Per their official results (PDF format), the Mass. USBC Youth Association reported Aiden Delehoy of Westgate Lanes as the U10 boys champion at the state Pepsi tournament, held last Sunday at Brunswick Zone Lowell. A source in the youth association also told me that since the three U20 boys listed were already qualified for Junior Gold, the Junior Gold spot out of the tournament in the division fell to Westgate Lanes’ Jonathan Gerraughty.
Congrats to both! 🙂
Kimmy Paige (of the Westgate Mixed league) posted on her Facebook (post wasn’t “Public”) that she and Rai Doblmeier (who is bowling in the Pepsi league this year), won the Masters titles in the New England deaf tournament this past weekend at Town Line Luxury Lanes in Malden. Congrats! 🙂
A couple of honor scores from yesterday’s city tournament to pass along, both in singles: Pat Carrara, with 290-290-241 for an 821, and Jayme Silva, with 267-258-279 for an 804. Nice bowling! 🙂
Update: Forgot I wanted to note this, too: Dave Chalifoux converted the 7-10 split during his team event yesterday, as well. 🙂
There were a couple of honor games today on Day 1 of the Brockton city tournament, Kevin Thibeault’s 298 in doubles, and Peter Cappola’ 300 game in singles, the video of which I present below:
Good bowling, guys! 🙂
Update: Rob Young told me that, in singles, he had the back 11 after leaving the 8-10 for a 279. Good recovery! 🙂

The junior travel league season ends with a singles eliminator tournament, and Sandi Litchfield reported on her Facebook that her son Shane won it today at Wonder Bowl with games of 298, 258, and 241 for a 792 series (with the 298 counting as an honor score for blog purposes). Nice job! 🙂
Per this post in the Southeastern Mass. association Facebook group, Shawn Hagan is officially their association tournament’s scratch singles champion with a winning score of 798. Congrats! 🙂
Got wind today of a 300 game by Brockton association Hall of Famer Jim Ferguson in the doubles event of the Southeastern Mass. association tournament Sunday at Wonder Bowl, which he dedicated to Harry Thibeault. Shawn Hagan was Jim’s doubles partner, and there is video on Danny Khuu’s Facebook. Congrats Jim! 🙂
With Harry Thibeault’s wake rescheduled to last Saturday due to last week’s nor’easter, the Brockton Bowling Association has likewise rescheduled the association tournament for Apr. 7 & 8 at the same times.
Results from today’s Adult/Junior doubles tournament:
- Kyle Major & Kevin Thibeault 1,412
- Glenn Rucker & Rose Hamilton 1,404
- Dylan & Tim Major 1,482
Congrats to all! 🙂
I forgot to post last night that, due to Westgate Lanes not having power after a late-week nor’easter, leagues, including Sunday Niters and the junior travel league, had to postpone, as well as the Brockton USBC YA honor squad tournament. My league should pick up where we left off, and other weekend activities (honor squad, travel league) are rescheduled for this coming weekend.
Finalists of the Feb. 25 NAT doubles event at Westgate Lanes (L-R): Champions Hakim Emmanuel & Angel Hernandez, runners-up Bob DiMuccio Jr. & Sr. (Photo courtesy of Northeast Amateur Tournament)
The Northeast Amateur Tournament posted on their Facebook page (must be logged into Facebook to view) that “Mr. 900” Hakim Emmanuel paired with Angel Hernandez to take the doubles event held Sunday at Westgate Lanes, defeating Bob DiMuccio Sr. & Jr., 562-491 (with handicap), in the final match. Other Westgate bowlers in the elimination finals were Chuck Paige & Matt Richard, Ralph Dahlgren & Bill Briggs, Dan Robinson & Mike Peirce, Tom Hedding (with Jayme Silva), Ed Grossett & Mike “Sensae” Reed, and Jim Ferguson & Sean Richard. There were 43 entries.
Danny Khuu bowled the Northeastern Open Championships at Yankee Lanes in Keene, NH yesterday instead of staying home, and he reported that he had 300-247-289 for an 836 in his doubles event. Nice bowling! 🙂
Getting all of yesterday’s honor scores out of the way…
The biggest score of the day was turned in by association Hall of Famer Dan Robinson, who posted 288-267-290 in his first three qualifying games for an 845 set. Also, Stephen Major had a 300 game on the first squad, and Danny Zizza 300 on the second squad. For Zizza, it was his first 300 game, and it came on lanes 47 & 48, meaning he now has something in common with “Mr. 900” Hakim Emmanuel, who also had his first three 300 games on that pair.
Results (hopefully) to come later. Congrats everyone! 🙂
“$eany Ka$h” bowled the AXS Kings & Queens mixed doubles event at Old Mountain Lanes today with Sandi Litchfield, and came away with at least his 96th 300 game. If I found that they won the tournament, there will be a follow-up post.
Nice bowling Seany! 🙂
Results of today’s Westgate Memorial Scholarship Tournament (all scores with handicap, prize in parentheses):

Shane deserves special mention here, as he went 299-249-276 for an 824 scratch series, his first honor scores (albeit unsanctioned).
Congrats to everyone! 🙂

As shown in the above Facebook post, Westgate bowler Danny Khuu teamed with Bruce Hall to win the handicap title at the inaugural Rhode Island USBC Doubles Championship, which was held the last two weekends at Walnut Hill Bowl in Woonsocket. Hall & Khuu were actually leading scratch with a 1,944 (four games) going into the final day, but were bested by Paul Smith & Joey Transue with a 1,989, with Hall & Khuu’s 1,944 still being good for the handicap title.
WTG “Khuulade”! 🙂
