The Northeast Amateur Tournament posted on their Facebook page that Brian Pinard & John Doran won their handicap doubles event yesterday at Westgate Lanes after defeating Westgate bowlers Chuck Paige & Matt Richard, 448-442 (with handicap), in the final match. Among the other teams qualifying for head-to-head match play were Sean Richard & Jim Ferguson, AJ Voisine (with partner Jayme Silva), Ed Grossett & Mike “Sensae” Reed, and Stan Gibbs & Stephen Major.

In qualifying, Chuck Paige put up a 245-287-268 effort for 800 on the button, which was his first 800 series, and Sean Richard posted 279-225-300 for an 804. Sean’s 300 was his 93rd, and my video of the last strike is below:

In that game, Sean teamed with Jim Ferguson for a 558 doubles game, over the USBC team score reporting threshold.

Congrats all around! 🙂
