“Diamond Flush 2.0″ won all seven points from Team 3, the leaders, and are now just 12 points behind them in 5th place. Team 3 leads Team 4 by six points, “The Big Red One” by eight points, and “The Chat Line” by nine points.
I’ll post a full recap of the day when NEBA makes a post somewhere, but I wanted to mention that Mike Berube started the 9 AM NEBA squad today with a 300 game, followed in Game 4 by Scott Widmer. I got Widmer’s video, but, as I’m getting used to a new camcorder, I didn’t think I could use it.
Good bowling guys! :D
Both of these came to my attention tonight, so I’ll mention them both here: Henry Webber posted a 290 game Thursday night in the Thursday Handicap Doubles league, and another one tonight in the Rhythm & Bowling league. Good bowling Henry! :D
After the doubles tournament, there was the 6 PM NEBA squad, and scoring was at about a medium pace, with the squad cut turning out to be +83. There were three Westgate Lanes bowlers who made the squad cut: Ed Roberts, Stephen Major, and Stephen Dale Jr.; for Stephen Major, it was his first NEBA cash, and his prize will be deposited into his SMART account. Darrell Guertin, the squad leader, also had the high game of the squad with a 285.
Good bowling! :D
A busy tournament Saturday got started today with the Bay State Open doubles event, which Sean Richard and Danny Khuu won over AJ Voisine and Paris Cook by a score of 478-442 (with handicap). Alex Major and Hakim Emannuel were the members of the other Westgate team in the head-to-head finals.
Sean and Danny got into the head-to-head finals with some big scores, particularly in the first game of qualifying, where Sean had a 300 and Danny a 265 for a 565, a doubles game that is reportable as a team honor score. Paris Cook also had a 290 game to help his team qualify.
Great bowling, guys! :D
I didn’t want it to look like I’m rubbing a certain series bowled at Westgate Lanes in, but I also thought it might be worth mentioning that Jason Correia bowled games of 295, 300, and 296 for an 891 series tonight in the American Men league at Holiday Lanes in Westport, a new house and Southeastern Mass. association record, and what would have been the new state record until last month. Fine bowling just the same, Jason, and congrats! :D
Congrats to Dan Esdale, with games of 279, 264, and 279 tonight for an 822 series in the Westgate Mixed league. :D
After an error in the tabulation of the scores in the Senior division of last Saturday’s Adult/Junior doubles tournament was corrected, Aaron Major and Paris Cook were declared the official winners of the division with the score noted in my earlier post (1,508). Corey Marvel and Adam Johndrow’s adjusted 1,501 score was still good for second place.
My Week 28 bowling, frame-by-frame (Linked to BowlSK sheet)
After being sick for a few days, I was expecting just about anything in my performance spectrum tonight, and was happy it was at the higher end. Instead of losing steam as the night progressed, my scores improved each game, with my 211 third game also being clean, something else that has been rather rare this season.
Average (84 games): 167
Average for last 9 games: 179
Next week’s AVG+1 score: 579
After Barry had two good games, I actually ended up high on the pair tonight, with Barry’s two good games being the ones we won for three points (with the point for total).
Last week in brackets, I made three finals, finishing second to Carol Andersen in two of them and second to Mike DiBenedetto in the other for the $1 profit on the week.
After winning two points from “Bowl Pack”, “Turkey Hunters” now stand in 16th place, 10.5 points behind a tie for first between “Y Not Us” and “Bowling Stones”, who lead “Sweet Rolls” by 1.5 points and “Knock Em Down” by 2.5 points. “The Doables” are the opponents tonight.
I also had to miss running brackets for the first time outside of weather this season last night, and Tim Larkin may have wished it was a normal Coke league night for me last night for one game, as he posted what I’m told was his 7th career 300 game. WTG Tim! I also recently replaced my camcorder, so I did miss an opportunity to use the new one, too.
