ROB FOERSTER WINS HIS THIRD LIGBT TITLE

Posted On: June 20, 2015

Wantagh, NY:  Rob Foerster, East Meadow, NY, gave himself a $1,000 birthday present by winning LIGBT’s first Friday night event at AMF Wantagh. Rob won his third LIGBT title with a 253 handicap game to defeat second place finisher Sam Cooke, Patchogue, NY, by 12 pins. Sam earned $500 with his 241 while Damilyn LaCarruba, Lindenhurst, NY, finished third with a 215 worth $300. Rounding out the top 4 was Joe Kingston, Ronkonkoma, NY, with a 213 worth $250.

For Rob to win his third title he had to overcome a tremendous handicap disadvantage. Rob, who has one of the highest averages in the club, had to spot as much as 25 pins in handicap. Rob threw a no-tap 300 game by shooting all 9’s and strikes including a four timer. He had to mark in the final frame to secure his title. Sam, who finished second, bowled well including a triple and double which forced Rob to keep on striking to win. 

The AMF Wantagh tournament drew an impressive Friday night crowd of 104 entries, advanced 19 bowlers to the finals, and paid out $3,920 plus two Brunswick balls. Kegel’s “Abbey Road” pattern (40 feet) was used resulting in moderate scoring; the cut was 716 in the 7pm squad and 708 in the 9pm squad. High series of the tournament was shot by Bobby Wunsch, East Meadow, NY with an 873 in the 7pm squad. Brunswick awarded two bowling balls to the squad leaders which were Bobby Wunsch (873) at 7pm and Sam Cooke (773) at 9pm.

LISA LAGUARINO WINS FIRST TITLE AT AMF GARDEN CITY

Posted On: June 08, 2015

Garden City, NY:  Lisa LaGuarino, a left handed bowler from North Bellmore, NY, won her first LIGBT title at AMF Garden City. Lisa needed a mark in the final frame to secure the title which earned her the $1,000 top prize and a beautiful trophy. Lisa shot a 237 handicap game which was 15 pins more than second place finisher Chris Odle, Brooklyn, NY who shot a 222 and earned $600. Third place went to Joe Hoenig, E. Meadow, NY with a 198 worth $400.

The final shootout was a nerve racking event as all 3 bowlers were looking for their first LIGBT title. Lisa’s victory was due to her consistent marking of frames as her only open was a split in the second frame. Joe marked in his first 5 frames but had 3 opens late hurting his chances at victory. Chris had a slow start but finished with 5 strikes in a row to force Lisa to mark in the tenth frame. Lisa struck on her first ball in the final frame to win the title.

The AMF Garden City tournament drew an incredible summer crowd of 131 entries, advanced 20 bowlers to the finals, and paid out $4,830. Kegel’s “Winding Road” pattern (39 feet) was used resulting in moderate scoring; the cut was 710 in the 1pm squad and 700 in the 3pm squad. High series of the tournament was shot by Scott Kampf, Levittown, NY with a 760 in the 3pm squad.
