Clutch performance by Lou V seals his first Victory!
23 tournaments, 6 months and lots of failures but the wait is finally over as Lou V, former 1973 NJCAA National Champion jumped into the winners circle with a clutch strike to beat lefty Rob D for his first BBT win.
It was a great final match. Rob, who was coming off of a 276 to 158 spanking of Grandpa D, was clearly the odds on favorite to win...especially that he had 29 pins of handicap.
Here is how it played out:
Lou V x,x,6/,x,9/,9-,9/,x,x,x,8/
Rob D x,x,9/,72,x,x,9/9/9/9/x
Rob forced Lou V to strike on the first ball or a 9/,x to tie...He stepped up and high flushed the shot...booooooom....winner!!! Finally!!! Rob bowled very well but missing the 369 was his downfall. Another great final match!!
Here's how it all played out:
Tittie, last weeks champion led qualifying this week and another tough luck story for Nick K...who started with a 223 and ended with a 169 to miss the cut by 2 pins...ouch...Reinfart and Wazy were never in it...with Wazy having 5 splits in game one...maybe we can call him the split bitch...
Tittie vs Lou V - Classic matchup of bitter (friendly) rivals. this was a great match for Lou who totally pounded the milk out of Tittie...245/272 to 190/205. Tittie left 4 pin after 4 pin and
was never in the match
Grandpa D versus Rob D - After Rob throws the first 7 and Grandpa D starts with an open...match, game, set...276/305 to 158/180...
Lou V. Versus Rob D - Lou 212/239 Rob 201/230
Tittie versus Grandpa D - an epic battle of father versus son...not real exciting until the 10th when Tittie needed a mark to beat his dad and leaves a 10 pin and flags it...Grandpa D 3rd place.
Misses 10 pin to lose in 10th