I had to miss the first Senior Eastern Mass. Bowlers Association event at Westgate Lanes yesterday, but Ed Roberts was kind enough to pass along results; he didn’t give scores, so I’ll post the list he gave me as is:
- Ed Roberts
- Ed Brabant Jr.
- Don Fournier
- Craig Asselin
- John Hayes Jr.
- John Awalt Jr.
Congrats to all! :D
“Diamond Flush 2.0″ won the first game against “The Chat Line” and hung on for total and three points, putting us still in 5th place, 19 points behind Team 3, who lead both “The Big Red One” and Team 4 by 13 points.
NEBA posted on their Facebook page that Beaten Path will be the lane condition in use for next weekend’s event at Westgate Lanes.
I was hoping to be at Westgate for the SEMBA event today, but I wasn’t feeling well, so I had to back out. I hope to catch up with Ed Roberts for results.
And here are the results of the first No-Tap Shootout today:
- AJ Voisine 856
- Shirley Major 791
- Hakim Emmanuel 790
- Rick Fallon 787
There were 24 entries.
Junior decided to run a second shootout today, but I couldn’t stay for the second one. I will try to get the results tomorrow, however.
I noted in my last post that there was more coming on Hakim Emmanuel, and here it is: “Mr. 900″ threw his first honor score since the 900 series barely more than a month after the fact, another 300 game in the Adult/Junior doubles tournament today. The coincidences with the 900 series were inescapable, however: The 300 game came on the same pair as the 900 series and was also thrown with an Infrared Vibe, though we don’t know if it was the actual 900 ball because Hakim has two Infrared Vibes now. The 300 game was the only chance he had on 47 & 48, however, as the bowlers moved after each game in the tournament. I forgot what Hakim had in the other two games, but I think I remember seeing a 736 series in the posted standings, and will comment on this post when I can get a chance to verify it.
Congrats again Hakim! :D
The unofficial results of today’s Adult/Junior doubles tournament:
- Corey Marvel & Adam Johndrow 1,520
- Aaron Major & Paris Cook 1,508
- Taylor Harris & Sonji Paige 1,344
- Quentin Coleman & Hakim Emmanuel 1,553
Congrats to all, but there’s more on Hakim coming in my next post. ;)
I’ve recently made the decision to broaden the scope of the “Bowling Streaming/Videos” sidebar list to include audio, so a couple of links to Internet radio shows and podcasts were moved from the general “Bowling Sites” list to the streaming list, but I did want to add a couple of other interview shows and/or podcasts. One is David Waswo’s “The Bowlers Show”, which recently had “Mr. 900″ Hakim Emmanuel on, and there are links to both the homepage (with the live stream link) and the interview podcasts (searchable). The other is Kegel.net’s “Phantom Radio”, and while the most recent show is on Kegel’s page, I am going to link the archives, which are on a separate site.
I thought it would be interesting for my readers to see how Hakim Emmanuel’s 900 series looked on the Patriots league’s standing sheets. The first one is the BowlerExpress standing sheet dated March 5, which is the first sheet for that league I saw on the site since the 900 series because of a problem Westgate Lanes has been having with connectivity to the site. The other is the standing sheet put out by league secretary Joe Inglis the following week, which he kindly gave me a copy of and that I have recently been able to scan; thanks Joe! :D
On Sunday, the Mass. USBC Youth Association conducted the annual Youth Leader Doubles tournament at Westgate Lanes, with the results having been posted here. I will note the champions here, with Westgate Lanes bowlers noted with an asterisk (and pardon me for getting the format of the tournament wrong on the calendar):
11 & Under Boys Handicap: Michael Ku & Patrick McMahon
11 & Under Mixed Handicap: Jessica Blyth* & Dylan Major*
12 & Over Boys Handicap: Ryan Giroux & Samuel Blanchette
12 & Over Girls Handicap: Jessica McGrath & Abigail Purches
12 & Over Mixed Handicap: Taylor Harris* & Ethan Reyes*
Scratch: Andrew Hall & Kevin Thibeault*
Again, congrats to all! :D
