We entered the middle game of our early season road stretch for both the boys and the girls. Both teams played against Dutchtown at Premier lanes in Gonzales, LA. As expected, they were a formidable opponent on both sides.
The girls ran into an on-fire Dutchtown girls squad who jumped out to an early 6-3 lead over the Jackets. We clawed back in during the second game to split 4-4 but the deficit proved too much to overcome with the Griffins taking another 6-2 game along with total pins. The final score was an 8-19 loss to Dutchtown.
High lane MVP Layla Legendre once again paced the girls with a 540 (190). Angel Beadle delivered a strong performance to take the low lane MVP with a 409 (148).
The boys kicked off their match with a clear win in the first game 6-2. The head to head games were relatively close throughout with the Jackets pulling away for the win in the late frames of the first game. The boys made no substitutions today. Denham Springs took a 13-3 lead after the second game and closed it out with a final of 22.5-4.5. The boys were excellent with their convertible spares and left few splits. It is definitely an outcome to build upon.
Cade Fletcher brought a ton of confidence and a ton of strikes to pace the boys with a stunning 718 series (257,224,237). This led all bowlers today. Mason Brock bowled consistently in the 190’s out of the 1 spot with a 581 (199).
Our next matches are at Circle Bowl. The girls will bowl Istrouma and the boys will face off against Catholic High.
Be there to support your Jackets!!!
Denham Springs girls: ??-1**
Denham Springs boys: 2-0
**It came to our attention that McKinley will not be fielding a girls team this season. This likely affects the outcome of our first win and potentially the averages of the bowlers. Until we know for certain we will leave that one out as an “unknown”. We may be 1-1.
