This week was a tough one. We went up against KNC, a team ahead of us in the standings, but one whom we had bowled well against in the past. We were pretty even in handicap, so this was going to be a shootout.
First game, Candy on KNC dropped 7 strikes in a row on us en route to a 191. Her average is 136, so you can see where this is going. Jen beat her average by 20 and Bob by 16, but Andrew fell short by 16 and Brandon came in 57 pins under average with a 133. We lost the first game by 90 pins. Ouch.
Second game was much better. Jen struggled to a 125, but Andrew got on the board with a 178, Bob put the hammer down for a 213 and Brandon rebounded by a hundred pins for a 233. We won the second game by 99 pins.
This set us up for the third game, which was nearly a complete washout. Jen stormed back with a 149, but Andrew, Bob, and Brandon all came in under average. We lost the game by 85 to lose the overall by 76. Oy vey.
Also, this night was marred by poor sportsmanship on behalf of your author. As Brandon stepped to the line with the game and series all out of hand, but needing three strikes in the 10th to make his average, he was mercilessly Noonaned. While I was trying to be funny, it was not well received. Sorry about that. Said Noonaning has resulted in a 2 point penalty for Bob in The Bet.
