Dan The Man beats the brothers…wins his first BBT singles title

Runner-Up Alex, Champion Dan and 3rd Place Finisher Kenny

Dan Luncsford averaged over 240 to win his first BBT singles title Wednesday, shooting 279 scratch to convincing beat top qualifier, 16 years old Alex H. 279/292 to 150/198 in the step ladder final.

Qualifying –

Good turnout for a non-scheduled event with 12 bowlers shooting. Rob D, Lou V are both on the injured reserved list, PJ…has found love on a 2 way street and is nowhere to be found, Wazy was plowing and so was Jack, but we had 2 new bowlers this week…Gerbil and Alex H.

We had a 3 game qualifier and scores were high with Dan L leading the way with 738 scratch followed by Kevin Reinfart, 735. Once again hard luck Dennis was under the cut line by a 15…hang in there Denpin, we need 50+ members…last week champ, Sarah just missed by 6 pins and Mikie D and the loose goose, had very bad weeks…finishing at the bottom of the pile.

Quarter-Finals

We cut the field to the quarter finals with 6 bowlers advancing for 1 match game. The 3 winner and the biggest loser moved on.

Dan shot against Mike R in a real yawner…with Dan, after his 735, shooting only 192 but that was enough as Mike only shot 173 to lose by 18 with handicap. Alex, just beat out Justine 165/213 to 168/201…it is interesting as time goes by…the scores go down in the BBT! The 3rd match was great. Reinfart vs. Kenny. Kenny gave Reinfart everything he could handle and barely lost 279/289 to 240/268. Kenny was rewarded with the highest loser and moved on with the rest to the semi-finals.

Semi-Finals – Well, we have had boyfriend and girlfriend in a match, with Cesar pounding the tar out of his Girlfriend Dee, but we never had brothers bowl against each other before so it was kind of cool to see Alex shoot against his brother Kenny. And they had a great entertaining match with Alex outlasting Kenny 219/267 to 223/251…they were very good sports and it was a blast to see them battle it out. Kenny is 3 years older…I think. The other match, was one of the best ever on paper with Dan L versus Kevin Reinfart. Dan destroyed Reinfart…246/259 to 209/212.

Once again, Kenny moved on as the biggest loser to the step ladder finals with Alex in the top seed, Dan 2nd and Kenny 3rd.

The stepladder finals were more like a watching a Mack Truck take out a Smart Car with Dan blowing through the field in convincing fashion beating Kenny, 246/259 to 191/219 and then taking on Alex, who had a great first BBT, 279/292 to 150/198.

Great, great bowling by Dan, who won his first singles BBT title and congrats to Alex, our youngest BBT member…you bowled great, kept you composure and finished 2nd…Justine, great bowling again, Reinfart…bowled great, but the luck of the draw did you in, Kenny, you should be proud of yourself, Mike R…wait until next week.

Sarah, tough miss of the cut, Dennis…retire…Gerbil, welcome to you, Jim L. man you throw a lot of ball, Mike D. you have to have an off week every once in a while and Andy…how cold was the cellar…? But don't feel too bad….you only missed the cut by 109 pins…my Grandmother could miss the cut by less than 100 pins and she is 97 years old…you blow…

The BBT continues Tuesday 12/30/08 at 8:30pm
