Pace Stan Niemiec Youth Travel
By Vince Albrecht
HACKENSACK, NJ - The Stan Niemiec youth travelers were sizzling
in Hackensack and grabbing center stage was a pair of eighth-graders.
Thirteen-year-old Tom Chamberlain drilled the maples with 255-220209-684, and with the aid of DePaul senior Joe Malyack 220-215-627,
carried the Holiday II squad to a sweep of the seven points available
against the vacancy. Fourteen-year-old Steve Kropilak was all smiles,
thrilled at the comfort and ease with which he delivered his new ball,
confidently blazing away posting a stellar round of 220-192-269-681. In
his closing game, Steve left a 10-pin after stringing eight strikes and
without losing focus, finished the frame with the spare and ended his
game clean, collecting a strike/spare in the tenth. Teammate Nick
Ferrante caught fire in game three as well, with 252 as Lodi completed
a come-from-behind three-point gain, 1104-956 to grab the wood, 28402824 from North Arlington which won the first two games.
Adding to North Arlingtons potent arsenal, Lyndhurst senior Jordan
Lopez made his first appearance noteworthy by effectively employing
his two-handed delivery in racking up 192-221-226-639. Anchor Tyler
Keefe was similarly adept at chasing the pins off the deck, tallying 199211-221-631.
James Kane blasted 191-202-259-652 and Jonmikal Sepero 211-244 to
carry Bowler City I past Boonton. Montville sophomore Erik
Kattermann lifted his average to 201 with 220-203-222-645 while older
sibling Karl had a 206, Sean McGuire 189 and Matt Chang 185. Despite
Ryan McGuire scoring 209-201-219-629, brother Alex 200-222-616,
Frank Magyar 205-200 and Lilly Sigona 194, Holiday I was shut out by
a torrid Fair Lawn team. Taking charge for the victors was yet another
eighth-grader, thirteen-year-old Nick Greco who excelled with 265-636
with ample support from Fair Lawn freshman Tyler Nappi 208-207-602
and Matt Myers 204. BC III took two of three from Montvale.

By Bill Vint - PBA
CHICAGO The Xtra Frame Detroit Open at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Michigan,
December 11-13, has been added to the Professional Bowlers Associations 2015 schedule,
expanding next years PBA calendar to 30 tournaments that will award PBA Tour titles.

video streaming on Xtra Frame.
Overall, the 2015 PBA Tour schedule includes three major championships (United States
Bowling Congress Masters, 50th anniversary Barbasol PBA Tournament of Champions and
PBA World Championship), nine PBA International-World Bowling Tour events, a total of
21 domestic Tour events (including three doubles tournaments), PBA League competition,

AMF, Oklahomas Grand Casino Resort King of the Swing, and World Bowling Tour
Mens and Womens Finals. The PBA Tour will visit 22 different cities and eight different
countries in 2015.
The PBA also announced it has re-scheduled the Xtra Frame Pensacola South Open at
