For the third straight week, there has been a different bowler to claim the $100.00 first place prize in the weekly Match-Play championship, Sept. 18 at the Russell Family Bowling Center in Woodsfield.

Longwell had to defeat last week’s Match Play winner Dave Johnson in the finals to capture the weekly match play event that was sponsored by Monroe Carpet and Flooring. Johnson had to defeat Dave Hayes in the semi-final, while Longwell had to beat Scott Tomlin to reach the championship round.

The high-qualifier was Nick Morris who rolled a 2-game total of 497.

Johnson Wins Second Match Play Event

Dave Johnson became the first two time winner of the 2019-2020 head to head match game season at Russell Family Bowling Center in Woodsfield, Ohio. Johnson narrowly defeated Pittsburgh bowler Bernie Nestler with a score of 227 to Nestler’s 220. Joihnson was also the high qualifier for the night with a 2 game score of 505. Johnson barley made it out of the first round against a tough bowling Ed Binni as Binni rolled a 221 to Johnson’s 224. Johnson would then defeat Ron Oneil to make it to the final round. Nestler defeated Coleman Tomlin in a close first match and then defeated Lance Lafollette to make his way into the final match. Doan Ford of Morristown, Ohio was the sponsor for the tournament.
