Lazzell rolls a 300, Oakes captures tournament title

Danny Lazzell throws his first-ever 300 game, and Donny Cheeseman rolls back to back 280 games and a 782 series, in the Friday Night Mixed League.

The third stop of the Fox Auto World Hi/Low Tourney was held recently at the Lincoln Lanes Annex, and Doug Oakes captured the title.

Starting off with the low side of the tourney, Steven Jones defeated Linda Engle, 205 to 182.. Jones did not last much longer as he lost the second match to Rick Zaayer 210 to 146. Zaayer then faced second seed Robin Turner. Turner won that match 207 to 187 to meet top-seeded Jesse Alvarez. Turner was the victor, 189 to 187, to advance to the championship against the high side.

Now to the High Side results. Steve Romero defeated Byron Miller in the first game 217 to 212. Romero lost the second match to Rich McFarland 215 to 191. McFarland defeated Jason Turner in the third game 258 to 225 to advance to the high side finals against Doug Oakes. Oakes won that match 237 to 214 to advance to the final championship game against the low side winner, Turner. Oakes was the victor, 204-182, claiming his very first title.

Next stop for the tourney will be Jan. 19th at Bulan’s Bowl.
