    Brunswick Team England #2

    Bowling Alley: The Bowl in Bromborough, England

    Lee Chatfield.jpg Stuart Williams.jpg Stuart Williams defeated Lee Chatfield (right) two-games-to-none in the best-of-three games finals to win the PTBC Legends Challenge, the second event of the Brunswick Team England rankings, at The Bowl in Bromborough, England. Williams, the 11th seed after qualifying, rolled a big score in the first match, 242-182, and sealed the victory with a 216-182 in the second.

    Fiona_Banks_5612.jpg Nick_Froggatt_4731.jpg As the ranking points were given based on the standings after the 7-game prelims, men's and women's qualifying leaders Nick Froggatt and Fiona Banks received the maximum ranking points. However as Williams is not a member of the British Tenpin Bowling Association and played under membership of the Netherlands he is not eligible to receive ranking points at all.

    Dominic_Barrett_4058.jpg Froggatt fell to No. 32 seed Matt Giles in the first match play round of 32, 2-1. Mike Quarry, seeded 31st, sidelined No. 2 seed and reigning ranking champion Dominic Barrett, 2-1, in the same round. Both winners used the momentum and advanced to the Round of 8, in which Gilles fell victim to Mark Smith (2-1), while Quarry was swept by Chatfield.


    Donna_Adams_4868.jpg Williams eliminated the last remaining woman in the Round of 8, two-time defending BTE ranking champion Donna Adams, 2-1. The eventual winner trailed by one after the first game, but finished with back-to-back victories, 279-168, 236-229, to advance.

    Both Williams (vs. Smith) and Chatfield (vs. Jon Zadel) were down 0-1 in the semifinals but rebounded for a 2-1 win with back-to-back victories to advance to the title match.
