Jim Williams led his team, Grey Beards, to a three way tie for fifth place in the team standings, after his 711 three game scratch series Thursday night.

  Williams started the night slow with a 186 for the first game, but was able to regroup quickly and shoot games of 290 and 235 to finish out the session.  William’s 290 score during the second game of the competition included eleven of the 12 strikes needed for a perfect game.  
    Allan Hague was Sunday’s Super Bowl Post Bowl overachiever of the week shooting 30 of the 36 possible strikes available for a three game session.  Hague tossed an impressive 798 scratch series on lanes one and two.  Hague almost pulled off the rare feat of bowling back to back 300 games in one night.  Hague started the set with a 201 and followed with games of 300 and 297 to complete the evening 150 pins above his average for series.  

Super Bowl Post Bowl
    If an individual were looking for the Cowboys to have a winning record this season one might look to the Super Bowl Post Bowl league instead of your flat screen sitting in your living room. Phillip Coleman, team captain for the Cowboys, led his team to four wins Sunday with his stellar 682 three game scratch set.  Coleman, competing on a 187 individual average, shot scores of 246, 191 and 245.  
    Coleman’s teammates, Roger Honea and Jim Beard, chipped in with sets of 609 and 661 to help the team climb into a two way tie for third place in the team standings.  With the guy’s solid effort, the team has a .650 record thus far in the season.  Honea’s wife, Tammy, was present the week to keep score and motivate the team occasionally.  
    Shayne Wilson recorded one of the five near perfect games tossed this week at Classic Lanes with his 290, shot during the second game of Sunday’s competition.   Wilson added a 233 the last game of the night to insure his team’s flawless victory over their opponents and compile a 770 three game scratch series.  Wilson and his team, the Packers, coasted into sole possession of first place in the team standings after Sunday’s performance.  

Monday Night Trio
    Ann Haas, leadoff bowler for Ann & 2 Gents., unloaded on her competition Monday night with an extraordinary 448 three game scratch set.  Haas charted scores of 145, 147 and 156 on her 104 individual average.  Haas’ achievement pushed her team into a two way tie for third place in the team standings.  Corey Ogle and Allan Hague took on the roles of team cheerleaders while Haas was saddled with doing all the work for the team.  
    Jason Keller got in on the choker trend this week posting his near perfect game during Monday’s mixed play.  Keller recorded the high series of the night shooting a 735 three game scratch set on lanes nine and 10.  Keller booked a 298 during the second game of the night that included the first 11 of the 12 strikes needed for a 300 game.  

Monday Night Ladies
    Rhonda Stephens blew away her competition Monday night with her outstanding 590 three game scratch series.  Stephens nabbed games of 214, 198 and 178 on her 172 individual average.  Stephens and her team, the Lake Fork Hookers, took three of the four possible wins for the evening.  
    Cathy King finished a close second during Monday’s action with her 588 scratch effort.  King, competing on a 158 average, nailed games of 189, 194 and 205.  The Lake For Hookers anchor bowler led the team to three wins and first place in the team standings.  

Tuesday Night Mixed
    Betty Russell posted the only 600 set from the women’s division this week with a 601 scratch series during Tuesday’s mixed play.  Russell bagged games of 233 and 191 on her 185 individual average to help her team, the Strikers, take all four wins for the match.  
    Neldon Smith charted the men’s high set of the night with a respectable 731 three game scratch series.  Smith, a Classic Lanes regular for many seasons, booked substantial games of 277 and 259 in the process of bumping his team into a two way tie for tenth place in the team standings.  
    Angie Benson carried her team, Quality Home Services, to three wins Tuesday night with her above par 400 scratch set.  Benson, leadoff bowler for the team, rolled games of 165 and 130 on her 117 average.  Benson’s teammate and husband, Duwayne, showed up to carry her equipment from the car and fetch the occasional drink refill from the snack bar.  
    Penny Shelton was Tuesday’s last leading lady of the night, firing a 534 scratch series while competing on lanes thirteen and fourteen.  Shelton shot scores of 197, 179 and 158 to help her team, The Avid Reader, take all four possible wins for the session.  

Thursday Men’s Commercial
    Jason Keller took another stab at shooing a perfect game Thursday night, falling just short with an awesome 279 during the second game of the bout.  Keller’s effort included, yet again, eleven of the twelve strikes needed to complete the task.  Keller did manage to claim the high set of the night with his 727 three game scratch series.  
    Justin Haggerty rolled the second high set of the night his 704 scratch series.  Haggerty was above his 204 individual average all evening booking scores of 220, 258 and 226.  Haggerty’s production was enough to only garner one win for his team and take a strong hold on last place in the team standings.
