James Nudd won his first Canandaigua USBC Senior Tournament title by defeating Dick Beyea 254-222 in the championship match. Nudd went wire to wire shooting a whopping 884 handicap series in the three game qualifier, which was 86 pins better than the 2nd place qualifier Trey Talbott. Nudd got a scare in the first game of match play squeaking by friend Phil Kirkwood by five pins. Game five and the final match were not as close. In the finals, Nudd started the match and got a spare. He took the lead for good getting a four-bagger in frames 2 thru 5 while Beyea has some carry trouble. Beyea got his first double in frames 8 and 9. If he had struck out, he would have forced Nudd to mark in the 10th frame but a 3-6 leave in the 10th sealed the match for Nudd. Nudd finished the championship match with a 214 scratch game to take home the first place winners plaque and a $400 check for the win. Beyea won $210 for his 2nd place finish. The tournament had 36 entries so thanks go out to all the participants.

3.Bill Hasiotis411 (2 games)$125
4.Josh Means130 (1 game)$100

Ken Haslip won his first Canandaigua USBC Masters title with a 190-181 victory over Craig Cummings in the finals.  Haslip was the number two seed heading into the finals so he needed to win two matches to claim the title.

Match #1 saw the number 3 seed and two-time champion Bill Hasiotis defeat 4 seed Josh Means by a score of 221-130.  Hasiotis’ double in the 2nd and 3rd frame made the difference in the match as Means had trouble getting lined up on the difficult 50ft oil pattern and was unable to strike.  Hasiotis kept the ball in play and left simple spares for himself and stayed clean.   221 ended up being the highest game of the day for any bowler.  Means finishes in 4th place.

The second match featured Hasiotis vs two seed Ken Haslip. Hasiotis fell behind early missing a 10 pin and leaving the 4-6-7-9-10 “greek church”.  Haslip had no open frames during his game so it took a 3 bagger for Hasiotis to pull back even again by frame 7.  The difference in the end was Haslip’s strike in the 9th frame.  Hasiotis finished with 190 forcing Haslip to get a mark and 8 pins to win.  Haslip picks his spare and gets 8 on his final shot to pull out a 1 pin victory.   Hasiotis finishes in third place.  The final score was 191-190

The championship match was another narrow match as Haslip faced Craig Cummings the tournament leader.  Once again, Haslip stayed clean and Cummings fell behind with a missed 10 pin in the 3rd frame and a split in the 8th.  Cummings was able to close the gap with a double.  Haslip finished the match 1st with his first open frame in the finals to shoot 190.  Cummings needed the first 2 strikes in the 10th to come from behind and win.  He gets the first strike but was unable to get the 2nd to finish with 181.  

Ken Haslip was crowned the 2018-19 Canandaigua USBC Masters Champion.  He took home $375 for the win and a championship plaque which will be awarded at the Canandaigua USBC Annual Meeting on Wednesday May 15 at the Elks Club in Canandaigua. Craig Cummings won $ 200 for his second place finish.
