E. Meadow, NY: Jason Nicholas, a 42 year old IT Director from Wantagh, NY loves AMF East Meadow. Jason won his second LIGBT tournament with both victories coming at East Meadow. Jason defeated Gary Paulsen, Massapequa, NY 243-225 to win the $1,000 top prize. While Gary took home $500 third place went to Jerry Maley, Bayside, NY with a 214 worth $350. Rounding out the final 4 was Mike Nian, also from Bayside, NY, with a 208 earning him $300.
Jason’s second title was due to a clutch finish. Scoring was low throughout the shootout and as the match entered the 7th frame the top 3 bowlers were separated by less than 5 pins. While Gary doubled in his last 2 frames Jason threw four in a row from frames 7 through 10 to take the title. It was a great finish enjoyed by a big crowd that remained to see who won.
