Brian Coenelious and John Schoen were one and two during the four-game December edition of the Reynolds Nine Pin No Tap Handicap Tournament, but when the final ball was thrown, it was Schoen who prevailed 1,112-1,088. Rich Tribley and Shawn Hoover tied for 3rd with 1,086 while Missy Furmanek finished 5th with 1,061.

Cornelious began the tournament by shooting a 300 and with his one pin handicap took the lead with 301. Schoen shot 252 but his 31 pin-per-game handicap gave him 283 and 2nd place. Tribley was 3rd with 275 (255+20) while Janette Boyd was 4th with 273 (232+41). Leroy Hagan was 5th with 271 (245+26).

Schoen’s 265 2nd game gave him the lead with 579. Cornelious shot 252 and was 2nd with 554. Tribley managed a 250 to remain 3rd with 545. Boyd dropped to 208 but remained 4th with 522.

However, Bob Leventry made a move. After a first game of 207, he shot a 278 and moved from 20th to 5th. Furmanek also made her move. In 19th place after one with a 224, she also shot a 278 and was 6th with 515.
