PALM SPRINGS LANES
champs Ben Canfield & Marc Villalobos
Ben Canfield and Marc Villalobos captured JBT titles in exciting Southern California Conference action at Palm Springs Lanes.
Prior to the title match, Dallas Leong was the star of the scratch division stepladder, as he began a climb with a 266-237 win over Russ Oviatt in a strike-filled match. Dallas then stopped Cortez Schenck 218-206, and followed with a 218-206 win over Billy Dacanay to advance to the title match.
Top seed Canfield had squeezed out Dacanay and Schenck by only two pins for the #1 position, and given Leong's previous stepladder scores that made all the difference. Leong slowed down in the title match and Ben took advantage for a 216-173 win, and the 21st JBT title of his exceptional career.
Ryan Galland experienced a nearly identical four matches to Dallas in the handicap stepladder. He began his climb with a 257-209 win over Kyle Reed. He followed with a 226-210 win over Bex "I finish fourth a lot" Boyko, and then defeated Taylor Berry 222-192 to reach the title match.
Top seed Marc Villalobos enjoyed his career-best JBT event with great bowling all day, and didn't slow down one bit in thr final game. He stopped Ryan's run 258-182 to win the first title of his JBT career.
Ashley Dunn continued her dominance in the JBT women's series, defeating Bex Boyko 188-162 for the day's girl's crown.
