We started off our 2020 season at the beginning of a 3 game road stretch for both the boys and the girls. The first of those matches were played at Circle Bowl. The boys bowled against against Madison Prep. The girls bowled against McKinley.
The girls won their match by default as the opponent did not show. The final score was 27-0. They bowled very well as a group.
Layla Legendre paced the girls with a 521 (185). Lakin Fletcher also had a solid set with a 502 (180). Angel Beadle had a strong game in the three spot with a 143. Layla was the high lane MVP for this match and Cara Palamentier was the low lane MVP putting up her high game of 121.
The boys kicked off their match with a decisive first game win 7-1. After the first game Denham Springs was up by 265 pins. After a few substitutions Denham Springs expanded the lead some to 13-3 but did not quite have enough to secure the win. The final game started off with the Chargers taking in a lead in almost every head to head match. The Jackets recovered in the back half of the game to pull off 3 wins but the final game went to the Chargers 5-3. Denham Springs remained in control of total pins even with the loss resulting in a final score of 18-9.
Gabe Eunice paced the boys with a 618 (222,225). Dylan Fowler had a strong game in the three spot with a 180.
This match gave our teams a glimpse into the difficulty of bowling in a venue many of our athletes were not familiar with. We have some adjustments to make and some situations to better prepare for.
Both teams will be on the road at Premier Lanes in Gonzales against Dutchtown on Wednesday. Be there to support your Jackets!!!
Denham Springs girls: 1-0
Denham Springs boys: 1-0
