Bowlers gear­ing up for Zone ‘S’ qualifier

The Beacon Herald - - SPORTS - LARRY PALMBY

It is that time of year again – the Zone ‘S’ qualifier for the On­tario Open 5 Pin Bowl­ing provin­cial cham­pi­onships in Ot­tawa on Easter week­end of 2019.

Vic­to­ria Bowl, Kitch­ener was the site this past Sun­day for the first block of 10 games for Open qual­i­fiers and five games for Se­nior Open bowlers. The long dis­tance for the provin­cials this year could be a rea­son for sev­eral lo­cal bowlers to not en­ter. We have five ladies bowl­ing in a field of 15, and four of them are in the top nine po­si­tions de­spite a rocky start by a few.

Leasa Kendry-Sch­nei­der is cur­rently in sec­ond place with a 10-game to­tal of 2,498, Karly Horn is sit­ting fifth with 2,277, Caylie Butcher is close be­hind in sev­enth with 2,252, and Tisha VonWitzen­hausen is in 13th place with 2,040.

David Cas­sidy is sit­ting in 24th in the Men’s Divi­sion with 1,926, Gord Howe is 25th with 1,918, and Brad McIn­tyre sits 26th with 1,850. Gord is also in the Se­nior Men’s divi­sion in 10th place out of 13 with 1,049 for five games.

This year we do not have an en­try in the Se­nior Ladies Divi­sion. Good luck next week as the tour­na­ment shifts to Mike’s Lanes.

Mike’s 5 Pin Bowlers’ As­so­ci­a­tion DC Fi­nals of the O5PBA Hi-Low Dou­bles were last Sun­day, with 20 teams qual­i­fy­ing for two spots in the provin­cial cham­pi­onships in Brant­ford Feb. 23, 2019. Six­teen of those teams fin­ished on the plus side of this three-game pins-over-av­er­age for­mat, and the top teams sim­ply flip-flopped po­si­tions through­out.

Mark Labrance rolled a 310 sin­gle in game one as he and part­ner Carlo Palone sat first with a +155, but they slipped and even­tu­ally fin­ished fifth with a +123. Our DC cham­pi­ons from the Men’s Ma­jor League started in sev­enth place with a re­spectable +46, rolled a +97 in game two, mov­ing into sec­ond place and fin­ished with a +99 to take first place with +242. Fred Foun­tain rolled 727 for a +127, and Norm Brad­shaw added a 700 for +115. Run­ners-up from the Mixed Plant League, Deb­bie Palmby and Ron Sch­nei­der started sec­ond with +105, took the lead with a +51 in game two, and a -9 dropped them back to sec­ond with +147.

Jon Ga­gan and Kyle De­bus from the Men’s League fin­ished third with a +134, only seven pins back, and only five pins back from them for a fourth-place fin­ish were Mercedes Gra­ham and Joanne Ben­nett from the YABA with +129. Jon rolled the high sin­gle and triple for the tour­na­ment 346 and 790. Con­grat­u­la­tions and good luck in Brant­ford.
