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! 🙂
“Seany Ka$h” had a busy weekend, traveling to four different events, including both 9 AM squads of the BPUSBC mixed doubles in Hanover, but the highlight was an 803 set in the NAT singles event Saturday at East Providence Lanes, per his post above. Good shooting! 🙂
I missed the last frame of the game, but returned to see that Brian Egan had a 299 last night in the Patriots league. Nice bowling! 🙂
Aaron Major reported to me via Facebook that he had 257-258-299 for an 814 set last night in the His & Hers league. Nice bowling!
Stephanie Bourhill reported on Facebook that her husband Joe shot 299 last night in the Westport Trios league at Holiday Lanes. WTG!
Shout-out to Sandi Litchfield for a 277 game last week in the TNBA league. 🙂
Jake Tobin, who had the season’s first 300 three weeks ago, added another last night in the Patriots league. Stephen Miller sent me the video seen here:
Sean Richard reported to me that Jim Ferguson had a 299 game Sunday in the Bay State Open season opener at Town Line in Malden. Great game!
Just about 24 hours after a 299 at Wonder Bowl, Joe Bourhill tossed the first 300 of the Patriots league season last night. Sean Richard sent me the video seen here:
Stephanie Bourhill posted on Facebook that her husband Joe shot a 299 game last night at Wonder Bowl. Nice bowling. 🙂
Congratulations to Jake Tobin, with what was likely the first 300 game at Westgate this season last night in the Brunswick Mixed league. We should be able to confirm whether it was the first in the association soon.
I’m pondering a post about my own status, but I’m not comfortable making it yet.
Leagues haven’t started for the new season at Westgate, but the Westport Trios league started last night, and Sean Richard came out of the gate firing 296-268-245 for an 809, per his Facebook post. WTG!
Not putting this into the Westgate Warriors category, but one of the Warriors, Danny Khuu, will be carrying some momentum into Battle Bowl X this week, as he tossed 238-300-278 for an 816 set last night in the Monday doubles league. Stephanie Bourhill got the video below:
Congrats Khuulade! 🙂
Today, the Westgate Warriors claimed the 2018-19 UBA New England championship in a 36-4 rout over New England Heat. The day’s standouts were Jon Hester (782 with a 299 game) and Jim Ferguson (752) in Scratch, Brian Egan (716) in Handicap 1, and Stan Lewis (703) in Handicap 2.
The Warriors will now face X-Treme Chaos, out of the New Jersey South district, in the Battle Bowl Elite 8 at Bowlarama in New Castle, DE.
UPDATE: FloBowling will provide live streaming coverage of Battle Bowl X, including the UBA World Championship matches. Click here for the schedule. I personally hope FloBowling will also provide live scoring from the center, which would make “live recap” coverage possible.
After I posted about Jim Ferguson’s 300 yesterday, Rob Young contacted me to say that Bob Hamilton also had a 299 the other night. Nice game! 🙂
I don’t ever remember Jim Ferguson bowling a summer league, but he was convinced to sub on Brian Egan’s team last night and rewarded himself for doing so with a perfecto. Congrats!
Congrats to Ethan Rosenberg for a 290 game in the Adult/Junior league on May 30. I’ve mentioned him before for a team score, but this is the first individual score of his that I’m reporting on.
“Ka$h” checked in with me today and reported that he had a 299 last night in the doubles league. Nice bowling. 🙂
Sandi Litchfield posted a video on her Facebook timeline (limited to friends) that showed her son Shane putting the finishing touches on a 300 game last night in Wonder Bowl’s Tuesday night summer league. Good job, Shane! 🙂
After the UBA match, Sean Richard went to Callahan’s Bowl-O-Rama in Newington, CT for the Ace Mitchell Northeast tournament and proceeded to put 300 #105 in the books. Sean’s video will be shared on the Facebook page.
James Bessette posted in the (closed) Westgate Warriors Facebook group that they won 22 points against Raging Bulls today at East Providence Lanes and have qualified for the New England North playoffs on July 7 at the Bowlero in Milford, CT, where they will face the Auburn Maulers. Leading the way today was Louis Bacci, with a 299 game.
UPDATE: The host center for the NE North playoffs has been changed to Callahan’s Bowl-O-Rama in Newington, CT.
I saw on Facebook (post was not shareable) that Keith Callahan of the His & Hers league (and bowling Monday Summer Doubles at Westgate) bowled his first 300 game in the Friday Night Doubles summer league last night at Kingston Ten Pin. Congrats! 🙂
Note: It is not known if this league is certified.
And Sean Richard related to me on Facebook that he had a 299 second game at Wonder Bowl last night. Also very nice! 🙂
I finally saw an update for the Wednesday summer league and learned that a member of the Brunswick Mixed league, Sammy Wong, had a 299 game last week. Very nice! 🙂
The Monday Summer Doubles league has been updating standings same-night, but I didn’t realize that until last night, when I saw that Keith Kaestner had a 290 for the high game of last week. Nice bowling, Keith! 🙂
I saw Stephanie Bourhill’s Facebook video of Sean Richard’s 300 attempt in the Wonder Bowl Summer Classic league last night, but left a solid 9 pin for a 299. Sean additionally reported that an open 8th frame in the third game cost him the 800, but bowled a 268 fourth game to go over 1,000 for the set.
Nice bowling! 🙂
On the first night of the Monday summer doubles league, Danny Khuu put up a 299 game, which was probably his last bowling before his Vegas nationals trip. WTG! 🙂
Tim Major reported to me that his son Aaron finished the His & Hers season with a 241.6 average. As Jim Ferguson’s record average last season was 240.83, Aaron becomes the new BPUSBC association record holder. Congrats Aaron! 🙂
Congratulations to Corey Major, who bowled his first 300 game tonight in the Adult/Junior league. As I was able to confirm with Rose Hamilton, Corey, at age 14, is now the youngest bowler with a 300 game at Westgate Lanes, pending formal USBC certification.
Sean Richard sent me the video below:
Following a thrilling tie at 236, Billy Trudell defeated Jalen Scott-Jones 49-40 in a 9th & 10th frame roll-off to claim his 2nd title (first singles) at the NEBA Westgate Lanes Open. The title match punctuated a fun match play portion of the tournament, which also saw 16-year-old Nate Purches take down New England bowling legend Mike Lichstein in the first round, as well as a sibling “rivalry” match in the semifinals (Billy Trudell vs. his sister Nicole).
The videos of the final match and winner’s interview may be found on NEBA’s Facebook page.
Westgate’s cashers were Aaron Major & Kevin Thibeault, who both reached the quarterfinals, along with Alex Aguiar & Shawn Hagan; Jim Ferguson was high senior out of the money.
Sunday’s qualifying was highlighted by Eric Copping’s 264-300-290 for an 854 (first three of five) on the 12:30 PM squad, and a 290 by Bill Webb and a 299 by Brian Boghosian on the 9 AM squad.
Blanket congratulations to all, and thank you to the NEBA tournament staff for running another great tournament.
