Per the post above, Westgate league bowler Kevin Kelliher bested Corey Hanson, 277-264 (with handicap), to win the Bay State Open’s Mulligan Singles event last Sunday at Gardner Ten Pins. The tournament’s format allowed bowlers to redo one first ball in any frame (including second or third ball in the 10th following a strike) of each game.
Congrats Kevin! 🙂
Per the post above, Westgate bowler Chris Zalewski was one of the division winners of the second annual Bristol-Plymouth USBC Youth Championships, which were held last Sunday at North Bowl Lanes. Other Westgate bowlers winning scholarships were Brenda Murphy, Aiden Delehoy, Jessica Blyth, and Corey Major (who finished second to Zalewski in the 181 & over division). Good bowling!
And, finally, Aaron Major figured in the His & Hers high scores again with a 279 game. Nice bowling!
Meanwhile, in the Rhythm & Bowling league, Cindy Cabral continued her good bowling with a 670 set, while Shonta Cooks checked in with a 266 game, per the high score lists. WTG!
Sunday night, in the Sunday Niters league, Patrick Dolan continued to find a good game with a 275, per the weekly high scores. Nice going!
Last week’s recap in the Patriots league shows that Sean Richard went 277-266-279 for an 822 set. The high game list shows that Hakim Emmanuel and Danny Khuu also each had a 279 game, and Jayme Silva Jr. a 778 set (series can be accessed from second link via drop-down).
Nice bowling all around. 🙂
Found out about this late, but here are the results of the Adult/Junior doubles tournament on Nov. 23:
- Ethan Reyes & Sean Richard 1,409
- Chris Zalewski & Brendan Litchfield 1,408
Good bowling! 🙂
The night after Aaron Major’s 300 game in His & Hers, his cousin Stephen followed up with one in the Trio + One league at Town Line in Malden, per the recap. Nice bowling! 🙂
I also noticed in the top scores that Michael Simmons had a 278 game last Friday night in the TNBA league. Good bowling!
And a nice night Sunday night for Cindy Cabral, with a 654 set in the Rhythm & Bowling league, per the recap. Just don’t ask her what happened in the last game. 😉
A look at the top bowlers of the week shows Patrick Dolan had a 277 game this past weekend in the Sunday Niters league. Nice bowling! 🙂
Chalk up another one for Aaron Major, as the recap shows that he had his second 300 in three weeks last night in the His & Hers league. WTG! 🙂
Ralph Dahlgren has subbed at least once this year in the Patriots league, so, technically, he’s still a Westgate bowler, but, last night in one of his regular leagues, the Westport Trios at Holiday Lanes, he had a 300 game, the scoresheet of which was captured by Sean Richard in the photo above. Nice bowling! 🙂
Per the post above by the bowling center, cousins Stephen & Aaron Major, the 2016 USBC Youth Open doubles champions, won their first adult doubles tournament by taking the inaugural Turkey Doubles last night at Broadway Bowl in Ft. Edward, NY. The Majors defeated Steve Wagoner & Craig Taylor 247-237 in the Baker-format final match, in which Stephen delivered the clinching double in the 10th frame.
Congratulations guys! 🙂
Per the recap on LeagueSecretary.com, Aaron Major connected for a 300 for the second week in a row en route to a 778 set.
Also, by suggestion, I’m relaxing the thresholds for reporting scores, and this allows me to recognize Manny Silva, with a 279 game (his recap is on the page previous to the one I linked for Aaron).
Nice bowling to both. 🙂
Last night, Jayme Silva Sr., a veteran SEMASS bowler, recorded his first 300 game in a Westgate league, the Patriots league (not surprisingly). Jennifer Mydlack sent me the video below of the last shots:
As an aside, Alex Major proposed to his girlfriend and teammate, Samantha Gustin, as she was finishing up for the night (her team had her bowl anchor last night to set it up). It was the first time, including my former bowling stint, that I’d been witness to a marriage proposal at Westgate. Congrats to the couple.
A quick shout-out also to Sandi Litchfield, who had a 279 game Friday night in the TNBA league. 🙂
Sean Richard sent me the photo above, which shows that Aaron Major went 300-279-248 for an 827 set last night in the His & Hers league. Aaron previously had an 814 in the league and an 813 in Raynham, but this was his first 300 of the season, the final shot of which Sean Richard also got this recording of.
As announced in the above post, Sean Richard won a record 6th Bay State Open title Saturday in the “Throw the Low” (bowl four games, drop low score of the four) event at Walnut Hill Bowl in Woonsocket, RI, winning the final match 261-202 (with handicap) over Bill Josephson. Sean posted on Facebook that he was actually an alternate for match play, and got in when bowlers left thinking they’d missed the cut. It just goes to show you that it pays to stick around a tournament until cuts are announced.
I’d shared the video of the final match on Facebook, but I’ll include it below.
WTG Ka$h! 🙂
As the photo shows, Hakim Emmanuel had a slow start, but finished with a 300 game in the team event of the TNBA East regional tournament, taking place at AMF Norfolk Lanes in Virginia. It is Hakim’s first perfect game away from Westgate Lanes.
Nice bowling! 🙂
Aaron Major messaged me last night that he had put up 256-279-278 for an 813 in the Thursday Night Mixed league at Ryan’s Amusements in Raynham, which should be his first score in a center away from Westgate that is still in the Bristol-Plymouth association. I was also able to confirm it on LeagueSecretary.com. Congrats! 🙂
Note: Aaron bowls with Barry & Donald Wood, two of my former Brunswick Mixed teammates.
Brian Egan reported to me last night that he had a 300 game the other night in Malden, which I was able to confirm on LeagueSecretary.com. Congrats! 🙂
I shared the unofficial results of the Rhode Island USBC city tournament on Facebook Monday, but overlooked that Sean Richard had a 299 in the singles event, which apparently was bowled Saturday. Good work! 🙂
The photo above shows the recap of Sean Richard’s 804 set last night in the Westport Trios league at Holiday Lanes. Nice bowling! 🙂
Last night in the Patriots league saw Keith Kaestner strike 12 times in the third game and Mike “Sensae” Reed get close to one with a 297 game. For Keith, it had been two years between perfect games.
Congrats to both! 🙂
Belated congrats to Ed Godino III, who had a 290 game last week in the Brunswick Mixed league. 🙂
He lost his 800 bid in the final frame last night, but Sean Richard did start the night with the first 16. Good bowling! 🙂
Per a report he gave me on Facebook, Kevin Kelliher, who bowls in the Pepsi and Patriots leagues at Westgate Lanes, bowled his first perfect game in tonight’s NEBA qualifying squad at AMF Auburn Lanes. Great bowling! 🙂
Per the above post, BPUSBC Hall of Famer Sean Richard teamed with Shonta Cooks to win the association’s inaugural mixed doubles tournament last weekend at Boston Bowl Hanover. Congrats! 🙂
Sean Richard relayed me a report from Brian Gaskill last night that Brian Egan had 300 in the first game and the front six in the second in Malden, but the follow-up soon after reported that a 10 pin stopped his run. Great game, anyway! 🙂
