Friday Night All-Stars: Week 21 Review

Match #1 – LaMonica (19) vs. King (12)

Despite a strong start by Team King, Team LaMonica battled back in the last two games to take back grand total as well as two individual totals. Team LaMonica relied heavily on the ends of their lineups with leadoff Cyndie Barnett (902) and Sam Gelardi (1024) both having good nights and capturing a big 8 points. Team King took a fairly big hit at total due to a rough night from Patrick Walker (739), which capitalized on by Jeff Bradshaw (791) who also had a less than spectacular night. This was nearly balanced by a third consecutive week over 1000 from Karen Armstrong (1046), very easily taking the first three games from spare Micheal Young (873). Both anchors, Sam and Wayne King (930), saved their best games for game four shooting 304-314 respectively.

Match #2 – Cousins (12) vs. Enns (19)

A grinding match with rather underwhelming scoring saw Team Enns take a much-needed win to keep them in the hunt for the top half. The most impressive shooting of the night came from Gillian LaMonica (861) at leadoff, who took a dominant win over Dwight Hurd (725). Team Cousins also saw success at the anchor position with Cindy Cousins (877) holding on to take total over Glen Howarth (858), marking Cindy’s fourth consecutive winning week. Despite these victories Team Enns won the battle in the middle positions. An average night from Garry Bell (857) and a very rollercoaster-esque night from Craig Enns (834) was more than enough handle Shannon Pruden (714) and Char McIvor (741) who both struggled, beating average in just one game between them.

Match #3 – B. Jeffers (22) vs. Rodych (9)

An integral win for Team B. Jeffers to keep them comfortably in the top 5 teams, Team Rodych also comfortably holds onto their last place position. Team captain Matt Rodych (986) sweeping Ben Jeffers (828) was the silver-lining for his team, with Matt bowling much better than previous weeks and a lot more typical of what we would expect to see from him. Alas, that was as far as the good fortune went for Team Rodych. Adam Williamson (929) dominated with a 205-point victory over Carter Schade (724), a crucial win to end his four-week losing streak. The highlight of the night for Team B. Jeffers was the monstrous night from anchor Tyson Nelson (1263) setting the new league high total and dwarfing Randy Morrissette (958). Season series Team B. Jeffers (41) 2 - 0 Team Rodych (21)


Dominant Performances

Tyson Nelson – 318, 331, 344 (1), 945 (3), 1263 (4)

Match #5 – Youzwa (9) vs. Stevenson (22)

This was a huge match in terms of standings, with this win Team Stevenson narrows the gap to only 5-points between them and Team Youzwa, who see their gap from the top 5 teams widen. Team Stevenson won this match due to the sheer well-roundedness of their lineup, notably 3 of 4 bowlers between 900-925. The key was in the middle positions where Tyler Reynolds (923) and Jayden Nickerson (909) both came in clutch in the last game to win their totals from Jenna Gillrie (896) and Chloe Fleming (856) respectively. They made up 77 pins in the last game, which was even more important when you consider grand total was only won by 100 pins. The lone winner of Team Youzwa was their captain Colton Youzwa (1026) who handled fellow captain Dylan Stevenson (911) with relative ease.

Season series Team Youzwa (29) 1 - 1 Team Stevenson (33).


Dominant Performances

Colton Youzwa – 312 (1), 1026 (4)

Match #6 – Cook (23.5) vs. Bartram (7.5)

Team Cook came out firing last week, with their bottom three positions combining for a 265 average, on a mission to keep their A-side dreams alive. This was an unfortunate matchup for Team Bartram’s second Colton Harris (937) as he got only a single point for his second-best week of the season, thanks to Jayson May (976) also putting up his second-best week of the season. Team Cook piled it on, with Alyssa Campbell (1096) beating up on Cordell as if he wasn’t even there and Trevor Cook (1115) throwing lights out. At anchor, Jeston Bartram (918) held his own for the first game but after that unraveled more and more as the night went on. Season series Team Cook (44.5) 2 - 0 Team Bartram (17.5).


Dominant Performances

Jayson May – 976 (4)

Alyssa Campbell – 311 (1), 850(3), 1096 (4)

Trevor Cook – 320 (1), 854 (3), 1115 (4)

Jeston Bartram – 310 (1)

Match #7 – Orne (27) vs. Devenney (4)

A match between one of the hottest teams this half versus one of the coldest teams this half went exactly as you would have expected it to. Team Orne dominated this match despite none of their regulars even being over average on the night. Spare, Sandi Anderson (921) led the charge, sweeping Mike Devenney (660), even taking a 157-153 win to finish off the night. Jennifer Duncan (810) at leadoff picks up her 8th consecutive win, beating Neil Stewart (760) in a matchup featuring a couple of close games. This marks Team Orne’s 9th consecutive win and 6th over 20 points during that same span.

Season series Team Orne (41.5) 1 - 1 Team Devenney (20.5).


Dominant Performances

Sandi Anderson – 561 (2)

Match #8 – Hurd (14) vs. Lourenco (17)

Team Hurd suffers their second straight close loss, while Team Lourenco needed this win to keep themselves within reach of the top 8. This match was a nail-biter with grand total being the difference in a win or loss and Team Lourenco took it by a whopping 3 pins, thanks to a 901-889 win in the last game. Team Lourenco can thank their top half for this win, with Tabatha Gelardi (792) and Dave Duncan (938) taking a combined 7 points, including Dave putting the team on his shoulders game four with his 305. Brett Hendrickson (1011) once again had another solid night, squeaking out a win over Belle Lourenco (952). The anchor position saw Kevin Naugler (923) have a bounce back week, taking it out on Ethan Buckman (790) who struggled throughout the night.

Season series Team Lourenco (26.5) 1 - 1 Team Hurd (35.5).


Dominant Performances

Dave Duncan – 305 (1)

Brett Hendrickson – 1011 (4)
