champs Keith Fung, Heather Penatzer, and Cristian Roque
Keith Fung, Heather Penatzer, and Cristian Roque all came up with clutch finishes to capture JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action at Antelope Lanes in Prescott Valley.
Roque, who won his first title earlier this season, defeated fellow Uptown Alley bowler Rachael Berg 192-167 in one semifinal. In teh other match, it was Uptown victorious again, as Dante Rohe stopped 9 year-old Tyler Hedges 199-185 to set up the title game.
After Roque finished with a clean 195 game that included two 2-7 conversions, Rohe needed to double to win. Dante was unable to get the first hit, giving Cristian an exciting 227-214 win, and his second career JBT title.
Penatzer, home from a very successful freshman year at Sam Houston State, doubled in her tenth frame to shutout Gillian Coyle 214-193 to win the second of three girls' series events she needs to qualify for the Girls TPC this summer.
Fung raced out to the front five in the scratch division, but Oregon bowler Brandon Myers countered with a mid-game six bagger to get right back in the game. Keith got a tenth frame double to apparently secure the win, but a short count on the fill ball left Myers with a chance to strike out to tie. Brandon was up to the task, burying three straight to tie it up at 244. In the ensuing one-shot rolloff, Fung recovered brilliantly with a flush strike, and when a 10-pin refused to fall on Myers' attempt, Fung escaped with the dramatic win and second career JBT title.
