"THE PRIMO" at CAL BOWL- day 2
champs Elias O'Hollaren & Elias Luna; Marquan Rivers, Cerell Cardines, Madison Holman, Gavin Fernandez
The Elias-Elias Alliance (thanks Tyler) came through with wins on day two of "The Primo", a special JBT weekend hosted by Cal Bowl in Lakewood.
O'Hollaren roared through the scratch division stepladder, starting with a 247-225 win over Solomon Salama. He then got past Marquan Rivers 216-203 to get to the title match. Top seed Cerell Cardines used a big 299 to dominate the tournament, but ELias was on a big time roll, beating Cardines for the title, the third of his young JBT career.
In the handicap division, Elias also won three matches, starting with a 232-201 victory over Madison Holman. He then beat Alexis Lee to reach the title game. Top seed Gavin Fernandez was looking to avenge the day before's runner-up finish, but a tenth frame spare cost him the match, giving Luna the first JBT title of his career.
Gavin was more than consoled as the back to back second place finishes left him as easily the best combined finisher on the weekend, earning him the $500 'Primo' bonus and pushing him over $1,000 earned on the weekend. In scratch, Rivers' 5th & 3rd finishes gave him teh best combined result, earning him the $500 windfall.
O'Hollaren swept his events with a U17 win over Salama, while Madison Holman swept the Priority Girls weekend with a win over Avery Domaguin.
