Tim Riordan tosses perfecto in Pepsi league

There was finally a 300 game in this season’s Pepsi league last night, thrown by Eklund Electric’s Tim Riordan. I wasn’t there due to a meeting about another service project, but Mike Dobrowolski sent along this video:

Great bowling! 🙂

Adam Johndrow bowls 267 in BBIS league

I don’t mention John Hayes’ BBIS league much, but there was one notable game in it Friday night, that being Adam Johndrow’s 267 (with the threshold being lower due to the more challenging lane conditions). Great bowling!

Kevin Thibeault tosses 300 in 2020 BPUSBC association singles

It took until the very last squad of the tournament, but there was one 300 in this year’s Bristol-Plymouth USBC association tournament, and it was by Kevin Thibeault in the singles event yesterday at Kingston Ten Pin. The video I got below was the first one posted here that I got on my current cellphone and not on my “good” camera.

Congrats Kevin! 🙂

Feb. 22 youth league notes

Some notable youth league scores from Feb. 22:

  • Dylan Major, with a 279 game (207 avg.) in the Seniors league
  • Aiden Delehoy, with a 246 game and 711 series (176 avg.), also in the Seniors league
  • Ian Zalewski, with a 204 game (130 avg.) in the Juniors league
  • Phillip Noonan, with a 164 game (99 avg.), also in the Juniors league

Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Note: Aiden Delehoy is a younger bowler, but is allowed to bowl with the senior kids because he carries such a high average for his age.

Hakim Emmanuel posts 299 in TNBA league

As “Mr. 900’s” anniversary was approaching, he threatened another 300 game last Friday night in the TNBA league, evidenced in the weekly highs. However, Kris Higgins had a great night, with a 279 game in a 778 series, and Devon McGregor also checked in with a 275 game.

Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Aaron Major slams 300/846 in His & Hers

Aaron Major had his best league night yet, according to his mother, Debbie, when he went 289-300-257 for an 846 the other night in the His & Hers league, noted also in the league’s weekly highs. Debbie messaged me asking if I was aware; I was, not having posted yesterday due to dealing with Hakim’s 5th anniversary. However, I did put it up on the association’s new Instagram, which I’ll embed here if I can figure out how to do it.

WTG Aaron! 🙂

Note: Aaron’s average in the league is currently 250.50. The highest average in the state that I’m aware of is Alex Aguiar’s 250 for 96 games in the old Westport Match Play Classic league at Holiday Lanes in the 2009-10 season. Henry Verdini, president of the state association, along with his wife, Barbara, are helping me try to find other state record candidates.

UPDATE: Attempting to embed the Instagram about Aaron’s night here:

Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett win NAT One-Ball Doubles at East Providence

Feb 16 NAT One-Ball Doubles

Finalists of the Northeast Amateur Tournament One-Ball Doubles at East Providence Lanes on Feb. 16 (L-R): Champions Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett, runners-up Jim Ferguson & Sean Richard (Photo courtesy of NAT)

Per the Northeast Amateur Tournament’s Facebook post (must be logged in to view), Jayme Silva Sr. & Ed Grossett won the One-Ball Doubles event yesterday at East Providence Lanes with a 541-475 victory (handicap added) in the final match over Jim Ferguson & Sean Richard. This was the first NAT doubles event with the One-Ball format, meaning a competitor used his same ball for all shots in qualifying and in match play if his team qualified.

A notable game was turned in by Sean Richard in qualifying, a 300, the video of which the BPUSBC obtained from Sandi Litchfield and made the first video on their new Instagram, which can be found here.

Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Aaron Major shoots 755 in Raynham

I don’t know if he’s had an 800 in this league yet, but Aaron Major got fairly close to one in the Thursday Night Mixed league at Ryan’s Amusements in Raynham last night with a 755 set, per the league’s weekly high scores. Note: If I haven’t mentioned it here already, Aaron bowls in this league with two of my former Brunswick Mixed teammates, Barry & Donald Wood.

Nice bowling, Aaron! 🙂

Aaron Major throws 300/816 in His & Hers

Per the league’s recap sheet, Aaron Major Tuesday night went 300-268-248 for an 816 set in the His & Hers league. I’m not sure what the state record average is, but I want to say it belongs to Alex Aguiar with something in the 250s. If Aaron’s heater is extended, that record could be threatened.

I also need to mention Ray Fischer’s 279 game, which is on the same page of recap sheets. Nice bowling everyone! 🙂

Feb. 1 youth league note

Last week (Feb. 1) in the Seniors youth league, Chris Zalewski (206 avg.) put up a high 288 game in a 767 set. Those scores would have been good enough for me to post as adult scores. Nice bowling Chris! 🙂

Aaron Major shoots 279/814, Chris Galarza 299 in His & Hers

Aaron Major, still in pursuit of breaking his own association record average, helped his cause with a 256-279-279 performance Tuesday night for an 814 set in the His & Hers league, per the recap sheet. Also that night, Chris Galarza posted a 299 game, also evidenced on the linked recap sheet.

Congrats to both! 🙂

Ricky LaRouche wins inaugural BPUSBC Masters

As reported by the Bristol-Plymouth USBC above, Ricky LaRouche became their first ever Masters tournament champion today at Westgate Lanes by defeating Kevin Thibeault, 246-202, in the championship match.

I hadn’t planned on it, but, at the suggestion of some of the bowlers, Danny Khuu and AJ Voisine in particular, I decided to make this tournament the association’s first live stream event for the match play portion. Three matches appear in the Facebook event discussion, but I also transferred the title match to the main page, and it appears below:

For the record, Kevin did win our first live stream match, over Mike Griffin. Rob Young, our president, has always wanted me to live stream something for us, so I was happy I was able to make it happen for him in a way that made our first Masters tournament even more special. I hope we’ll get better at this as we gain experience.

Kevin also had the tournament’s first 300 game this morning to open the round of 16, so congratulations to him, as well as Ricky for winning the tournament.

I have one more trick up my sleeve for tonight, which I’ll also give a heads-up for on Facebook before I do it.

Jan. 25 youth league note

Great bowling last week in the Senior youth league by Ashley Major, with a 245 game (168 avg.), and Aiden Delehoy, with a 236 game (171 avg.). WTG! 🙂
