The Jacket boys were looking to notch a good win on their schedule as Archbishop Rummel out of the Catholic League in New Orleans met up with us at Premier lanes in Gonzales to finish out the series between New Orleans and Baton Rouge crossover matches. The two teams were pretty evenly matched with averages being within 10 pins at nearly every position on the roster.
The boys noted that the lane conditions were going to force them to move in and throw uncomfortable lines. Still, they worked well with what the lanes gave them racing out quick dropping a 1142 out the gate with Mason Ballard shooting 200 in the 3 spot and Cade Fletcher continuing his torrid pace from the last match rolling 233. About half the matches were close towards the end with late marks in the 9th and 10th being the difference. The Jackets led 8-0 after 1 and scored a 150 pin advantage in total pins.
Game 2 saw the team continue their solid start with three players bowling 200. Cade Fletcher once again led the team with a 253. Quincy Brown tossed in a 220 from the five spot and Mason Ballard once again notched a deuce with a 204. The Jackets also picked up 6 more points to get to 14 putting the match out of reach for Archbishop Rummel.
The last game of the match allowed for a couple of substitutions from our varsity bench. The team repeated their 6 point performance from the second game with three more 200 games. Mason Ballard finished out the 600 with a 227. Quincy Brown started his last game with the front eight strikes to finish with a 256.
Cade Fletcher notched the high-6 with a team leading 688 series (233,253,202).
Quincy Brown finished with 670 (194, 220, 256)
Mason Ballard finished with 631 (200, 204, 227)
The Jackets finished with a 3459 with a total pins advantage of 596 pins. The team nearly shot 700 on the high lane the last game and notched a 214 average for the top three spots despite a few pedestrian games mixed in there. The 1 and 2 bowlers rolled pretty consistent games indicating that they do not intend to surrender their roster spots just yet to our steadily improving bench.
The final score was 23-4 in favor of the home Yellowjackets.
