WATERLOO - The city bowling tournament is never over until the top scratch bowlers in town have their say, and Shannon Buchan spoke loudly on the final day of competition Friday.

Sparked by a monster 802 series in the Greater Cedar Valley USBC Tournament doubles event, Buchan took over the all-events lead with a total of 2,270, and he also helped lift the Fran's Pro Shop Masters League team to a second straight open scratch title.

The Fran's team of Buchan, Rich Eighme, Jason Peterson, Dan Schuler and John Brinker shot 3,549 scratch on Thursday to take the team scratch title, while finishing second the Annihilators in the open handicapped standings.

Buchan and Peterson's 1,506 scratch earned them a third-place finish in the doubles competition.

Other big men's scores Friday included Morgan Tyler's 289 game in doubles and Blake Delagardelle's 285 in the team event.

Barb Einfelt shook up the women's standings with a big 714 scratch series (753 handicap) in singles, earning her second place in singles behind her Evansdale beighbor, Cherie Derbyshire. Einfelt took over fourth place in all-events.

The other top slots on the leader board remained unchanged. Final standings will be posted at area bowling centers this week.
