Daniel Hong, Josh Abigania, Kaili Purugganan, Ernesto Reynoso, Avery Domaguin
Josh Abigania and Kaili Purugganan opened up the 2021-22 JBT So Cal Conference season with big wins in exciting action at Forest Lanes.
JBT newcomer Ernesto Reynoso began the scratch division finals with a 213-176 win over Kyler Orosco. Daniel Hong then fired a big 269 en route to a 48 pin win over Ernesto to reach the title match. Top seed Abigania put on a steady performance on the tricky 'winding road' pattern to grab the number 1 spot, but faced a tough challenge in a motivated Hong. After Josh threw a wonderful trupe in his tenth frame, it was up to Daniel to strike for the title. On his worse lane, Hong couldn't quite get the hit, and Abigania ended a long wait for his first career JBT title with the 217-197 victory.
Kaili won three matches in the handicap finals, starting with a 214-172 win over Cuzack Bove. In a semifinal thriller, she then snuck past Jacob McGough 229-223 to reach the title game. Top seed Jerry Wang put on a brilliant performance in his first JBT event- he's only been bowling for a few months! He performed very well in the title game too, but Purugganan came up with a huge effort, firing 183 scratch for a 251-227 win over Jerry, good for the second title of her JBT career.
The Priority Girls Scratch subdivision title went to Avery Domaguin with a 226-180 win over Katelyn Abigania in a rivalry sure to be frequent this year, while Reynoso beat Josh for the U17 win. Kaili's brother Brent won the day's Ebonite ball courtesy of our fantastic title sponsor.
