My youngest son is on the Eastwood Bowling team. They went to the Port Clinton Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 29. Keith is normally the bowler who sits out the games and comes in on the baker games. That day he was brought in half way through the second game (yes, they can do that now!). He had strikes and spares with one open for a 160 something game. The third game he bowled a 213, I think, close to that anyhow.
The boys team came in second place out of the 12 or so teams in that round. They were only 10 pins behind the first place team. So round two began, with a dozen or so new teams, while we went to lunch and did some shopping, had 3-4 hours to kill between rounds. Went back to the alley, early, and stood around for about two hours and it was very steamy...hot! The alley should of put the A/C on, because it was very warm. The bowling balls were sweating the oil from the lanes!
Oh, out of the two rounds eight boys teams went to the third round, for a total of 16 boys teams in the last round. This last round was all baker games. The best of three baker games got to continue bowling and the losing team was done...kinda like a single elimination.
Our boys won the first two bakers in the first set. They won the first, lost the second and came back and won the third to win the second round. The third round they won the first two bakers. The last round, which was the last two teams rolling off, they lost the first game, came back and won the second game 260 something to 160 something (they had 9 strikes in a row), and then won the third game with a very exciting finish of 215-213! Thanks to John P. our anchor bowler who struck out in the 10th frame! First place in the tournament!
Our varsity girls won the first round, took lunch, came back and placed second in the tournament! Four of each of the girls teams went on to the championship games, for a total of eight teams. Way to go EW girls!
Here are some layouts I did of our winning Eastwood Bowling champs...and a layout of my son and his girlfriend.
