Champion Dexter Sapp
November 13, 2011
Plainview, NY: The LIGBT visited AMF Plainview for its fourth event of the season. The event attracted a great crowd of 91 entries. Dexter Sapp, Valley Stream, NY won his second LIGBT title and the $600 top prize by defeating second place finisher Gary Semon ($300), Port Jefferson Station NY 267-261 (includes handicap.) Finishing third in the shootout was Ken Simpson, Shirley, NY who won $250 with a 253 game.
The final shootout was one of the closest in LIGBT history. Going into the tenth frame any of the three finalists had a chance to win. Dexter needed a double in the last frame to win the tournament and the two handed lefty threw two perfect shots to win the title. Gary Semon fell just short of his first LIGBT title and Ken Simpson was looking for his second LIGBT trophy.
Dexter Sapp had an incredible day. Dexter lead the first squad with an 833 series which seeded him directly into the final shootout. But if that wasn’t enough Dexter re-entered the second squad and lead that one with an 857! A total of 19 bowlers made the finals and shared in a $3,320 prize fund.
