Steve Beck   vs   Stephen Habel             Lanes 5&6          7 PM

Beck starts the match with a split for an open – then goes high and trips the 9 out for a strike, adds on another for a double, then leaves back to back to back 10 pins and spares them all, he goes light and leaves the 4 pin and spares, then leaves the bucket and spares, in the 9th he leaves the 6-10 and covers it then double and 9 to finish with 199.  Habel starts with a light mixer for a strike, then strikes two more times, comes in light and leaves a 7 pin and spares, strike, then comes in high but gets a sweeper to take out the 4 for a strike, then sticks a 10 pin and misses it, then strikes in the 9th, 10th and 11th leaving the greek churck in the 12th for 241 and a 42 pin lead.    Game 2 Habel throws a 4 bagger, 2 pin spare, double, 3-6-10 and spares double and 5 wash out for a spare for another 241 and 482 after 2.  Beck starts game 2 with 3 strikes, gets a light mixer for another, 3 more solid shots to make 7 in a row, another light strike for 8 in a row, and other strike in the 9th and then leaves a 10 pin in the 10th and strikes for 279 and 478 after 2 – down 4 pins.   Game 3 Beck starts on the left lane and leaves the 10 and spares, Habel starts on the right lane and leaves a 10 and spares, then almost leaves another but a messenger takes out the 10 for a strike, Beck gets a light mixer and strkes, Habel rocks 2 strikes on his next turn to make a turkey,  Beck throws two solid strikes for a 4 bagger,  Habel strikes on the right and then comes in light for a 7 pin and spares, Beck comes in tight in the 6th for a 4 pin spare then strikes,  Habel almost leaves the 10 pin but a messenger takes it out for a strike, then he taps the 10 out late for a pair of strikes in the 7th and 8th.  Beck carries two really light strikes in the 8th and 9th for a turkey and the match is just pins apart,  Habel then throws on the right lane and leaves the 2-4-10 split and makes it! Then he strikes in the 10th but leaves a 4 pin in the 11th and covers it for 236 and a nice 718 series.   Beck needs to mark in the 10th to win and gets a solid strike for the win, he tacks on 2 more strikes  and ends the match with a 269 – 747 finish to knock Habel out of the tournament.  Beck will face the winner of the Sheffert Lanser match at 8 pm.  Great match guys!  I have to say I liked the outcome – but had it gone the other way – you would have to tip your cap to Stephen because he bowled really well – Congrats on a great tournament Stephen!

Steve Beck  747 vs  Stephen Habel  718

Jason Lanser  vs   Steve Beck     Lanes  5&6              8 pm

Both bowlers bowled really well the first match – Beck rolled a 747 -but Lanser rolled a 300 and a 792 series!  Now to see who would survive this match and make it once step closer to bowling the finals of the Big 10 Championship.  Lanser starts this match with a strike, back to back 10 pin spares, strike, light mixer for a strike, 2-4-10 split and gets 1 for an open, turkey, 10 pin spare and strike for 211.  Beck starts with a turkey, 4 pin spare, 3-6-10 spare, strike, then goes high and trips out the 4-9 for a strike, then leaves the 9 pin and spares, strike and 6-7-10 split and gets 2 for 223 and a 12 pin lead.  Game 2 Beck starts with a turkey, covers the bucket, light mixer, light mixer tripping the 4 forward, 6- 10 spare, 2 pin spare, strikes out in the 9th and 10th for 244 and 467 after 2.  Lanser goes 3-6 spare, strike, goes in light and leaves an 8 pin and spares, then rolls a 5 bagger, comes in light and leaves the 4-8 and spares then strikes out for 248 – 659 and down 8 pins.  Lanser starts game 3 with a strike, Beck throws a pair of strikes, the second a light mixer, Lanser leaves the 2-8-10 split for an open and then strikes on the left lane, Beck leaves the 10 pin and spares, then leaves the bucket and gets only 2 for an open, Lanser then leaves the 2-8 and spares and then leaves the 10 pin and spares,  Beck comes back with a strike after the open and then goes high and leaves the 10 pin and covers it.  Lanser’s next turn he leaves the big 4 split and gets 2 and then covers the 10 pin,  Beck strikes on the right and comes in light again on the left lane leaving the 5 pin on  light mixer and spares, Lanser’s next turn he throws a pair strikes with pins flying off the deck.  Beck is in the lead and needs to stay clean to win, he gets up on his good lane the right lanes and does not throw it well as it comes off his hand quick and leaves a wash out, he tries to pick it up – but gets just 1, he then strikes in the 10th and leaves a 4 pin and spares for 178 and 645.  Lanser must strike to win and throws it flush in the pocket for a strike, needing good count – he goes brooklyn for a strike and then finishes it off with one more strike for 201 and a 660 series.  Lanser makes the key shot to knock Beck out of the tournament.  Beck has two open frames the last game – the key one in the 9th and finishes in a tie for 7th and 8 th place with Shawn Timmerman – who lost to Kurt Schmidt.  Great bowling by Lanser making the key shot to put the match away!

2016 Week 6 Matches

2016 Week 4 Greatest Matches – Hell Week

Week 4 is Hell Week for the Budweiser Big 10.  That means you have to win out the night to survive and move on to week 5.  Your reward is if you survive you cash.   When we get done tonight there will be 4 bowlers in the winners bracket and 8 in the Losers bracket.

There were only a few to really report on – but I did want to congratulate Rick Jacobs on starting the first shift with a 300 game and Tyler Kohl for rolling one for the lefties in Game 2 on the first shift – both went on to win their first matches.

Riley Smith  vs  Dennis Pergande        7 pm  – Lanes 7&8

Great match guys

Riley Smith  710 vs Dennis Pergande  722

Luke Althaus  vs  Nate Oertel               6 pm  – Lanes 3&4

This was a tight match all night.  Althaus starts game 1 with a turkey, then a double in the 8th and 9th all while staying clean and rolling a 227.  Oertel goes strike spare, 5 bagger, 3-6-10 for an open, strike spare strike for 225 and down 2.  Game 2 Althaus covers the 10 to start the game, strike – big split for an open, 5 bagger, leaves a solid 8 and covers it, strikes then spares for 227.  Oertel covers the 10, then the 4 then the 1-2-4-6-10 washout, picks up the bucket, and another 10 pin, finishes with a 6 bagger for 239 and a 10 pin lead. Game 3 Althaus starts with a 5 bagger, Oertel goes double, pair of 10 pin spares and a strike.  Althaus has a 20 pin lead… but then he opens with a 7-10 split in the 6th and then in the 7th misses a 7 pin.  Oertel doesn’t take advantage of this opening, he opens in both frames by not covering the 3-6-10 again, and then missing the 4-7, both spare in the 8th covering single pins, both strike in the 9th.  Oertel leaves a 10 pin and covers it in the 10th, Althaus strikes and wins the match.  227-227-224 for 678 – Oertel’s 225-239-182 for 646 comes up short – and Althaus is our first come from behind winner! It’s week 1 so everyone will be back next week!  Good luck to both!

Luke Althaus  678 vs Nate Oertel  646

Jeff Pregler   vs   Matt Loney                   6 pm  – Lanes 5&6
