Rocks Jewellers Singles 2019/20 – Event 2 Results

A clash of dates with the Adult Triple Crown in Scotland and the Malta Senior Open meant reduced numbers to 32 for the 2nd Event of the season.

Jason Byrnes led the Scratch section with 1158 (231 Avg) and was joined by Alan Bride, Fran Puzzuoli and Alan McDonnell for the semi-finals. Semi-final 1 with Jason vs Alan McDonnell was tight throughout with both players having only 1 double and 2 splits each, one of which Jason converted that proved to be the difference sending him through to the final by 10pins on a 192 to Alan’s 182. In semi-final 2 Alan Bride opened with the first 8 strikes to take the match by 279 to Fran’s 202. The Final, was a repeat of the Event 1 final, Alan couldn’t maintain his semi-final form opening twice in the first 5 frames while Jason threw 8 strikes in the game to comfortably take the win by 251 to 210.

Heading up the Handicap section with 1251 (incl. Hcp) was Zbigniew Grzesiak aka “Pawlo”, closely followed by Kealan O’Connor, Taylor Williams and Ann Cullen. “Pawlo” took a low scoring first semi-final against Ann by 209 (incl. Hcp) to 194. In the second semi-final Taylor came back from an early open frame, stringing 6 strikes together to move on to the final by 268 (incl. Hcp) to Kealan’s 204. Opening the 9th and 10th frames was a case of one too many openers for Taylor as he went down to “Pawlo” in an otherwise tight final match by 205 to 195.

Congratulations to the winners Jason Byrnes (Scratch Division) and Zbigniew Grzesiak aka “Pawlo” (Handicap Division) and all the finalists.

Rocks Jewellers Singles 2019/20 – Event 1 Results

Round 1 – Results 

It was great to see 42 bowlers turn out for the 1st Event of the season in Leisureplex Stillorgan.  What was even more encouraging was that 8 new players signed up on the morning and with another 8 Seniors away representing Ireland in the World Senior Championships in Las Vegas, the indications are that the 10th Anniversary season of the Rocks Jewellers Singles will prove to be the most successful yet.

Not only did we have the great turnout, we had scoring to match, with 15 bowlers bowling 200+ averages, 2 of whom breaking the 1200 series mark, which also bodes well as throughout the previous 2018/19 season (9 Events) there were only 2 1200+ series.

Alan Bride topped the Scratch section with 1236 (247 Avg) followed by Jason Byrnes on 1218 (243 Avg). They were joined by Alan McDonnell and Amanda Larkin in the semi-finals which proved to be comfortable wins for Alan, who shot 258 to Amanda’s 210 and Jason, who had a 224 to Alan’s 163. In a much tighter final match Alan struck out in the 10th frame to close out Jason by 237 to 216.

Sean Dempsey and Kealan O’Connor playing in their first Rocks Jewellers event led the way in the Handicap section with Sean on 1209 (incl. Hcp) and Kealan on 1200 (incl Hcp). These were joined by John Wilson and Paul Stott, both seasoned senior bowlers for the semi-finals. In the first semi-final there was nothing to separate the players with Sean closing out well to move in the final by a narrow 2 pin margin winning with 216 to Paul’s 214 and Kealan took care of business joining him in the Final by 251 to John’s 198. Kealan’s good form continued into the final to take his first win in his first Rocks Jewellers event by 232 to Sean’s 195.

Congratulations to the winners Alan Bride (Scratch Division) and Kealan O’Connor (Handicap Division) and all the finalists.

Pat Holmes wins Silver & Bronze medals at the European Senior Bowling Championships in Bologna, Italy

Having narrowly missed out on medals in the Singles and Doubles events, Pat’s overall combined performance in the All Events (Singles, Doubles & Trios) gave her a Bronze Medal place on the podium in the 28th European Senior Bowling Championships (ESBC) in Bologna, Italy.  

Pat’s All Events placing also gave her entry into the Masters Final where today, the top 6 players would go head to head to determine the overall ESBC champions. In a tough 5 game format where the lowest scoring bowler is eliminated after every game, Pat was up to the challenge and fought her way right through to the Final match and came home with the prestigious Silver European Tenpin Bowling Federation (ETBF) medal. Well done Pat …..
