pins win for Costa Rica and only 4 pins separating the winner and loser of the 3rd game! But a split in the second frame made the difference for Marie. 

And its Ryan-Ciach going into the finals against Pluhowsky, who made the finals in two close games against Jojo Canare of the Philippines.

The winner of the women's division of the World Cup, after two games in the final match against USA's Shannon Pluhowsky, is Kerrie Ryan-Ciach, Canada
