Sean Richard posts 801 in Monday doubles

“$eany Ka$h” hasn’t had 300s since his release from Radical staff, but he’s making up for those with a bigger number…800, with Sean putting up 289-268-244 in the first three games of the doubles league tonight for an 801. WTG! 🙂

Khuu posts 811, Hester, Egan 300, Hamilton 299 in Monday doubles

I usually don’t hang around the Monday Summer Doubles league all night unless the Red Sox are idle, and I was happy they were tonight, because there was plenty of scoring. Danny Khuu had the biggest “number”, by way of posting 278-277-256 for an 811 set, but there were also a couple of 300 games, one by Jon “Hoss” Hester, and the other by Brian Egan. I’ll share Hester’s video first, as I “owe him one” for not sharing his UBA scores:

And now Egan’s:

Finally, association Hall of Famer Bob Hamilton stuck a 10 pin in one of his games for a 299.

Nice bowling tonight! 🙂

Stephen Major shoots 300/854 for Brockton youth record

Stephen Major’s youth days may be coming to an end, but he’s at least going out with a bang, as, tonight, in the Adult/Junior league, he posted 289-300-265 for an 854 set, which is believed to be a new Brockton youth association record. It was also memorable for him because he’d never had an 800 series until tonight.

WTG Steve! 🙂

Bob Hamilton rolls 300 in Wednesday Summer Mixed

Joe Bourhill has had the high game in the Wednesday summer league up until now, but one of his teammates in that league, association Hall of Famer Bob Hamilton, went one pin better, with a 300 game last week. Nice going! 🙂

Mike Peirce rolls 299 in Adult/Junior

It’s been a rather quiet season in the Adult/Junior league this summer, but adult Mike Peirce had a 299 second game last Thursday night. WTG! 🙂

Wayne Andrews throws 297 in Monday Summer Doubles

Thought I’d mention a couple of scores from last night, but only one was a real honor score, that being Wayne Andrews’ 297 game. The non-honor score I found notable was a 799 for the first three games by Danny Khuu, with a solid 9 at the end of the third game thwarting the 800 bid.

Good bowling! 🙂

Anthony Pepe wins 7th NEBA title at Westgate

As noted in the post above, Anthony Pepe defeated Jon Van Hees, 258-202, in a battle of PBA Tour champions to capture his 7th NEBA title yesterday at Westgate Lanes. 142 entries competed on the Kegel Great Wall of China pattern, with Brian Gaskill, Danny Khuu, Keith Tantillo, and Ed Roberts the Westgate bowlers who cashed.

It turned out that NEBA couldn’t stream match play due to difficulties with Westgate’s wifi, but Keith Kaestner stepped in to stream the final match on Westgate Lanes’ Facebook page. If NEBA posts a video later, as they’ve said, it will replace the video from the Westgate page embedded below:

There were a few other scores during qualifying, as Pepe threw a 300 game, as did Jeremy Cyr, and Gino Beniamino added a 299 game. I missed Cyr’s 300 game, but did record the last strike of Pepe’s, which is below:

For those who were wondering what my family obligation was, it was my little sister’s 50th birthday, but I managed to squeeze in the celebration after watching most of yesterday’s qualifying, returning from that in time to see the final match.

Thanks go to NEBA for putting on another great tournament at Westgate. 🙂

Tyler Perry, John Kirker shoot 300, Scott Hubert 296 in NEBA

As was my plan, I was around for the NEBA squad tonight, and saw three notable games, a couple of 300 games by Tyler Perry and John Kirker, and a 296 by Scott Hubert. I got video of both 300 games, starting with Tyler Perry’s:

And John Kirker’s:

Nice going guys! 🙂

My plan for tomorrow has been altered a bit, with my family meeting me later in the day, so I should be around for the 9 AM squad and at least most of the 12:30 squad, but I’ll probably miss match play. If I have scores to post, those will be done when I get home, and a wrap-up post with whatever NEBA does on Facebook will come later.

Westgate Warriors win UBA division playoffs; Khuu bowls 300/803, Yandek 299

I’ll just leave the recaps here:

2017 division semifinals recap

2017 division finals recap

After a hard-fought 24-16 win over Mop Nation Militia in the semifinals, the Westgate Warriors secured the UBA New England North title today at East Providence Lanes with a 34-6 victory over the top seed, The Machine. The standouts in the final match were Danny Khuu, who shot 246-300-257 for an 803, and Matt Yandek, who posted a 299 game en route to a 796 effort.

Next for the Warriors are the All America Conference playoffs, which will take place next Saturday at Hudson Lanes in Jersey City, NJ.

Additional information: The Westgate Warriors will bowl matches vs. Dynasty (MD/DC/VA Division) and Hounds of War (New England South) on Saturday. The format is a double-elimination round-robin, with a team winning the conference by winning their first two matches (21+ points). If all three teams go 1-1, the first elimination match will be between the teams with the two lowest point totals.

