The 62-year-old right-hander (photo at right) averaged 230 for his seven games in the event to win the $310 top prize.

In the finals, Cole's 227 was good enough to defeat Chris Buonaugurio (212), Mike Feola (201) and Don Perrault (169). To reach the title match, Cole posted games of 225 and 216 following his 942 four-game total in the qualifying round.

In November, Cole won the Genesee Region USBC Senior Masters at Perry Bowling Center.

Two Batavia bowlers cashed as well with Paul Spiotta (923 in the qualifying round) and Bill Neubert (891) each earning $70 after exiting in the first eliminator round.

The next tournament is at 1 p.m. March 20 at Bowl-A-Roll Lanes on Jefferson Road in Rochester.


Neubert took top honors in the Super Bowl handicap tournament at Mancuso Bowling Center on Feb. 13, outlasting 46 others.

The right-hander posted a 261 game in the title match to claim the $450 first prize. His first two games in the head-to-head match play were 211 and 235.

Other local cashers were Nick Johnson of Byron and Rick Underhill of Batavia.
