The shootout came in game two of the Classic Lanes-Ken Parker Services matchup on lanes 15-16. In that game, two bowlers – Turk Morgan with Classic Lanes and Mike Love of Ken Parker Services – each fired 279 games.
Love, a 188 average bowler, and Morgan, one of the elder statesmen of league bowling at the local center and carrying a 202 average, were shooting in the number three and number four slots respectively on the five-man teams when each hit the 279 mark. Morgan bracketed his big game with 193 and 216 efforts for a 688 on the night, while Love rolled 176 and 184 on each side of his 279 for a 639 set.
Fittingly, the two teams split, each winning two of four available points
And in the Tuesday Night Mixed league on Feb. 3, another shootout developed – but this one was the equivalent of the USS Missouri going against a leaky rowboat.
Dave Gholson, averaging 202, nailed the first nine strikes in game one, but missed the pocket on the first ball in the final frame and had to settle for a 275. Gholson was going head-to-head with me in that game. While he opened with nine strikes, I mostly just opened – proving that a heavy artillery shot will take out a 22-Short rimfire every time.
While all that was going on, Keith Ethridge, bowling with the King Pins team on lanes 1-2, fired a triplicate score – three consecutive games of 223, the top triplicate score this year at Classic Lanes. Ethridge opened play on a 200 average before nailing the impressive set in the Thursday men’s league.
