Consider this a “clean-up” item from last Thursday: Mark Zimmerman ended his Patriots league night with the back 11 for a 290 third game. WTG! 🙂
Shawn Hagan last night in the Pepsi league had the front 11, but then left a fast eight (4-7) for a 298, now the high game in the league this season. Nice bowling! 🙂
According to this Facebook post (must be logged into Facebook to view), Mark Zimmerman & Brian Egan repeated last month’s doubles title at Town Line Luxury Lanes by defeating Hakim Emmanuel & Angel Hernandez Sr., 491-490 (with handicap) to capture the title at Westgate Lanes. The final match came down to Egan’s three balls in the 10th, all of which needed to be strikes to win by a pin.
Congrats again guys! 🙂
After winning one point from 5 Spares, Let’s Mix Em Up is tied for 11th with Great Balls of Fire and 5 Spares, nine points behind Party of Six, who lead Stacked, Creeden’s Mustangs, and Last Empire by four points. The coming week is a position round, and our opponents are the aforementioned Great Balls of Fire.
Age may have slowed Brian “Hawk” Earle a bit, but he’s still capable of putting up good games, the best I’ve seen being a stuck 10 for a 299 last night in the Westgate Mixed league. WTG! 🙂
A little bit of everything last night except for first-ball gutter balls and split conversions. I’m proudest of my clean second game, and no missed single-pin spares all night.

Steve was absent, and the team only won the second game.
After winning four points from The Fun Team, Let’s Mix Em Up is in 12th place, six points behind Party of Six, who are two points ahead of Creeden’s Mustangs and Spare Us, and 2.5 points ahead of Livin on a Spare. 5 Spares will be tomorrow night’s opponents.
Si had the high scratch & handicap series in the men’s “E” division, with only Joe Sullivan having a higher game in the division.
I was alerted by Rose Hamilton to a 300 game bowled by Eldon Dunbar out of Auburn in the travel league at Westgate Sunday. WTG! 🙂
In the scuttlebutt before the Pepsi league last night, I was told Greg Andrews had a big night Thursday night, and, checking with the desk today, it was 278-277-299 for a monster 854 set. Nice bowling! 🙂
“Mr. 900” Hakim Emmanuel sent me a scorer photo which showed that he went 277-277-268 for an 822 set last night in the Rhythm & Bowling league, which research showed was his highest since the 900, and was also the first of his three honor series that didn’t have at least one 300 game. If you’re thinking “Hakim pair”, it was on 43 & 44, not 47 & 48.
Congrats Hakim! 🙂
As updated in their newsletter, the Northeast Amateur Tournament reported that Jim Ferguson won his first singles title and 5th overall in last Sunday’s event at Westgate Lanes, defeating Daniel Zizza, 239-234 (with handicap) in the final match.
Got a heads-up from Sean Richard last night that Peter Cappola went 258-290-259 for an 807 set last night in the TNBA league, which was his first 800 series. WTG! 🙂
I’ve mentioned him before: Carl Hanson had a 299 game last night in the Patriots league. Nice bowling! 🙂
I felt I executed better today, but a few early splits and transition misses later held my scores down. I did punch out in the 10th in two of the three games, the first coming when my team needed me.

Si had one of his best nights of my recent memory, going 183-179-201 for a 563 set; it helped the team win all four points.
After winning three points from Last Empire, Let’s Mix Em Up is in 13th place, eight points behind Party of Six, who lead 10th Frame Magic, The Fun Team (tonight’s opponents), and Spare Us by two points.
The NAT is often slow posting results, but I can report that Jim Ferguson had 279-256-269 for an 804 set (first three of four) in the first squad, and Stan Lewis had a 300 game on the second squad, the video of which I have here:
More to come later, of course.
He’s probably missed by the Pepsi league (as the one who ran the eliminator), but Devon McGregor has found success in his new league, the TNBA league, shooting a 296 game last week. Congrats! 🙂
The latest Patriots league standings update showed a 299 game last week by a bowler I don’t believe I’ve mentioned for a score yet, Omar Butcher. Congrats! 🙂
I think Brian Gaskill wanted to stack his Wednesday team in Malden, and Brian Egan helped deliver last night with 290-279-237 for an 806 set. WTG! 🙂
Although my execution was much better in the third game, a couple of untimely splits prevented that game from scoring better. There were a couple of single-pin misses, including one filling the last frame.

Team night wasn’t too special, but we still won the first two games & total.
After winning a point from Stacked, Let’s Mix Em Up is in a tie for 14th with 5 Spares, eight points behind Party of Six and 10th Frame Magic; those teams are a point ahead of Creeden’s Mustangs and two ahead of Last Empire (tonight’s opponents), Livin on a Spare, and Spare Us.
I had the high handicap series in the men’s “B” division last week (632, tied with Joe Chan).
It was a different time of year and opponent, but the Westgate Warriors again successfully defended their home center with a 26-14 net victory over Mill City Mayhem Sunday. Standouts for the Warriors were Brian Egan (760 in Scratch), Jon Hester (718 in Handicap 1), Jake Tobin (700 in Handicap 2), and Sean Richard (736 in Handicap 2). Egan had a 300 in the second game, and here’s the last shot (courtesy of Zach Thompson):
Not to be outdone, Brian Gaskill, bowling in Mop Nation’s match, went 300-247-267 for an 814 set.
Good bowling to all! 🙂
I noticed in the Rhythm & Bowling standings update that Tasheka Douglas bowled 276-211-265 for a 752 last Sunday night. Nice bowling! 🙂
Congrats to Peter Cappola, with a 300 in the TNBA league last week! 🙂
Junior has allowed me to take possession of these photos from either a tournament or exhibition on Nov. 1, 1964. The bowlers in these have been identified as PBA Hall of Famer Harry “The Tiger” Smith and Roy Lown (the latter the lefty, who won the PBA’S first televised finals in 1961).
The originals will be donated to the Downtown Brockton Museum.
Most of my difficulty was finding the adjustment for the left lane, because I had 5/5 strikes on the right lane in the second game, repeating my first game score in the third when I did find it.

Si was absent, and we might have been able to use him, as we only won first game. On the other hand, the opposing anchor shot 747.
Aaron Major is back home from Wichita St. for the longer term now, and threw a 300 last night in the His & Hers league, which, I believe is his first as an adult bowler. Nice game! 🙂
Let’s Mix Em Up lost all four to Lost & Found and are now tied for 13th with Stacked (tonight’s opponents) , nine points behind Party of Six, who are two points ahead of Creeden’s Mustangs and three ahead of 10th Frame Magic, Great Balls of Fire, and Lost & Found.
Congrats to Brian Egan, who put up 257-255-300 for an 812 set last Thursday night in the Patriots league. 🙂
Zach Thompson has released the Westgate Warriors’ 2018-19 UBA season schedule in the franchise’s Facebook group, which, as usual, I share below:
I’m told the lack of number of teams in the division is the reason for the number of position rounds.
