Friday Night All-Stars: Week 9 in Review

Match #1 – Bartram (9) vs. LaMonica (22)

This match was pretty heavily dominated by Team LaMonica, with the exception of leadoff Cyndie Barnett (782) who did not bowl bad, but was crushed by a monster week from Colton Harris (977). This will bring him up 8 pins in average, bringing him closer to second bowler Derek Sanderson (681) who had a game three misstep shooting 120 on an otherwise decent night. Struggles continue at anchor for Team Bartram as Cordell Galbecka (733) is lucky to have pulled away with two points, especially in a game three matchup you never want to see at anchor, 164-140 over Andrew LaMonica (929).

Dominant Performances

Colton Harris – 977 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team LaMonica ( X )

Trevor’s Pick: Team LaMonica ( X )

Match #2 – Enns (10) vs. Youzwa (21)

Any night your captain shoots a 1200 you know it was probably a good night, as was the case for Team Youzwa who saw Colton Youzwa (1200) shoot lights out, and to cap it off also threw the first 400+ game in the league this season with his 403 in game 2. Chloe Fleming (902) may have gotten a little lucky to win her total as the only match she won was game 1, which was the game her opponent, Craig Enns, was absent for. After that Craig swept all his games with a solid 720 triple, but despite that the rest of his team did not fare as well against their opponents. Team Youzwa continues their climb up the standings and this should sit them solidly into the top half of the league.

Dominant Performances

Colton Youzwa – 317 (1), 403 (1), 1200 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team Youzwa ( )

Trevor’s Pick: Team Enns ( X )

Match #3 – B. Jeffers (13) vs. Cousins (18)

Team Cousins extended their winning streak to three after a close week with Team B. Jeffers. Gillian LaMonica (809) and Cindy Cousins (960) were major contributors, taking 9 out of a possible 10 points from their opponents. Cindy is looking like the anchor bowler we remember, and she will take over those anchor duties next week. Adam Williamson (917) continued his climb up the lineup this week in dominant fashion over Shannon Pruden (827). Adam has yet to shoot under his average since joining Team B. Jeffers, and will try his hand in the third position next.

Dominant Performances

Cindy Cousins – 960 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team B. Jeffers ( X )

Trevor’s Pick: Team B. Jeffers ( X )

Match #4 – Cook (10) vs. Orne (21)

An early game 1 win was about as much as Team Cook got this week as Team Orne handled them quite easily after that. A contributing factor to this may have been the 400-pin beat down David Wastle (1010) gave Dave Priestley (610) in the leadoff position, a rough night for Dave but phenomenal shooting from David. On the upside for Team Cook, their spare Chris Dewar (1017) took four points on the night from Jennifer Duncan (815) making up some of the point differential. With Linda Orne (890) and Darren Maxwell (996) both taking three points it solidified a winning night for Team Orne.

Dominant Performances

Chris Dewar (Spare) – 1017 (4)

David Wastle – 339 (1), 1010 (4)

Darren Maxwell – 996 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team Cook ( X )

Trevor’s Pick: Team Cook ( X )

Match #5 – Gelardi (23) vs. Hurd (8)

Team Gelardi showing once again why they are one of the top teams in the league. Team Hurd is on a slippery slope averaging just 8 points over the last three weeks. This win was spearheaded by a huge bounce back week from captain Dwayne Gelardi (1154), and capped off with a big 351 from Wayne Wolanski (946). Kevin Naugler (963) shot a solid week at anchor, usually good for a couple points, but up against an 1154 it was not enough for even a single point. Finally, Brett Hendrickson (934) defended his title as the superior Hendrickson brother over Robbie Hendrickson (883) with the last game being the decider.

Dominant Performances

Brett Hendrickson – 313 (1)

Wayne Wolanski – 351 (1)

Dwayne Gelardi – 384 (1), 921 (3), 1154 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team Gelardi ( )

Trevor’s Pick: Team Gelardi ( )

Match #6 – Lourenco (15) vs. King (16)

Team King squeaked a win out here, though neither team is probably too happy or too sad about this one given it was basically a split week. Team Lourenco relied heavily on Tabitha Gelardi (821) as she swept Chris Fedorchuk (705) to be the lone player on her team to win their individual total. After complimenting his consistency, anchor Ethan Buckman (867) decided to throw in a couple 180 games this week, clearly just to spite me. Those definitely are not something you wanted when the pair of Karen Armstrong (966) and Wayne King (988) both had great showings tonight, definitely a good confidence boosting week. The high game on this set came from Patrick Walker (885) who finally found a solid rhythm in a 325 game two.

Dominant Performances

Patrick Walker – 325 (1)

Karen Armstrong (966)

Wayne King – 988 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team King ( )

Trevor’s Pick: Team King ( )

Match #7 – C. Jeffers (7) vs. Rodych (24)

Team C Jeffers fell back into hold habits this week serving up another big helping of points to their opponents. Leadoff Al Bristow (894) was the highlight for the team, taking 4 out of the team’s 7 points on the night. Captain Chris Jeffers (812) looked like his old self again after starting with a 690 triple, only to be derailed by a 122 finish in game four. Team Rodych on the other hand looked solid and consistent last week having their first week with no bowler shooting under 800. Another win with dominant performances in the third and anchor positions as Amanda Devenney (974) swept and Matt Rodych (953) took four points.

Dominant Performances

Al Bristow – 894 (1)

Amanda Devenney – 974 (4)

Tyson’s Pick: Team C. Jeffers ( X )

Trevor’s Pick: Team Rodych ( )

Match #8 – Devenney (17) vs. Stevenson (14)

Another fairly evenly split match where neither team should be too upset. Team Stevenson had a good week from the center of the lineup, but failed to pick up many points from the leadoff and anchor positions. Team Devenney’s second Neil Stewart (888) would typically have thought to get some points with that score in that position however Jayden Nickerson (963) had other plans, sweeping him cleanly, but not winning any matches by more than 33 pins. The center of the lineup for Team Devenney kept things close allowing leadoff Holly Chaikowski (831) and anchor Jennifer Devenney (936) to throw a couple solid performances and give them the edge they needed for grand total.

Dominant Performances

Jayden Nickerson – 963 (4)

Jennifer Devenney – 302 (1)

Tyson’s Pick: Team Stevenson ( X )

Trevor’s Pick: Team Stevenson ( X )
