Three bowlers hammered out some blistering scores in Classic Lanes league play during the week ending Jan. 15. Kieth Ethridge rolled his first-ever 299 game; Angela Allen popped a 289 game; Shayne Wilson fired another 300 game and narrowly missed an 800 series; and a total of six 700-plus series scores went on the recap sheets.
In addition, a number of shooters scored well above average. And in the Thursday Men’s Commercial league, the King Pins team fired one of the better team games and three-game sets seen in recent years in the local bowling center.
Ethridge, bowling with the King Pins on lanes 3-4 in the Thursday Men’s Commercial league, rolled his 299 in game two. Ethridge, a 198 average right-hander, strung the first 11 strikes before leaving a single pin on his fill ball. He said later that the final shot went just a bit high in the pocket and left the 4-pin standing.
Ethridge, averaging198 at the beginning of play, opened with a 246 before stroking the 299. As is often the case with the majority of gunners after a big game, he faded a bit in the third to a 170 and wound up with a 715 series for the night.
Angela Allen started the high-game outburst in the Sunday Night Mixed on Jan.11, firing a 289 in game one on lanes 5-6 while bowling with the Big Dogs team. The 289 propelled her into second place in the women’s high scratch game category for the league’s season, trailing only Becky Bowden’s 11-in-a-row 290 posted earlier.
Allen, averaging 177 going into the set, went on to shoot a pair of 180-plus games and rack up a 659 series on the night.
In the Thursday men’s league competition, Wilson – a 230-average bowler and also a member of the King Pins squad – added another perfect game to his extensive 300 collection in game one, and followed up with 248-242 games to barely miss a coveted 800 series honor mark with a 790. The lofty series was not Wilson’s best of the year in the Thursday league, however. He recorded a 798 block earlier in the season.
