Our event this weekend was at Bowlero Avondale lanes and had a great turn out! We had 105 total entries (65 qualifying & 40 economy parlay) for 3 squads, 28 prize winners and a 1 in 3.75 cash ratio and paid out over $5,900 in main and side event prizefunds. The players bowled on the 43ft Brunswick Phantom oil pattern that was a very low scoring event. Players could play in just about any part of the lane, but there wasn’t a lot of margin of error and the pair to pair differences were also tough.
We want to welcome Lisa Perez, Michael Boglio, Patrick Jones, Eric Cooke, Terry Newsome, Chrissy Wheeler, Eric Bryson, Quintin White and Ivory Carson to the SFT AHT family! We hope you guys all had a good time in your first SFT AHT event. Congrats to Lisa Perez and Kyle Wakefield on being this weekend’s only Parlay Power Players, both Kyle and Lisa made it to the quarterfinals on their $25 investment. Also congrats to Jason Bach, Kyle Wakefield, Quintin White, Lisa Perez and Dave J. Smith on making it to their first ever SFT AHT quarterfinals or their first in quite a while! Congrats to Jason Bach for winning Momma’s Mystery Pot, with a 206 score, for $500.00!!! Your winner of the free plastic ball, with an option to upgrade to any Track High-Performance ball for $85.00, was Kyle Wakefield
The quarter finals were on fresh conditions and it the scores were pretty low with the average cut score to make the next round being almost a minus score. The A Division had #1 seed Matthew Zweig (+26) taking on #2 seed Jim Bungard (-12), in the B Division it was #1 seed Jason Bach (+32) facing off with #2 seed Kyle Wakefield (+22), and the C Division would see #1 seed Lisa Perez (+43) against #2 seed Chuck Lucas (+10).
The A division was a back and forth match with Jim Bungard able to stay clean in the final couple of frames to get by Matthew Zweig, 186 to 180. In the B Division Jason Bach would struggle to get lined up and was defeated by Kyle Wakefield, 205 to 159. The C Division would all come down to the final frame as Lisa Perez would finish with a 242 leaving Chuck Lucas needing a strike on his first ball to advance. Chuck’s first shot came up a bit short leaving nine-pin and he would fill the tenth to finish at 233.
Going into the Final match all three bowlers were looking for their very first AHT SFT title. Jim was making his 2nd Finals appearance in his fourth event ever. Kyle Wakefield was bowling in his first ever Final match as was Lisa Perez. Both bowlers were this weekend’s Parlay Power Players had a chance to turn their $25 into $1,000!
The Final match was very back and forth with all of the players being in the mix for the majority of the game. However, some late opens by Jim put him the most behind, but still in the match. Kyle was able to double in the 9th and 10th to give himself a chance but it was too little too late. Lisa would finish well ahead with a score of 230 giving her her first AHT SFT title and $1,000!!! Congrats to Kyle for 2nd place and Jim for 3rd place.
Thanks to everyone that came out! We look forward to seeing you all at our 3-Day Labor Day Major Event next weekend at Bowlero Kyrene. Hope you all have a good week!!!
