champs Brandon Loyear & Tyler Satter
Brandon Loyear tasted JBT victory for the first time, while Tyler Satter scored a very important second win, in exciting JBT Pacific Northwest Conference action at Dave Husted's Milwaukie Bowl.
Scores were very high all day long, a relative rarity in this Conference, and Perry Crowell, who rolled the event's only 300 game, came up with another big number in a 268-223 win over Cameron Weier to open up the scratch division stepladder finals. Jeremy Witt then beat Crowell 235-158. Loyear then turned the tables on Witt 227-183 to advance to the title game.
Top seed Tanner Spacey had crept up the leaderboard all day, rolling a 732 semifinal set to grab the number one spot. However, Tanner, looking for his first win, struggled in the title game, and while Brandon didn't put up a huge number, his 194-163 win was plenty good enough for the first title of his JBT career.
Ryan Laird opened up the handicap division stepladder finals with a 261-201 victory over Luke Jordan, who was making his third finals in a row, having gone back to back in Las Vegas last weekend. Brandon Myers, who led six of the eight rounds, then edged Laird 221-216. JBT rookie Aarika Paolo then beat Myers 222-190 to advance to the title match.
Top seed Satter had been slipping in points since his hot start this season, but turned it around by grabbing the lead here. Despite a good effort from newcomer Aarika, he was able to stay in control in the title game, and his 215-197 win earned him the second title of his JBT career. It also jumped him right back in the thick of the points and Bowler of the Year races with just three events left.
