Sean Richard 278/791, Keith Kaestner 289 highlight Apr. 1 Patriots league scoring

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.

Nice bowling, all around! 🎳😎

Ray Fischer tosses 300/761, Brian Egan 289, Jon Hester 279 in Patriots league

Ray Fischer has been a great competitor at Westgate for many years, and continues to be one even today, proving it last Thursday night in the Patriots league, capping off a night in which he started 215-246 with a 300 for a 761 set (see recap, Lane 49). Brian Egan also had a 289 game that night, and Jon Hester a 279 (see high scores).

Stephen Major, Ray’s grandson, recorded and sent me the video shown below:

Congrats Ray, and nice bowling Brian & Jon! 🎳👏

Ed Grossett rolls 763, Ethan Reyes 278 in Patriots league

Ed Grossett is probably the best back-up bowler (back-up = right-handed, but ball moves left-to-right) in Massachusetts, and maybe in New England. This will be my first mention of him here (at least for a score) since his first 300 game, which came here at Westgate six years ago at the state tournament, as he turned in a fine 255-253-255 for a 763 set Thursday night in the Patriots league (see recap, Lane 41). Also, Ethan Reyes posted a 279 game last week (see high scores).

WTG guys! 🎳👏

Aaron Major 300/807, Brian Egan, Jon Hester 300s lead Mar. 11 Patriots scoring

If you thought Chris Zalewski’s 809 series last Wednesday night was something, the Patriots league wasn’t going to be outdone, as Aaron Major had 300-268-239 for an 807 of his own (Lane 47). While this wasn’t a bigger set than Zalewski’s, it was the scoring by the other bowlers that was the outdoing, as Brian Egan and Jon Hester both threw 300 games in the first game as teammates (see recap on Lane 50), with only Mark Zimmerman’s 224 preventing it from being a team award game (by a pin). All of this made Jim Ferguson’s 278/762 night look paltry by comparison (recap linked on Lane 47 above; see Lane 40).

Great night guys! 🎳😎👏

Keith Kaestner rolls 299, Joe Bourhill 287/781, Sean Richard, Jim Ferguson 279 in Patriots league

Recapping a big Patriots league night last week, Keith Kaestner had the biggest game of all, with a 299 (see high scores, but Joe Bourhill the biggest night, going 257-237-287 for a 781 (see recap, Lane 33). Wrapping it up, Hall of Famers Sean Richard and Jim Ferguson also had a 279 each as teammates in the first game (see recap, Lane 47). Nice bowling guys! 🎳👏

Brian Egan shoots 290/782, Danny Khuu 756, Omar Butcher 277 in Patriots league

Two of these names will be familiar, but one not so much: Congrats to Brian Egan, who ran the back 11 in the first game, and followed by games of 260 and 232 for a 782 set last week in the Patriots league (see recap, Lane 46). Danny Khuu also went 251-247-258 for a 756 (recap, Lane 34), and Omar Butcher threw a 277 game (see week’s high scores).

Nice bowling guys! 🎳🔥👌
