AMF UNION HILLS (Sunday)
champs and finalists
Daunte Uribarri and Cameron Coleman survived strong fields to capture initial JBT titles in exciting Arizona Conference action at Phoenix's Union Hills Lanes.
After five games, qualifiers out of the high scoring field moved on to survivor rounds, with the low game per pair eliminated until only one remained. In scratch, 20 qualifiers were carved down to four, and in those semifinal games, Brandon Rother eliminated Josh Burnett, and Daunte Uribarri deteated Amarr Bryant to set up the title match. Rother was looking for his third scratch title of the season and remained close to Uribarri through six frames, but a determined Daunte threw great shots and struck out from there, earning a long awaited first career JBT title with the 267-223 win.
Twenty-four handicap survivors were whittled down to four, and in their semifinal matches, Coleman stopped Brockton Scotford 234-180, while Miguel Espinoza kept the dream of back to back wins alive with a 270-236 win over impressive newcomer Jacob Vasquez to reach the title match. In the finale, Miguel couldn't find the same magic that he had all weekend long, and Cameron was able to take advantage with another strong score, capturing his first career title with the win over Espinoza.
Jason Gootzeit also had a breakthrough day, leading qualifying, and earning the U17 win with a victory over Harper Schmidt. Koryn Marquez did what not may others are doing these days, beating Katelyn Abigania to earn the Girls Scratch title. Cesar Padilla won a ball of his choice from the Brands of Brunswick, and Espinoza and Cayden Matherly earned one hour Specto sessions at B3 performance based on their combined weekend performance.

If you're not sure about dress code, check with us. If you're new to us, the vast majority of the bowlers do dress in the 'bonus' dress code, and those points become very important, so plan accordingly.
