Haulie Storan playing in his first Rocks Jewellers event of the season set a scorching pace opening up with a 279, shooting 770 over the first 3 and posting an 1183 total (236 Avg) which was just enough to maintain the lead in the Scratch section over Barry Foley (1183 total as well) on the high last game. Paolo DiTofano continued his good form from Round 3 with a 1210 incl.handicap (218 Avg) to top the standings in the handicap section.
Haulie continued his good form in the 1st Scratch semi-final starting with a 4 bagger and was never in any real trouble after Tom Byrne failed to convert a split in the 7th frame, he moved into the final with a 224 to 199 win. Fran Puzzuoli took command from the start of the 2nd semi-final and ran out a comfortable winner 246 to Barry Foley’s 197. In the Final, Haulie just couldn’t find his strike shot, the match was one sided with Fran in total command finishing off with 10 strikes in a row for a 280 to 177 victory and his first win of the season.
Paolo took care of business closing out strongly in the 1st Handicap semi-final against Gavin Fox who was also playing his first event of the season taking the match by 231 to 208. New to the Rocks Jewellers singles this season Ed Kupsys played a very tight game to overcome John Wilson in the 2nd Semi Final by 210 to John’s 176 and then went on to the Final where he upped his performance to take his first win of the season by 230 to Paolo’s 191.
Congratulations to the winners Fran Puzzuoli (Scratch Division) & Ed Kupsys (Handicap Division) and all the finalists.
