Lagana shot to the top of his group made up of 25 players in the qualifiers bowling his personal best 6 games series of 1274, and held on to second place after step 1 to go into step 2.

The top 4 played 1 game each, with the low player eliminated. Kayden rolled a 185 to pass through into top 3; however a 193 in the next game was not enough as Jack Blyth and eventual winner Ben Kristensen bowled games of 247 and 225 respectively.
