Randy’s Painting won the Monday night Industrial League at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes last week. They absolutely crushed Columbia Hills RV in the championship match 28 points to 2. Randy Nieto was the driving force in the contest as he rolled a solid scratch 648 series that was capped by nifty 242 and 224 games. Randy was 90 pins over his average. That’s some pretty darn good clutch bowling by Randy, who doubles as the sponsor of his team.

Last week, the Monday night Industrial League at Hood River’s Orchard Lanes had its final four bracket matches in its season-ending championship tournament: in a contest that was much closer than it shook out, Randy’s Painting topped Hood River Supply 19 points to 11 and in an epic battle, Columbia Hills RV and defending champion 3 Fingers Deep tied at 15 points each, so the deciding factor became which team had rolled the most total pins in their three game contest.
