As I was very busy running the side action most of the Monday Summer Doubles season, and away for Lions Club meetings on the other Monday nights, I hardly had any time to keep track of award scores, much less do write-ups. So I’ll just write a bulk post of all of them for the season in chronological order, with only 300 games and 800 series (first three of four games) considered:
July 5, Ray Fischer, 300 2nd game
July 19, AJ Voisine, 283-266-278=827 series (1st career 800 series)
Although there were no big series on the Patriots league’s last position night of the season, there were four good games, led by a 288 thrown by Roland Sandefur, followed also by Aaron Major (279), Jason Sherwood (277), and Sean Richard (270) (see high scores). Nice bowling, everyone! 🎳🙂
This pandemic season was certainly a strange one for my league, but Sammy Wong (in photo above, courtesy of Strike F/X Pro Shops) made sure it ended up being a special one by throwing his first 300 in the first game of the roll-off to spark his team, Last Empire, to the league championship win. I hope to get the team photo tomorrow when the league pays out for the season. One thing I did get, however, was the video, which I actually went live on the Facebook page with for the first time, which will be below:
With the Patriots league season winding down, Aaron Major and Keith Kaestner had consistently good games last week in the Patriots league, with the former going 269-245-245 for a 759 (recap, Lane 51), and Kaestner bowling 264-236-257 for a 757 (recap, Lane 33). In addition, fine games were turned in by Shane Litchfield (279), Mike Trent Jr. (279), and Stan Lewis (278) last week (see high scores).
I relax the standards for the Pepsi league a little because of the lane conditions, of course, which allows me to write up this game from this other night, Dennis Johnson’s 266 (see high scores). WTG Dennis! 🎳👍
Did I mention Ethan Rosenberg wasn’t done after his first 800 set on Thursday night? All he did last weekend after that was go to Auburn for state tournament and put up his first 300 game in the doubles event there. Many thanks to Stephen Major for getting the video above to me, which first appeared on the Strike F/X Pro Shops Brockton Facebook page. Congrats again, Ethan! 🎳🔥
It’s been a matter of public record that Hakim Emmanuel had at least three 300 games (all in the same series, of course) before shooting his first 299, but he picked one of the latter up last week in the His & Hers league. Good bowling, sir! 🎳👍
As noted by the guys at Strike F/X Pro Shop, Ethan Rosenberg put together games of 289, 279, and 233 for an 801 series last Thursday night in the Patriots league (see recap, Lane 49), his first 800 series. Congrats Ethan! 🎳🔥
Also notable that night were Joe Bourhill’s 278-253-257 for a 788 set (recap linked above, Lane 52) and Jim Ferguson’s 288-247-220 for a 755 (also on recap, Lane 50). Nice bowling! 🎳👍
Last week’s Patriots league scores were headlined by a 290-226-269 effort by Jon “Hoss” Hester (see recap, Lane 38), and also featured a 279 game from Ray Fischer and a 270 from Cam Kaestner (see high scores). Great bowling! 🎳😊
Going the opposite of the usual and recognizing my league secretary first, with the trey last week, which his wife captured not just the last strike, but the three strikes in the 10th, on video and sent my way. As the only thing he wasn’t on yet was Instagram, I decided to put him there first:
Nobody had a good set a week ago in the Rhythm & Bowling league, however, for four of their games, they did their best Patriots league impression: Chris Zalewski led the charge with a 288, John O’Donnell posted a 280, Mo Wideman a 277, and Kris Higgins, not least, a 276 (see high scores). Good job guys! 🎳😎
Mike Trent Jr. had the biggest night of last week in the Patriots league, going 256-228-278 for 762 (see recap, Lane 38), and Jim Ferguson (as usual), also checked in with a 279 game (see high scores). Nice bowling! 🎳🙂
Recapping last week in the Patriots league, Jim Ferguson had the biggest night, going 225-279-247 for a 751 (recap, Lane 47), with Stan Lewis also checking in with a 279 and Shane Litchfield a 278 (per the high scores). Good bowling, guys! 🎳😁
He can comment on Facebook about how he got to the score, if he wishes, since it’s an unusual one, but Junji Zhang posted a 274 game the other night in the Pepsi league, which he suggested was also his personal high (see high scores). Good bowling! 🎳🙂
Taylor Sinkler continued to have the best season of the Westgate women last Friday in the TNBA league, posting 213-247-213 for a 673 set (recap, Lane 52; Note: Was bowled on different pair because of league’s social distancing rule). Nice bowling! 🎳🙂
(Editor’s note: I finally did get up to Westgate last Friday night to visit with Taylor.)
There was a relative paucity of scoring in the Patriots league last week, but both Paris Cook and Tom “T-Bone” Roberson flirted with perfect games, both leaving one on the deck with the last shot. Also, Aaron Major had one of his more usual good games with a 279 (see high scores). Good bowling guys! 🎳😎
And a score worth noting because of the lane condiition: Ed Roberts had 238-228-234 Monday night in the Pepsi league for 700 on the button (recap, Lane 54; Note: This was actually bowled on 59-60 per the league’s social distancing rules). Nice bowling! 🎳🔥
The TNBA league last Friday night saw two big nights, with Chris Zalewski getting the front 22, finishing 300-287-190 for a 777 (recap, Lane 54), and Devon McGregor going 225-298-247 for a 770 (Lane 48 on linked recap). For the women, Jessica Lowe also had a 258 game (see high scores).
There was plenty to go with last week in the Patriots league, starting with “Ka$h” posting 278-245-268 for a 791 (see recap, Lane 45) and Jon Hester bowling 279-257-217 for a 753 (same recap, Lane 46; Note: Match actually took place on 53-54 due to breakdown). Keith Kaestner provided the other big highlight of the league’s week, with a 289 game (see high scores), with Mike Major and Stan Lewis also having 279 games, and Mike Trent Jr. a 276.
Sometimes, a good night in one league sets you up for a big night in another, and that may have been the case for Ray Fischer last week, as, prior to his 300 game in the Pepsi league, he put up 225-266-213 for a 704 set (see recap, Lane 54on the Broadway pattern, which is lane condition for the last quarter of that league’s season. Great night, Ray! 🎳😎
