WASHINGTON — The all-events score posted by Brad Moore on the first weekend of the inaugural Peoria River City Association's city bowling tournament held up on the final weekend of competition at Plaza Lanes.
But there were a couple of late changes on Sunday in the final two squads.
Moore totaled 2,245 for his nine games, averaging a shade below 250. He rolled sets of 732 in doubles, 733 in singles and 780 in team to finish 49 pins ahead of runner-up Tommy Barnwell (2,196).
It was the second city title for Moore, who won a trios title a couple of years ago. And it was almost his second all-events title.
"I would have won a couple of years ago, but my dad didn't understand that he had to pay extra for me to enter," he said. "So when I finished bowling, I told (tournament director) Andy Jason that I thought I beat the all-events score. But he told me I wasn't entered."
Barnwell did win the Division A singles title with 749, 10 pins better than Ryan Driskill (739). Moore was third with 733.
Josh Mann rolled the only 300 of the tournament on Sunday on his way to winning the Division B singles title with a handicap total of 837.
He opened with a 268, came back with his second career trey and closed with a 191.
"I threw the back nine strikes in the first game, bowled the 300, and had the first strike in the third game," Mann said. "So I had 22 strikes in a row.
"But in that last game, I was kind of nervous, and kind of lost it. And I couldn't carry."
It was the second big set with the Storm Crux that Mann took out of a two-year retirement a few days earlier. He rolled a career-high 780 at Mt. Hawley Bowl with it on Thursday.
Also on Sunday, Johntay Jones and Wes Newell successfully defended their title in Division B doubles with a 1,544. Newell led the way with a handicap 817 and Jones added a 727.
The Division A doubles score of 1,522 held up for brothers Mike and Bob Baker, who finished 24 pins ahead of Bobby Ogle and Garrett Lawson.
Moore and Andre Campos teamed up to win Division A handicap doubles with a 1,527.
Campos was the Division B scratch (2,043) and handicap (2,340) winner in all events, and won Division B scratch doubles with his dad, Johnny, with 1,349.
There were no changes in the Division A team, won by the Plaza #2 team of Dillard Clark, Dan Lee, Ross Curley and Driskill. They totaled 2,963, 165 pins better than We Found A Lefty.
Table Flippin Ten Pin (Josh Wensel, Kevin Reardon, Ron Haskovec, Vinny Napolitano) won Division B team with 2,900, while Thrown Together (Randy Rhodes, James Thomas, Joe Solick, Hank Broeren) were the Division C team champs with 2,840.
