After a seven game round robin tournament, Richard Broad & Doug Bradley were locked in a 3-way tie for first place in Men’s Pairs at the US Championship with Carl Landgren & Steve Nelson from the Central Division and Tony Baer & Bill Brault of Southwest Stripes.
The Southwest Stripes team led with plus points, so Richard & Doug played the Central Division team first. They won that game and advanced to the final playoff. With the average pairs game of 21 ends lasting over three hours, Doug & Richard had bowled over 24 hours to get to this final match.
Richard & Doug got out to an early lead, but Tony Baer and Bill Brault fought back and finally prevailed.
Congratulations to all our Northwest team bowlers. You represented us well!
