MESA EAST BOWL
champs Josh Molloy & Mike McQuisten; Gavin Holter, Madison Holman, Chris Mayes, Darren Fletcher
Josh Molloy and Mike McQuisten each earned their first JBT titles, in terrific JBT Arizona Conference action at Mesa East Bowl.
After qualifying, bowlers competed in 'pick your survivor', with the low score on each pair eliminated, but the higher seeds choosing who is on each pair. Molloy earned the top seed and chose well, picking the right opponents including Tim Hill in the semifinals, who he beat 249-211 to advance. The other semifinals was one of the matches of the year, as Chris Mayes and Matthew Garrett each had eight strikes in nine frames, and Mayes came up with three in the tenth for a 280-266 win to advance to his first title match. In the finale, Mayes slowed down a bit, while Josh remained on cruise control, winning the game for a long awaited first career JBT title.
In the handicap division, sixteen survivors were carved down to four, and in those matches a resurgent Darren Fletcher beat Brockton Scotford 239-207, while McQuisten stopped red-hot Madison Holman 221-186 to set up the finale. McQuisten rolled a six-bagger early in the title match to put away a win popular with his fellow GCU Antelopes, and his first career JBT title.
Gavin Holter beat Payton Workman for the day's U17 win, while Priority Girls Scratch went to Holman with a win over Rachael Berg.