Update: Zach Thompson got video of the last strike of Danny Khuu’s 300 game in the finals, which he’s allowed me to share here:

Joe Bourhill bowls 299 in Wednesday Summer Mixed

He has been spending his first season at Westgate, and I’m mentioning him for a score for the first time: Joe Bourhill shot 299 last night in the Wednesday summer league. Good job! 🙂

“Mr. 900” shoots 300 in Monday Summer Doubles

He hasn’t quite tripled the total of 300 games from Feb. 19, 2015, but “Mr. 900” Hakim Emmanuel did get close to it with #8 tonight in the summer doubles league. Because it was available, Shawn Hagan’s video of the last shot is below (Shawn is Hakim’s partner in this league):

Nice going Hakim! 🙂

Sean Richard slams 801 in Somerset

“$eany Ka$h” struck again tonight in the summer doubles league in Somerset, going 278-256-267 for an 801, his second 800 set in as many weeks in that league. Nice going! 🙂

Zach Thompson bowls 299 in Monday Summer Doubles

Zach Thompson posted on his Facebook last night that he had a 299 game in the third game, and 814 for three games, but that was starting with Game 2 of four. Nice bowling, still! 🙂

Sean Richard shoots 299/812 in Somerset

These should be Sean Richard’s first scores after his official Brockton Bowling Association Hall of Fame induction: He had 277-238-299 tonight in Steph’s Summer Doubles league in Somerset for an 812 set. Nice going! 🙂

Aaron Major posts 298 in Adult/Junior

Last Thursday in the Adult/Junior league, a more familiar name made some noise, as Aaron Major, home from his freshman year at Wichita St., posted a 298 game. WTG! 🙂

Chuck Kalasinsky bowls 300 in Monday Summer Doubles

I’m not sure if this is his first honor score, but I believe I’m mentioning him here for the first time: Chuck Kalasinsky had a 300 game last week in the Monday doubles league. Nice bowling! 🙂

Ed Roberts & John Gant take SEMBA Century Doubles title in Cranston

As noted in the above Facebook post, Brockton Bowling Association Hall of Famer Ed Roberts teamed with past PBA Tour champion John Gant to win SEMBA’s first of two Century Doubles (sum of ages must be at least 100) titles for the year last Sunday at AMF Cranston Lanes, defeating Jesse Cote & George Tignor, 821-761 (two games) in the final round. Gant also threw SEMBA’s second 300 game in its history in the semifinal round. Kegel Abbey Road was the lane condition.

Zach Thompson bowls 300, Chuck Paige 298 in NAT doubles

As usual with the Northeast Amateur Tournament, I’ll post the scores from the tournament first; these were both in the same group of the second squad, Zach Thompson first in the second game with a 300, then Chuck Paige’s 298 game following that.

Good bowling guys! 🙂

Jake Tobin fires 300 game in Adult/Junior

Jake Tobin bowled his first 800 series this past winter season in the Brunswick Mixed league, and can now add a 300 game to that, bowled tonight in the Adult/Junior league. Ken Gerraughty got the video, which he let me download and share here:

Congrats Jake…I know you’ve been wanting one of those! 🙂

Buddy Wilt bowls first 300 in Hanover history

I didn’t find out about it until today at the Brockton Bowling Association’s annual meeting, but congratulations to my fellow board member Buddy Wilt, who, last Nov. 28, bowled the first 300 game in the history of Boston Bowl Hanover in the Monday Mixers league. WTG! 🙂

Sean Richard throws 300 game at Wonder Bowl

With his Brockton Bowling Association Hall of Fame induction only days away (finally), “$eany Ka$h” added to his resume last night with a 300 game in the Columbia 300 Summer Classic league at Wonder Bowl in New Bedford, in which he was subbing. This was #86 for him, so the count-up to #100 is close to being, if not actually, on.

Nice bowling! 🙂

Shawn Hagan posts 815 set in Coke league

The highest-scoring Coke league in memory was not going to end without a score in the last week, it seemed, and it was Shawn Hagan who provided it, going 279-268-268 for a personal-best 815 set. Way to end on a high note! 🙂

I will have one more post to make about the season in this league, but it’ll have to wait until next week, when I’ll have the content I want.

Tom Hedding fires 300 in Patriots, sets new Brockton Bowling Association record average

“TomTom” Hedding threw a 300 second game in the Patriots league tonight, but that may not be the most important thing that happened. He bookended the night with a 226 and a 193 for a 719 series, and with that, ended the season with a 240.60 average for 102 games in the league. It is, in fact, a new Brockton Bowling Association record, as well as the first 240 average in the association, as the old record was held by Nate Abdow, who posted a 238.93 average in the 2009-10 Silver City league at AMF Taunton Lanes (now defunct).

Congratulations! 🙂

Sean Richard fires 300 in Westgate Mixed

It’s been a while between scores for “$eany Ka$h”, but he ended his honor score drought last night with a 300 in the Westgate Mixed league. I don’t remember if his team won the first half of that league, but it was their position night for the second half last night.

WTG $eany! 🙂
