Oliva and Michalowski claimed the top seed for match play with a 1,966 qualifying set, and survived a closely-fought final match with Michalowski striking out in the tenth frame to secure the win. This marked the fourth career MAST title for both gentlemen, and the second this season for Oliva following his victory at Leisure Lanes in Monroe in December.

MAST also paid one additional cash spot with $154 for 9th (Kyle Nielsen & Tony Thaden – 1,821). Oliva and Michalowski also claimed $260 from the Bet To Win pot.

Seventy-six bowlers competed on Sport Bowl’s house pattern. The cut after eight games of qualifying was 1,830. Mike Hoffman was the high individual qualifier at 1,009, he receives twenty-five bonus points in the M & J Truck and Auto Points Race. Two bowlers posted honor counts, 300 games by Gail Myers and Donovan Thomas in the second games of their respective qualifying sets.
