Following an impressive domination of the vacant team last week, SoaL hoped to continue on their winning ways. Sitting in second place, trailing Abducted by only 3 points, a good week could move us closer or into 1st place.
- Abducted 52 – 18
- SoaL 49 – 21
- Flying Pins 46 – 24
- BPs House 45 – 25
- Pops Family 43 – 27
Tonight, we were going up against Pops Family, the fifth place team, who trail us by only six points. A bad week and we could potentially fall to fifth place but we haven’t had a losing week yet, much less been swept. The first game didn’t get off to a good start for anybody and many marks were missed. Bob and Jenn eventually found their rhythm while Andrew and myself continued to struggle. I found my grove near the end but it was too late and I missed my average with Andrew. Pops ended up winning the first game by 31 pins.
The second game came a drastic change from the first and the first of us began to dominate. It wouldn’t matter that Pops improved on their first game by 20 pins because we jumped up by 165 pins and won game 2.
The third game ended up being a close one even though we all bowled pretty well in general. I ended up throwing what should have been 11 strikes in a row but the 10-pin was hating on me. The game came down to the 10th frame and we were slightly ahead. Andrew and Bob ended with a good finish leaving me to obtain just one mark for the win. I struck and secured SoaL the third game win and the series win, earning us another 5 points in the standings. However, the first place team, Abducted, won all 7 points and we fell another 2 points out of first place. We’re pretty happy though with our .720 winning %.
Jen, Andrew and I each earned two more points for the Bet and Bob ended up with 3.
