champs and finalists
Cesar Padilla and Hayden King claimed JBT titles in exciting dual Mojave and Arizona Conference action at Laughlin's Riverside Lanes.
Padilla began a dramatic climb up the ladder with a 209-181 win over Sebastian Huffman. In the next match Cesar filled the 20 in the tenth he needed to tie Chris Mayes at 192. Both bowlers struck in the ensuing rolloff, but Padilla's second strike beat Mayes' 8 count, and he advanced to take on Chris' brother Hunter for the title. Hunter was looking to avenge a runner-up finish the night before, but the 6-8 had other ideas, as he left it an unlikely three times on the left lane (converting one), allowing Padilla, who stayed clean, escape with a 198-191 win, and his third career JBT victory.
Bailey Knight and Bryce Nakunz both rebounded from a rough Friday night to reach the handicap finals, and in their first match, Bailey prevailed in a close one 189-183. Newcomer Elijah McMakin then stopped Knight 230-213 to advance to the finale. Top seed Hayden King's last visit to the finals ended in heartbreak with an infamous finish at the Mojave doubles, but this time it was elation, as he finished strong for a 225-186 win, and first career JBT title.
Aileen Linares rebounded from a rough night of her own Friday to win today's Girls Scratch event with a 215-189 win over Madison Holman. Huffman's frustating carry continued in the U17 final, which Seth Stovall took advantage of for a 174-155 grindout win in that subdivision.
