YOUTH BOWLER SCOTT KAMPF WIN HIS FIRST LIGBT TITLE

Posted On: March 25, 2013

Babylon, NY: Scott Kampf, a youth bowler from Levittown, NY, performed like an adult at LIGBT’s Winter Major to win a $3,000 scholarship and his first LIGBT trophy. Finishing second was Ed Eng, Flushing, NY earning $1,500 and third place went to Michael Conroy, Mahopac, NY who earned $750. A total of 343 bowlers competed in the 3-day tournament which paid out over $30,000.

Scott, who comes from a very fine bowling family, shot the high handicap series of the tournament with an 846 giving him 3-byes in the finals. Scott was fortunate to advance to the final shootout as two bowlers ahead of him opened in the final frame while he doubled. The final shootout had a shocking finish as Eddie Eng, who started the final match with 5 consecutive strikes, needed a mark in the tenth to win the tournament. Ed left a 3-10 split which he didn’t convert giving Scott the title. Finals scores in the shootout were Scott 275, Ed 268, and Mike 206.

Scoring throughout the weekend was relatively high compare to regular LIGBT events. But while the cut scores were always in the 700’s throughout the weekend the final round cut scores were much lower probably due to the pressure of bowling for big money. The LIGBT gave away 3 marathon entries into The Amateur Bowler’s Championships in Las Vegas for the high 6-game series each day. The winners were; Eric Vecchi, Dave Soren, and Bill Verni.

LIGBT’s next tournament is a regular 2-squad handicap tournament at AMF Plainview on Sunday, April 7th (1pm & 3pm) For complete results of the AMF Babylon tournament please visit www.ligbtour.com. The LIGBT is sponsored by Brunswick, Kegel, Randi Siegel Law Offices, Farmingdale Wellness Centers, and CLS Custom Upholsterers.

Posted On: March 18, 2013


 

Syosset, NY: Ian Lynch, Glen Cove, NY earned $1,000 and the Champions Trophy at AMF Syosset on St. Patrick’s Day. In one of the lowest scoring final shootouts, which included 14 opens between the three bowlers, Ian emerged victorious by rolling 2 strikes (and they were ugly ones) in the final frame. Ian’s final score was 205 (160 scratch) which was 4 pins higher than second place finisher Rob Spauster, Levittown, NY who earned $500 with a 201 (156 scratch). Finishing third was Rich Perrotti, Levittown, NY who rolled a 190 handicap game to earn $250. All three bowlers were looking for their first LIGBT trophy.

The final shootout was a test of futility. Ian started with a double and then had 4 straight opens. Rob stayed clean the first four frames but then opened 3 out of the next 4. Rich started his game with 4 open frames in the first 5. The match ended just as it should with Ian needing a double to win and he threw two “nose dive” strikes. Everyone in attendance had a great laugh.

The AMF Syosset tournament drew a great crowd of 114 bowlers for the 2-squad event. A total of 24 bowlers cashed in the $4,050 prize fund. The scores were moderate all day as the cut in the 1pm squad was 680 and 712 in the 3pm squad. High handicap series went to Lou Medina, W. Babylon, NY with a 766.
