Team Dexter pro Dom Barrett took home the 2017 Brunswick Euro Challenge championship trophy in a dramatic victory in Munich, Germany on March 26th.

The Dream-Bowl Palace lanes were the site of a contentious final round, which began with Dom trailing five pins behind his competitor, Jojoe Yannaphon of Thailand. Dom, a native of Colchester in Essex county, England, came from behind to win following his opponent’s 8-10 split, 237-221.

The tournament marked Dom’s first win in three years, since his 2014 Qatar title. It was made all the better on Sunday with wife Cassie there to cheer him on and celebrate his victory. The Euro Challenge is Dom’s 13th European title and fifth PBA title.

The Brunswick Euro Challenge was the first event on this year’s PBA International-World Bowling Tour.

Blanchard Takes Top Honors at PBA Xtra Frame Reality Check Classic

Congratulations to Team Dexter Pro Josh Blanchard who won the PBA Xtra Frame Reality Check Classic on Sunday, March 19. This marks the third career title for the 29 year old, following his 2015 win at the PBA Xtra Frame Maine Shootout.

Josh swept all three of Sunday’s stepladder matches at Sawgrass Lanes in Tamarac, Florida by a sizeable margin, culminating with his 232-204 victory over AJ Johnson of Oswego, Illinois. The tournament, postponed due to Hurricane Matthew, was originally scheduled to take place in October 2016.
