The BuddiesProShop.com Adult Bowlers Tour held its 7th of 8 events on the year….a $1000 guaranteed First Place Event at ABC East Lanes in Harrisburg, PA. On this day, 26 scratch bowlers took on the 2016 Singles/Doubles Pattern of Men’s Nationals for this year. Not only was it a competitive pattern but a tune up for many. Many of our bowlers were heading within the coming weeks to Nationals and would see this challenging pattern.
A great story developed from this event. Our champion was former PJBT winner and Matt’s college teammate, Andy Carson. Carson was a regular PJBT bowler in the early years of our tour. His last PJBT title came almost 14 years ago in our 4 Person Team Event in May 2002. Carson also bowled collegiately with Matt at Penn State Berks over a decade ago.
Carson shot games of 223, 231, 241, 182, 255, and 226 during the qualifying round. This block of 1358 for 6 (+158) had him leading the field into the stepladder finals. Behind Carson was #2 seed Scott Kinkaid, #3 seed Joe Paluszek, #4 seed Mike Markis, and #5 seed Greg Bruff. The stepladder went as follows. Markis defeated Bruff in Game 1 244-173. Markis continued his winning ways by defeating Joe Paluszek in a tight match 238-234. Markis then advanced to face Scott Kinkaid in the semi-final. This match went to Kinkaid. Scott shot 204 and beat Markis with 183. This advanced Kinkaid into the title match vs Andy Carson. In the final, Carson got off to a strong start and never looked back. Carson defeated Kinkaid in the title match 247-206. Carson took home the top prize of $1000.
