If you are looking for the highest scores rolled in town last week, look no further than the Wednesday night Fall Po-Boy series at Thunderbird Lanes.
Tournament director Richard Jacoby reported, “Twenty-one players took to the lanes for the second of six Fall Po-Boy Singles events.”
Mark Hill led the group with games of 256 and 268 for a 524 top seed qualifying set.
Defending champion Tory Morales was a close second with games of 227 and 279 for a 506.
The remaining in the top eight advancing to the match play bracket were Mike Wilson (480), Bill Oakes (473), Shannon Coleman (472), Tony Faustner (464), Craig Foster (455) and Marc Scholl (445).
First alternate was Michael Pierson with 437.
In the first round, Hill advanced over Scholl and Oakes squeaked by Coleman, needing all three strikes in the tenth to win 240-239.
Wilson moved on over Faustner 220-205 and in an upset, Foster sent Morales packing, with a 255 scratch score.
Oakes beat Hill 213-197 in the semis and Wilson advanced over Foster 194-191 to set up for the championship round where Oakes took care of business to win this week’s title 240-227.
Hill and Foster shared 3rd and 4th place.
There were just over a handful of 700 series’ rolled last week and two of them, by the same bowler.
Kudos to Jim Bomboy for a 737 in the Suburban league on games of 243, 268 and 226 and for a 713 in the His and Hers that went 259, 205 and 249.
The His and Hers was also the setting for the week’s highs by the unstoppable Chad Perry.
Chad started the night with the front ten strikes to post the high game of the week of 289 and then rolled 216 and 267 to capped off a 772 for the week’s high series.
Bomboy had the high series in the Suburban but he wasn’t alone in the 700 club.
Brandon Tipton joined with games of 234, 243 and 245 for a 722 and Demetrius Wilcox shot 213, 247, 247 for a 707.
Following the Po-Boy, Mark Hill added to his week’s take, games of 226, 238 and 267 for a 731 and the TNT league high set.
And the senior league bowler of the week was Dale Perry with a 716 from the Socialites on games of 213, 235 and 268.
Senior league high game honors went to Duane Hurwitz for a 279 rolled in the Golden Years.
Carter Croft had the youth high series of 532 and Caden Burk had the high game and only 200 this week of 214, both while bowling in the TBird Legends.
Jake Croft was a tad shy of average but still had the HotShots high series of 356, where Avery Hill post-ed the high game of 124.
Due to the holiday, Twin Oaks youth was not in session last Monday evening.
