Wantagh, NY: Michael Delillo, a 47-year-old left-hander from Levittown, NY, won LIGBT’s latest sport shot tournament at AMF Wantagh. Mike’s first LIGBT title became reality when he defeated defending AMF Wantagh champion Eddie Eng, Flushing, NY, 227-220 in the final shootout. Mike earned $1,000 for his victory while Eddie took home $600 for his second-place finish. Also competing in the final shootout was third place finisher Charlie Rembert, Floral Park, NY, earning $400 with a 219. Fourth place went to Zachary Koffsky, W. Islip, NY with a 204 worth $300.

The final shootout was an exciting match as all 4 competitors had a shot at the title going into the last 2 frames. When Michael tripled in frames 8-10 it forced Eddie to double in the 10th to win. Eddie threw the first strike but left a split on his second shot to settle for the runner-up position. Charlie threw a triple in the last 2 frames to move up to third place. Zach, who tripled in frames 6-8, controlled his own destiny but he opened the last 2 frames to finish 4th.

The LIGBT 2-squad sport shot tournament drew a wonderful fall crowd of 100 entries, paid out $4,960 in prize money, and had 25 bowlers go to the cashing window. The side action awarded an additional $6,145 bringing the total event payout to $11,105. Cut scores to cash on the 43-foot pattern were 668 at 1pm and 683 at 3pm. The wildcard winner, which is the highest 6-game series by a non-finalist, was Max Thomas, N. Babylon, NY with a 1310. The two squad leaders were Johannes Schulz at 1pm with a 771 and Ryon Lee with a 777 at 3pm.
