Taylor fires 280 game at Classic Lanes

E-mail Print PDF
A sticky 4-pin may have cost Glen Taylor a perfect game, but he wasn’t complaining after league play in the Thursday Men’s Commercial league on April 9.
Bowing with the A&S Entertainment team on lanes 13-14, Taylor rolled 10 strikes in a row in the third game to card a 280, his highest sanctioned game in league play to date. Taylor, averaging 194 to open play, shot 222 and 216 games before firing the 280 for a 718 series.
Taylor’s series score was one of four 700s recorded in the Thursday league. Watkins teammates Tarry Davison and Steve Edwards rolled 752 and 738 respectively, and Neldon Smith carded a 709. Kenny Taylor shot the high handicap series for the night, a 773, with a 668 scratch set off a 166 average.
Four other 700s were posted by bowlers in two other leagues.
In the Sunday Night Mixed on April 5, another two teammates topped the 700 mark. Alan Roberts and Harold McClure of the Whistle Blowers squad stroked 758 and 712 sets respectively. The Tuesday Night Mix also yielded a pair of sevens, a 765 by Cliff Whitney and a 711 by Jason Parmer.
Betty Russell’s 649 in the Tuesday mixed league topped the women’s series scoring for the week ending April 10, with Karla Dailey firing a 624 in the Sunday Night Mixed and Shannon Hague posting a 612 in the Tuesday mixed league.
Notable scores for the week included, by league:

Cliff Whitney interrupted ragging me over my spare game (more specifically, the lack thereof) when he stepped up on the approach, shooting 244-267-254 for his 765.
