LENNY NEEDS OVERTIME TO WIN HIS 2ND LIGBT TITLE

Posted On: June 26, 2017

New Hyde Park, NY:  It took extra frames for Lenny Nguyen, a 50 year old accountant from Flushing, NY, to win his second LIGBT title. Lenny was tied with Monique Compton, Bronx, NY at 232 after 10 frames. To break the tie a 2-frame roll off was run with Lenny defeating Monique 40-37 to win the $1,000 top prize. Monique won $500 for her second place finish while third place went to Andrew Mienkiewicz, Massapequa, NY with a 205 worth $300. Rounding out the top 4 was Mack Oakman Jr., Melville, NY with a 190 earning him $250.

The final shootout was dominated early by Monique as she threw a triple and had no opens after 6 frames. But her 50 pin lead evaporated quickly when she opened twice late and Lenny tripled in frames 6-8. When Lenny threw a 5 count on his fill ball in the 10th it gave Monique a chance to win. All Monique needed was 8 pins but when she got 7 it forced the roll off which she lost by a mere 3 pins.

The Herrill Lanes event drew a nice summer crowd of 96 entries, advanced 19 bowlers to the finals (almost 1 in 3) and paid out $3,910. The cut scores on the “Middle Road” pattern were low; 667 & 701.
