Sports briefs for Oct. 8.
There were bunches of big bowling scores in last week’s league action at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes. We can’t remember if the team of the week has ever racked up so many pins like this one did — a total of 4,000 pins from each bowler’s scratch series plus their handicap may be a record for a five-person team. It’s definitely an indicator of some mighty fine bowling, which means our bowlers are getting comfortable with our new synthetic lanes!

Last week’s league action at Hood River’s venerable Orchard Lanes produced a hatful of prodigious scores. We knew it would be a short time before the big shooters in town found the range on our brand new synthetic lanes. The team of the week reads like a who’s who in Hood River bowling.
The Hood River Valley High Eagles football team played extremely tough in a Special District 1 home game against the highly regarded and fifth-ranked Bend Lava Bears (4-0). A much younger Eagles (0-4) squad with just eight seniors made a valiant effort against a more experienced Bend team (20 seniors) and they were within two scores for most of the game last Friday.
