champs Nick Devlin & Alejandro Moser-Hernandez
Nick Devlin and Alejandro Moser-Hernandez added titles to their JBT collection in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at AMF Firebird Lanes in Salem.
Devin Choate began an impressive climb up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 228-174 win over Gabe Bogner. Gabe was the winner of the day's Super Bowl contest, missing the correct final score by only one point (his odds were good as only four bowlers picked New England, unsurprisingly). Choate then got by Matthew Yaw 216-198, and followed with a 217-214 thriller over Brian Monnette to reach his first title match.
Top seed Nick Devlin continued his excellent season by leading the event here. He left no doubt as to the winner in the title match, starting with the front four and eventually cruising to the high game of the tournament with a 268-184 victory, and the sixth title of his JBT career.
Jerry Jennings began the handicap division stepladder with a 206-178 victory over Cameron Pierre. Reagan Lorey then stopped Jennings 216-209. In a close semifinal, Bailey Peters then stopped Lorey 218-215 to reach the title match.
Alejandro Moser-Hernandez wowed the Tour with his first title last season, and he was up to it again by leading the event here against a strong field. He stayed in control for the entire title match, eventually beating Bailey 236-188 for the second title of his young JBT career.
Lorey's excellent day continued in the girls' title match, earning the top seed and beating Kelsey Abrahamsen 169-132 for the day's woemn's series title. She also won an Ebonite ball in the day's raffle, for a pretty nice trifecta!
