Matt Buehrer started his night with his first career 300 in
game one. He’s been close
oh so many times this season, it was good to see him finally cash in. The glory faded a bit in game two with a 191 score but he got
his “A” game together in game three with a 265.
His 756 series for the night was second high in the league that
evening (to J J Westhoven’s 249-289-246-784) and raised this first year
scratch bowler’s average for the year to a whopping 225. Nice shooting, buddy.
The second 300 of the night was stroked by Jack “Culligan
Boy” Carter. It’s a
well known fact it takes Jack a while to get his game going.
While others measure this time period in frames, Jack needs a
calendar. How else can one
explain scores of 178-180 coming out of the blocks and finishing with a
300 for 658? Easy. That’s just Jack’s game.
Thursday night during the Woods Auto Supply League the bar got
raised a bit. Rick
Riebesel was just plain on fire.
Rick threw his first 10 strikes of the evening in game one but a
pesky 10 pin on the eleventh ball cost him the perfecto.
Not bad, 289 in game one. Game
two started and Rick lined up again.
This time he completed the task and finished with 12 strikes to
score the 300 award. Gheesh, 23 shots, 22 strikes. The only question was will he
stroke the 211 needed for the 800 series.
After a strike, then an open frame (which his teammates stuck him
on btw), Rick threw a six bagger to erase any doubt. Rick finished with a superb 258 finale and scored an 847
series. That number tied him
for the all time Henry County High Individual Series with Shane Bofia who
shot it last year. Super
The final 300 of this awesome week went to Dan Hall during
his Primerica Mixed League Saturday night.
Dan started the night with games of 225-236 before throwing 12
perfect strikes for his game three 300 score, giving him a 761 series.
With Dan fighting wrist problems all season it sure is great to see
him pop a score again. Welcome
Special mention goes to the Henry County Bank team from the
Napoleon Party Mart Classic Thursday night.
The best ladies scratch team in Henry County stroked an 1106 actual
score in game two with scores of: Sue Dulaney-158; Veronica Marckel-225;
Shirley Perez-225; Kay DeVaux-243; Chris Spangler-255.
Nice game, gals.
