The annual Yatesville bocce league clambake and tournament was held last Sunday. Before the event began a moment of silence and remembrance was taken in honor of Fosco Santi who we lost this year. This season was held in memory of the legendary bocce player.
The tournament was won by the team of Doc Campanella, Pat Chiumento, Erald Biondi and Atty. Joe Coviello. Finishing second was the team of Charlie Adonizio, Jon Campanella, Ed Reid and “Mr. Consistent”, Ralph Campanella. The third place team was Tony Reino, Paul Minichelli, Pat Williams and Pete Anelli.
As is our tradition the league would like to thank Borough of Yatesville for use of the park and the Sunday Dispatch for offering coverage of the league to the Greater Pittston area. We would also like to acknowledge our team sponsors: JetSurge Power Cleaning, Blandina Apartments, Atlas Realty, the Dyller Law Firm, Robert’s Repairs, Bassler Equipment, Old Forge Chiropractic, KWIK ’N EZ Mart and our league champions Cuz’s Susquehanna Bar & Grill.
It was widely acknowledged that the most consistent player all season was Ralph Campanella and our two most improved players were Dr. Steve Mariani and Charlie Adonizio.
Without the tireless work of Guy DePascale Jr., Paul Santarelli, Gene Cardoni, Henry Rodeghiero, Joe Zambetti and Guy DePascale Sr. the courts would not be in the super condition they are every week as we begin play.
A special thanks to Guy DePascale Sr., our league scheduler and statistician and Phil Bosha, our correspondent with the Sunday Dispatch.
