“The Doctor” aka Frank Ferrese defeated Craig Ferrese in the finals to win his unprecedented 7th Pearl Harbor Tournament Championship in front of an overflow crowd at the HHSOI on Friday evening. Frank defeated Craig, Glenn and Erin to advance through the winners bracket unscathed. Craig, in a valiant effort to win his first Pearl Harbor, came tantalizingly close to tasting victory by winning 5 straight games after falling to Frank early. He beat The Doctor 21-10 in the first game of the final. In the winner take all second game the score was tied 13-13 before Frank scored the final 8 points of the game to seal the title at 4:17 AM. Erin “The Virgin” Doyle finished 3rd. Defending Champ The Commish finished 4th. Congratulations to THE DOCTOR.
Frank “The Doctor” Ferrese – Pearl Harbor 25 Champion
The tournament entertainment was the best it has ever been in league history featuring a beer soaked karaoke version of “It’s Raining Men” that was performed by The Virgin and Pat “Frosty the Snowman, formerly known as the Ice Man” Wells for a packed house upstairs at Lodge President Cinalli’s Work Holiday Party. Despite information to the contrary from Johnny Quoits, Peaches was on hand to officiate the proceedings.
