This past Sunday, November 19th, 4th Street Lanes in Greenville hosted a Scotch Doubles 9 pin no tap bowling tournament. Under the rules of scotch doubles, teams consist of two players who alternate shots throughout the game. Nine pin no tap, indicates if you knock down 9 pins on the first ball (i.e., leave one standing) count it as a strike.

Twenty-eight bowlers (14 teams) signed up to play in this very exciting bowling event. The tournament consisted of bowling four games in a row. In order for all skill levels of bowlers to have a chance to compete, this tournament is handicapped giving pins to teams with higher handicaps. After completion of four games the top five teams compete in a TV style “Roll Off”. This means, 5th place plays 4th place in one game, winner plays the 3rd place team, winner of that game plays the 2nd place team, and the winner of that game plays the 1st place team for the Championship. Below are the results from Sunday’s big event at 4th Street Lanes:

After 4 games of play:
5th place: Scott Riggins & Doug Jones – 991 pins
4th place: Ky & Tev Stoecklin – 1002 pins
3rd place: Tyler & Jordyn Young – 1019 pins
2nd place: Brandi & Ty Sexton – 1032 pins
1st place: John Helige & John Karnowski – 1037 pins
