Win North Jersey Doubles Scholarship
Travel Tournament
By Vince Albrecht
LODI, NJ – The North Jersey Scholarship Travel Tournament [NJSTT]
drew twenty-four bowlers [12 entries] to its second Doubles event, con-
ducted at Lodi Lanes. There was some confusion as to who the winners
were, but when the smoke cleared, Wayne Valley junior Marissa
Cosentini and Clifton senior Johann Gamo emerged as victors by five
pins over Clarkstown South sophomore Logan Priesel and Park Ridge
sophomore Joseph Mahoney. The key to the win was not only
Cosentini’s strong 235 finish, but Gamo’s spare-conversion ability in
game three; it’s rare that a bowler as talented as Johann rolls a game
without a strike, but he managed eight spares, including the key tenth
frame mark plus nine pins which gave him a 171; so while his partner
Marissa had a turkey and more, Johann settled for a pair of chickens [for
those not in the know, a chicken is three spares in a row], good enough
to win.
