Bill Hasiotis successfully defended his Canandaigua USBC Masters title with a 236-144 victory over Scott Dingman in the finals. The victory was the Greece NY native’s 2nd victory in as many tries in this event.
Hasiotis won from the tournament leader’s position after finishing 5th in qualifying. He took over the #1 spot in the very first game of match play with a 225 game and only lost the top spot 1 time over the 8 games and posted a 6-2 match play record which was best of the 8 bowlers. He posted a tournament best game of 267 in game 6 and did not look back after that.
The first match of the step ladder finals saw third seed Bill Stoddard from Henrietta take on four seed Brian Wright from Farmington. This match was a close in the first half of the game as each player was striking and keeping their ball close to the pocket with Stoddard having a small lead into the 6th frame but a late double by Wright in the 7th and 8th frame sunk Stoddard’s chances as he struggled at the end of the game. Wright was able to shutout Stoddard in the 10th frame and wins by a score of 224-190. Stoddard ends up in 4th place.
Wright’s next match was against two seed Scott Dingman from West Henrietta. This match was the closest match of the three as each player started slowly and then both players started stringing the strikes. The turning point of the match was an error by Wright leaving a 1-2-4-10 washout which he was not able to convert. Dingman took full advantage of the mistake by doubling to take the lead for good. Dingman finishes with a 215-197 victory to move on to the finals against Hasiotis. Wright finishes in 3rd place.
The title match was a dominating performance by Hasiotis as he struck on his first six shots while Dingman struggled to find his line leaving difficult spares. Hasiotis’ lead was 80 pins when he broke off his perfect game opportunity. Each bowler finished out their game with Hasiotis winning 236-144 to win the title. Hasiotis picked up a check for $425 for the victory and a champions plaque.
Hasiotis about his title: “My game plan for the finals was to strike early and put pressure on Dingman, which I was able to do. I threw the ball well both days. I was very accurate, hitting my mark consistently. I only Missed 2 spares in qualifying and 2 in match play”. When asked about his success in this tournament the past 2 years, Hasiotis replied “ I would contribute my success over the past 18 months to several changes and improvements I have made to my game. I made some pitch changes, started using a thumb mold for a more consistent feel between balls, drilled a few more balls to fill in holes in my arsenal, got better at spares and found a flaw in my timing which helped me to execute and make better adjustments. From all of this my confidence has improved and I have learned to manage my game under pressure.
