Bobby Geddes wasn’t the only one with a variant of his first name who had a 300 at Westgate last night, as Hall of Famer Bob Hamilton had one in the Westgate Mixed league. Bob’s daughter, Stephanie Bourhill, usually gets his videos, and this one is below:
Nice bowling Bob! 🙂
My team was bowling against Livin on a Spare last night, and, in the last game, their anchor bowler, Bobby Geddes, bowled his first 300 game. All I could do was smile at the achievement…WTG Bobby. 🙂
Shout-out to Kevin Thibeault, who, last night in the Pepsi league, shot his second 290 game in a three-week span. 🙂
The real story of the BPUSBC Spring Holiday Doubles tournament yesterday came in the first squad, in which Sean Richard went 259-289-290 for an 838, which, with Jim Ferguson’s 227-246-268=741, was good for a 558 high team game and a 1,579 series, both of which will be reported to USBC headquarters.
There was one other score yesterday, a 290 bowled by Mike Morrissey. Good bowling to all! 🙂
It may be time to crown Bill Briggs “King of the (Middle) Road” at Westgate Lanes, because not only did he bowl his second 300 game of the quarter last night, but bookended that with games of 257 and 276 for an 833 set, rare territory for the Pepsi league. Great night, Billy! 🙂

The Northeast Amateur Tournament reported on Facebook (must be logged in to view) that Shawn Hagan defeated Jim Ferguson, 255-254 (with handicap) in the title match of yesterday’s “Throw the Low” event at Westgate Lanes. In this format, the bowlers bowled four games of qualifying, with the high three only counting toward the total. It was Hagan’s first NAT singles title.
Congrats also to Kevin Kelliher, who had a 297 in qualifying.
And another one in, this one via Sean Richard: Bill Hill bowled his first 300 last night to go along with the one posted by Shane Litchfield. Congrats! 🙂
Sandi Litchfield posted a Facebook video last night showing her son Shane finishing off a 300 game. WTG!
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen John Kunan put up a big number, but, along with “The Truth’s” 300 game last week in the Westgate Mixed league, Kunan added a 290. Nice bowling!
Adam “Itchy” Johndrow had another 300 in the Firefighters league last night, meaning he’s now gone 300, 299, and 300 in three consecutive weeks. Keep it up! 🙂
I was notified by Rob Young at the end of the night last night that Kevin Thibeault put up a 290 game, which I didn’t see much of. Good bowling, Kev! 🙂
I missed seeing it, but a league source told me Mike Mayo left a 5-7 after the first 11 last night in the Patriots league. Next time! 🙂
Sean Richard posted a video on Facebook that showed Brian Egan bowled 300 last night in Malden for the second time in as many weeks. Nice!
He had one back in January, and Roland “The Truth” Sandefur added a 300 last night in Westgate Mixed. WTG!
Elsewhere in my league, David Chin, a member of the leading Last Empire team, went 266-277-258 for an 801, which was his first 800 series. Congrats!
Adam Johndrow nearly followed up last week’s 300 with another one last night, but a 10 pin stopped him short. Next time!
It took 27 weeks, but Bill Briggs bowled the first 300 game of the Pepsi league season last night in the second game. Congrats!
I saw several reports on Facebook that Ed Miller, a member of my Wednesday league, bowled his first 300 game last night in the Sunday Niters league, which I have been a member of. Congrats! 🙂
Sean Richard posted on Facebook that he had 256-289-255 for 800 on the button in the doubles event of the SEMASS association tournament at AMF Somerset Lanes yesterday. Nice bowling!
Note: Sean bowls in the Monday trios league at Holiday Lanes in Westport, and so was already an association member.
There are three generations of the Brown family from around Kingston who bowl as a team in the Patriots league, and, the other night, Hal, the youngest of the three, bowled a 298 game. WTG!
Last night, in the second game, Bill Hill had the first 11, but was stopped by a 2-4-8 for a 297. Next time, Bill! 🙂
Congrats to Adam Johndrow for a 300 game Monday night in the unsanctioned Firefighters league. (For those who aren’t there on Monday, the Pepsi league has the high end, with Firefighters closer to the desk.) Adam told me he’s had seven 300s, but wasn’t sure how many were in the Firefighters league.
Congrats to Brian Egan, who had a 300 last night in the Wednesday night Malden league. Sean Richard, Brian’s teammate, got video, which is below:
I didn’t know if he did it before, but, last night, in a follow-up on a Facebook post, Sean Richard told me he flagged a 7 pin to start a game, but then followed that up with the back 11 for a 279, the maximum score possible with an open frame.
Nice bowling! 🙂
We’re used to big scores from Sean Richard, but the Boston Rhythm & Bowling league provided a new setting for one last night, and it was a monster: 255-299-289 for an 847 set, now high in the house this season. Nice bowling!
Two 800s to report from yesterday’s NAT: Danny Khuu was the more familiar name, as he went 289-255-257 for an 801 (first three, as always), but Shane Litchfield, now an adult bowler, put up 258-279-278 for an 815 and his first 800 series.
Finally, Bob Dimuccio Jr. and Paul Sawyer each had a 290 game, which was high in the tournament.
Good bowling to all.
I’ve posted about Tasheka Douglas, who had a 724 set last week in the Rhythm & Bowling league, before, but, for this post, she is joined by a new name: Taylor Sinkler, who had a 274 game. Good bowling, ladies. 🙂
One of the bowlers involved alerted me last night that his team, Team 17, with a lineup of Mark Zimmerman, Jon Hester, and Rob Young, shot a 2,257 team series last week in the Patriots league, which is over the USBC reporting threshold. Here are the line scores, for the record:
Nice bowling guys! 🙂
Congrats to Ralph Dahlgren, who had the 277 in Strike F/X’s 857 game last week, for a 300 last night. Sean Richard’s video is below:
I’ve written plenty about the Pepsi league’s Hy Bao and his successes in tournaments, but never for a score, and it was a notable one for him: His first 300 last night in Malden. Congrats! 🙂
