Snafu won by 21 pins in the eight-team roll-off. Webb’s teammates were Reggie Dubois, Marc Frechette, Scott Allaire and Jamie Bernier.

Team USA came close to repeating as Lahey champs, but its chances were hampered by an injury to captain Jil Dionne. Dan Cailler, Jim Morin, Ralph Therrien and Mike Peaco joined Dionne on the team.

Chicken of Maine, also missing its captain Gerry Allaire to injury, captured third place. Active team members were Gary Goldberg, Dan Briggs, Brian Albert, Jim Chaplin and Ernie Ashton.

A total of 170 bowlers competed in this year’s event to benefit the Lahey Foundation. The tournament and foundation were established in memory of Thomas F.
