Wantagh, NY:  Tommy Grunwald, Astoria, NY earned $1,000 by winning his first LIGBT title at AMF Wantagh. Tommy earned the champions trophy with a fantastic performance in the final shootout rolling a 283 handicap game (256 scratch) which was 15 pins more than second place finisher Anatoly Khodorkovsky, Brooklyn, NY. Anatoly, who threw an incredible 268 handicap game, earned $500 while third place finisher, Don Crummell, Freeport, NY was third with a 216 worth $300.

The final shootout was close early as Anatoly actually lead after 5 frames. In the sixth frame Tom started a string of 6 strikes that secured his victory. Both Tom and Anatoly rolled cleaned games. It was a little frustrating for Anatoly as his 268 handicap game would win most LIGBT events.

The AMF Wantagh tournament drew an incredible summer crowd of 121 bowlers. Kegel’s 40 foot “Abbey Road” pattern was put down and if you found the shot you could score well. The cut score in the 1pm squad was 666 and 669 in the 3pm squad. High handicap series in the 1pm squad was thrown by Angela DeSena, Brooklyn, NY with a 794. The 3pm squad leader was Elizabeth John, New York, NY who rolled the high series of the day; 818.

LIGBT’s next tournament is a 3-day major event at AMF East Meadow over July 4th weekend. Top prizes at this tournament will pay $2,000-1st and $1,000-2nd.

Farmingdale, NY:  Ron Moszkow, Huntington Station, NY, won his first LIGBT title and it all happened at Farmingdale Lanes. Fighting a painful hip, which will be operated on over the summer, Ron shot a 230 handicap game to defeat two other grandfathers to win the $1,000 top prize. Finishing second with a 215 was Ed Ryan, Wantagh, NY earning $500 and third went to Ken Simpson, Shirley, NY winning $250 with a 200.

The final shootout was very tight the first 7 frames. In fact, Ron had 2 opens in the first 4 frames so his title aspirations were not looking good early. But a string of 4 strikes beginning in the 6th frame by Ron overcame the 15 pin deficit and propelled him to victory.

The Farmingdale tournament drew a nice crowd of 100 bowlers. The shot for the tournament was PBA’s Cheetah, although it didn’t play as it normally does, and the scores were fairly low. The cut score in the in the 1pm squad was 671, and in the 3pm squad 670. High handicap series was shot by Ed Ryan, who actually shot the two highest series of the day; 790 and 783.
