Steve Edwards powered out a 798 series, just two sticks shy of a coveted 800 honor score, in league play Thursday night at Classic Lanes.
Edwards, bowling with the Watkins team on lanes 3-4 in the Thursday Men’s Commercial League on Feb. 12, opened the big set with a 270 game, followed up with a near-perfect 279 in game two, and closed the set by striking out from the sixth frame for a 249.
The right-hander carried a 196 average into the night’s action. With his 11-pin handicap (the league calculates individual handicap on the basis of 80 percent of the bowler’s average from 210), he compiled an 831 handicap total, highest in the league for the season to date.
Edwards’ scratch series was the third 798 of the 2008-09 season in the Thursday men’s league. He joins Jason Keller and Shayne Wilson on that lofty perch.
Edwards’ 798 was one of six 700-plus series sets at Classic Lanes for the week ending Feb. 13. Three of the sevens came in the Tuesday Night Mixed and three from the Thursday men’s league.
Angela Allen paced the women’s scoring for the week with a 653 in the Sunday Night Mixed on Feb. 8. (Because of early deadlines, reports from the Sunday and Monday leagues appear in this column a week later than the other two leagues.)
