champs Cameron Smith & Jack Parcell
Cameron Smith and Jack Parcell persevered through a challenging sneak preview of the 2011 Main Event scratch lane condition to capture JBT titles in exciting Mojave Conference action at Texas Star Lanes.
Eric Hatchett opened up the scratch division stepladder finals with a 200-188 win over Zack Hattori. Hatchett then snuck by Brad Hansen 203-194. Dallas Leong then stopped Hatchett's run 191-165 to advance to the title game.
Top seed Cameron Smith struggled on a tough shot last week, but came alive today to nab the top seed. The title match was very well bowled by both players. After a solid-9 in the 11th frame to finish at 205, Smith needed any spare-strike to win. After converting the 2-8, Smith regrouped and threw a perfect strike for the thrilling 205-204 win and the 22nd title of his terrific JBT career.
Luke Jordan, down from Washington for the Invitational weekend, opened up the handicap division stepladder finals with a 210-173 win over Donovan Koff. Jordan then snuck by Alexis Atkin 217-215, and followed with another close win, this time 195-191 over Justin Villa, to climb to the title game.
Top seed Jack Parcell was below the Invitational cut line going into the day. His clutch performance all day erased that trouble, and he was able to take it all the way and become a JBT champion by defeating Jordan 212-172 in the title game. He followed this up with an 17th place finish in the Invitational the next day, earning just enough points to sneak into the 20th and final spot for the TPC- what an amazing weekend for Parcell!
