His­toric win for Og­den Gran­ite

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Forthe 17th year in a row, lo­cal Stanstead busi­nesses came up with some com­pet­i­tive teams to take part in the Stanstead En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre’s an­nual Friendly Com­pany Bowl­ing Tour­na­ment, held last Satur­day at the Stanstead bowl­ing al­ley. For the first time in the tour­na­ment’s his­tory, both of the tro­phies (to­tal pin scratch and av­er­ages) were won by the same team: Og­den Gran­ite. “This year the top three teams were very close, with Nanny Doreen’s Day­care com­ing se­cond and Res­i­dence fu­neraire de Stanstead com­ing third,” said Nick­o­las Wood, an or­ga­nizer of the fundraiser.

Char­lie Poulin, who was play­ing on the Pro En­ergy Odette Caron team, was the only player of the tour­na­ment to get a per­fect score of 300.

Al­though there were not as many teams as last year, the event was still able to raise $750 to be shared among the fol­low­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions who pro­vide ser­vices to chil­dren: Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey, Stanstead Soc­cer Club, Ray Par­ent’s soft­ball league, and the two el­e­men­tary schools, Sun­ny­side and Jardin-des-Fron­tieres. Money was also raised through half-and-half draw­ings for the ju­nior bowl­ing pro­gram.

“We had four less teams this year but we’ll be hold­ing it again next Fe­bru­ary and we hope to at­tract more teams then,” con­cluded Nick­o­las.
