Tom Crowe led the Sugar & Spice League with a solid 684 series based on individual games of 244, 215, and 225. The pinfall gave Crowe the weekly high series honor.
Steve Zeplin scored the second high total with a 666 set in Sundowner League play. Other nice scores for the men were Steve Dickinson 659, Miles Michalec 651, Michael Conchola 276 and Tamarcus Bennett 256.
Sharon Guinn was high for the women with a nice 582 set bowled during Sugar & Spice action. She posted individual games of 211, 210, and 161 for her total.

GEICO PBA World Championship recap
I really enjoyed watching the GEICO PBA World Championship last Sunday afternoon on ESPN with the great bowling it provided in the step-ladder finals. In the first match making his first network TV appearance, Matt Sanders battled Kyle Troup to a 248 tie. In the best ball roll-off to break the tie, Sanders was unable to match Troup's opening strike and was eliminated. In a low scoring game due to lane transition and Troup missing two spares, Ryan Ciminelli defeated Troup 193-191. The third match brought out the best in Cimenelli and second seed Jason Belmonte when they both finished with a 257 game. In the best ball roll-off Belmonte left the seven pin on a mixer but Ciminelli recorded only seven pins on what he thought was a good delivery. The finals pitted the two hottest bowlers in the world, the right-handed Belmonte against the left-handed Jesper Svensson, both two-handed bowlers. Belmonte was able to pull out the game with a 238-225 win. This gave Belmonte his third major PBA title for the year, and the first bowler to win three Majors in one year. This is Belmonte's ninth major, leaving him one behind Earl Anthony and Pete Weber who have 10 majors.
