E. Meadow, NY: The LIGBT, sponsored by Storm, ran its 6th event of its 12 tournament House Shot Series at AMF E. Meadow. The handicap champion was Ray Tang, College Point, NY earning $1,000. This was Ray’s 1st LIGBT singles title. The scratch winner was Joe LaBargo, Bayside, NY earning $500. Joe’s scratch title was his 7th victory over the past 8 years.
The final handicap shootout, where the top two from both age divisions combined for a 1-game shootout, was a relatively low scoring event. It was clear early the title grab would be between Damian Rodriguez, Freeport, NY and Ray Tang. Damian had the early lead but single pin opens in the 4th and 6th frames gave Ray the lead which he would never relinquish.
Ray, who shot the only clean game in the shootout, locked up his title with a spare and strike in his final frame giving him a 226-205 victory. While Damian earned $500 for his second-place finish, third went to Joe LaBargo with a 193 worth $300. Rounding out the top 4 was Karen Davis, Brooklyn, NY with a 158 earning $250.
The scratch event was won by Joe LaBargo with a 4-game total of 999 (250 average.) Joe earned $500 for his scratch victory. Finishing in 2nd place was Kyle Durfee, Levittown, NY with a 963 worth $300. Rounding out the top 3, and earning $200, was Darius Fuller, Bay Shore, NY with a 955 series.
