Bill Hasiotis wins the 2015-16 Canandaigua USBC Masters Tournament
November 8, 2015
Roseland Bowl, Canandaigua, NY

Pictured here left to right is runner up Jerry Brunette Jr, Champion Bill Hasiotis, and Tournament Director Jon Barkley


1.Bill Hasiotis239 (1 game)$450
  2.Jerry Brunette Jr708 (3 games)$250
3.William Stoddard167 (1 game)$200
  4.Joshua Means211 (1 game)$150

Bill Hasiotis wins his 1st Canandaigua USBC Masters title with a 239-189 victory over Jerry Brunette Jr. in the finals.  The victory was the Greece NY native’s first victory in a Masters event for either Canandaigua or Rochester as a new rule allowed members of the Rochester USBC to bowl for the first time.

Hasiotis won from the tournament leader’s position which he did not take over until the 8th and final game of match play.  He started match play in the 7th position but climbed the standings steadily averaging 239 over the 8 games and posting a 6-2 match play record which was best of the 8 bowlers.

The first match of the day saw Jerry Brunette Jr defeat Josh Means by a score of 281-211.  Brunette poured on the heat early with 10 consecutive strikes to not give Means a chance in the match.  Means had trouble finding the strike line.  The lefty from Rochester’s bid for 300 came to an end when he left the 4-6-7-8-10 greek church on his 11th shot..  Means ends up in 4th place.

Brunette’s next match was against William Stoddard from Henrietta.  This match was a struggle in the first half of the game where each bowler had a open frame and Brunette had a 10 pin lead after 5 frames.  Stoddard’s undoing came in the 6th and 7th fram with back to back splits that he was unable to convert.  Brunette finished with the final 6 strikes to finish with a 238-167 victory to move on to the finals against Hasiotis.  Stoddard finishes in 3rd place.

The title match between Hasiotis and Brunette saw a fast start by both bowlers.  A third frame stone 8 pin by Brunette stopped him from matching Hasiotis in the first four frames.    Hasiotis was stopped by a 4 pin in the 6th frame to end his run of strikes.  The key shot was Brunette leaving a 4-6-7 split in the sixth frame and Brunette was unable to recover.  Hasiotis stayed clean to finish the match and gain the victory.  Hasiotis wins 239-189 to win the title.  Hasiotis picked up a check for $450 for the victory and a champions plaque.

Hasiotis about his title:  “My strategy was to get out to a quick start and put pressure on Jerry immediately.  I knew I needed a big game to beat him as he was bowling well.  I played a pretty tight line as too much hook for me got me in trouble”.
