Danny Khuu rolls 300/816 in Monday doubles

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! 🙂

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.

Jim Ferguson posts 300 in Monday doubles

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!

Ethan Rosenberg fires 290 in Adult/Junior league

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.

Shane Litchfield tosses 300 at Wonder Bowl

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! 🙂

Westgate Warriors qualify for UBA playoffs; Louis Bacci shoots 299

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.

Keith Callahan rolls first 300 in Kingston

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.

Keith Kaestner throws 290 in Monday doubles

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! 🙂

Sean Richard tosses 299 at Wonder Bowl

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! 🙂

Danny Khuu shoots 299 in Monday doubles

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! 🙂

Aaron Major sets new BPUSBC record average

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! 🙂

Corey Major becomes youngest with 300 at Westgate

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:

Billy Trudell wins 2nd NEBA title at Westgate

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.

2019 NEBA Saturday notes

A couple of notes/observations from tonight’s NEBA squad:

  • Jim Savasta had the high game on the squad with a 299, with a 9 pin spoiling the perfecto.
  • Both lefties on the squad, Westgate’s Aaron Major along with Jalen Scott-Jones, made the squad cut. With PBA Tour champion Anthony Pepe, also a lefty, due at Westgate in the morning, tomorrow will be really interesting.

Aaron Major posts 804 in His & Hers

As announced by the BPUSBC above, Aaron Major threw 279-268-257 for an 804 series tonight in the His & Hers league. Aaron actually needed a 266 third game to break Jim Ferguson’s association record average, but Sean Richard reported to me that Aaron left a stone 8 pin in the penultimate frame, which cost him the record.

Congrats again, anyway, Aaron! 🙂

Shawn Hagan rolls 300 in Pepsi league

The Pepsi league season also ended with a bang last night, with Shawn Hagan putting up a trey, the last shot of which is shown below:

Nice game! 🙂

Sean Richard throws 810 in Westport

“$eany Ka$h” has been bowling the Westport Trios league at Holiday Lanes on Monday nights rather than the Pepsi league. While it took him until the last night, he finally broke through last night, posting 267-266-277 for an 810 (see above). WTG! 🙂

Bob Hamilton throws 300 in Westgate Mixed

Congrats to BPUSBC Hall of Famer Bob Hamilton, who had a 300 game on the Westgate Mixed League’s position night, which was his second in the league’s last three weeks. I’m not sure, but his team may be in that league’s roll-off next week.

Congrats again! 🙂

Sean Richard posts 290/804 in singles at Mass. state tournament

According to the recap he posted on Facebook, Sean Richard had 236-290-278 for an 804 in singles at the Mass. open state tournament in Auburn. He had decent scores in his other events, coming away with a 2,226 all-events score. Good bowling! 🙂

Ed Ashbaugh tosses 300 in Falmouth

Per the post above, Pepsi leaguer Ed Ashbaugh had a 300 game last night in the Thursday Night Mixed league at Trade Center Bowl in Falmouth, which, judging from his other recent posts, was his first in that house. Congrats! 🙂

Full disclosure: Ed Ashbaugh recently became the new proprietor of Trade Center Bowl.

Sean Richard rolls 297 in Patriots league

Sean Richard had a rare choke on a 300 last night, finishing a game out with a 297, but I can’t let it be said that he didn’t have an excuse: He became a grandfather for the first time this week, so congratulations to Seany, his son Matt, and Amanda, the mother.
