AMF FIREBIRD LANES
champs John Malone & Kailee Wilcox with Liam Hardman, Bud Sicard
John Malone and Kailee Wilcox picked up JBT titles in exciting Pacific Northwest Conference action at Salem's AMF Firebird Lanes.
Liam Hardman opened the scratch division stepladder finals with a 223-202 win over Kyle Adams. John then raced off the first eight strikes en route to a 267-234 win over Hardman. The title match was a thriller between Malone and top seed Bud Sicard. After a short count in the tenth frame left John finished at 236, Sicard needed all three in the tenth to win. He tripped a 2-pin for the first strike, but could not get the second hit, giving a relieved Malone his second career JBT title.
Scores were high in the handicap division, and it continued with Anna Gatlin beating Ewan Oester 269-231 to begin the stepladder. In the semifinal, Kailee Wilcox, who earlier had the only front-nine of the weekend, topped her good friend 256-234 to reach the title match. Trevor Wodesky grabbed the top seed away from Kailee by just two pins with a huge semifinal output, but could not find the same look in the finale. Wilcox remained red-hot, winning 257-191 for her first career JBT title, to go along with a high school title won the day before, for a pretty amazing weekend!
Aubrey Harding won her first Priority Girls Scratch subdivision with a win over Payton Bower, while Liam won an entertaining U17 finale against Bud 235-222. Lucky bowlers tried their hands at 'trick shots', with Lohrghan Ziegler's lefty 9-count the most successful result. Thanks to everyone at Firebird for hosting us, and everyone for attending.
