The action was fast and furious in last week’s league play at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes.
In the Thursday afternoon Hood River County league, the Alley Cats prevailed in their pivotal match with the Incredibowls by winning three points. That enabled the Cats to win the second half in the league by a whisker thin 1.5 points. Since the Incredibowls won the first half these two teams get to do it again this week in a head to head roll off match for the league championship. We expect this match to be an incredible cat fight. Come on up and watch the fur fly!
The Thursday afternoon senior Lads & Lassies league will also end this week. The Cripples are currently leading and have a 2.5 point lead over S.O.S. so one of these two teams will win the second half. S.O.S. already won the first half.
As expected Tinman Heating won the third round in the Monday night Industrial league. This week they will join the first and second round winners, Hood River Supply and Team #8 as the top seeds in the league’s April madness elite eight bracket matches for the championship that will be determined in two weeks.
Two stars rose to the top in last week’s league action. Stan Pratnicki pounded the pins in the Industrial to the tune of a mighty fine scratch 247 game and 656 series that was 119 pins over his average, the best performance of all league bowlers last week. Stan just edged power player Jason Degeus who topped his average by 117 pins in the Wednesday night Fraternal league. Young Jason, who recently starred on the award winning HRVHS bowling team and has unlimited potential to become one of the best bowlers in the state, blasted a big-time scratch 279 game and 702 series. The adventurous Mr. Degeus is just getting back to bowling after recovering from a serious motor-cross accident. Welcome back, Jason, and from now on, remember, instead of getting your kicks by splattering yourself on Route 66, get your thrills by firing that booming ball of yours into those hapless tenpins. You make them explode like nobody else! Good bowling everybody!
