Versailles Boys Varsity Bowlers Now 5-2

Michael Davidson
The Varsity Boys Bowlers recently competed in 2 more WOHSBC matches against Ottawa Glandorf and Parkway. They faced Ottawa Glandorf at Speedway Lanes in New Bremen and Parkway at Community Lanes in Minster.

The match against the Titans was set to be a good one. On paper, the Tigers and the Titans were very close in total team average. OG came out strong the first game rolling a 1,028 to Versailles 995. “After the first 5 frames OG was on fire and we were very flat. After a talk with the kids, they pulled it together and ended up the game finishing strong and keeping the match close.” The second game belonged to the Tigers 960-910. This put the Tigers up 17 pins going into the 5 Baker Games.

Versailles struggled in the 1st game rolling a 146 to the Titans 198. The next 3 games went to the Tigers 196-192, 195-162 and 195-162. This put Versailles up 33 pins with 1 Baker game to go. OG ended up winning the last Baker game 173-168 but it was not quite enough as Versailles won 2,858 to 2,830. Leading scorers for the Tigers was Jordan Groff 232, Michael Davidson 222 & 201 and Nathan Peters with a 205 & 202. “After losing two matches by less than a total of 45 pins, it was great to see the kids win a close one.”

The match against Parkway was all Versailles. The Tigers came out of the gates firing a 1,082 to 792. The second game Versailles also won 985 to 871. All 5 Baker games went to Versailles as well; 203-122, 210-118, 148-132, 247-156 and 209-170. The total score was Versailles 3,084 to Parkway 2,361.
