The Wednesday match this week saw both teams face off against Baton Rouge High who is fielding both a boys and a girls squad this year. It is always exciting to see growing programs in high school bowling.
Both teams today entered matches with key players out with illnesses.
The girls kicked off their match by splitting the head to head games 3-3 with the visiting Bulldogs who bowled their best game of the match in game one. Lakin Fletcher paced the Jackets with a solid 201 game. Briana Daigle bowled a 121 on the low lane to both exceed her average by 20 pins and secure the point. Total pins went to the Jackets in game one to set out with a 5-3 lead. Game two saw the Bulldogs drop back a little and the Jackets sped out to a 6-2 advantage. Cara Palamentier bowled a 119 on the low lane to secure her point and exceed her average by nearly 30 pins. With the match still in doubt the third game proved to be the deciding factor. The Jackets raced out to the best game of the day collecting an 818 as a team with Audrey Cedotal leading the way with a 192. The team carried a 7-1 advantage in the final game to pull out to a 21-6 win in the end.
The boys got off to a solid start in game one with Mason Brock (204) and Gabriel Eunice (256) posting games above their average on the high lane and Randall Mitchell filling in for the one spot with a 139 to carry his point. The high lane bowled 654 to help move the team out to a quick 7-1 advantage. Game two was more decisive with Cade Fletcher posting a 213 and Gabriel Eunice once again posting a scintillating 233 game to continue his hot start. Dylan Fowler dropped in a 197 on the low lane to carry his point by over 100 pins. The margin after game 2 was 15-1 which allowed us to substitute liberally in the last game. The high lane players stayed put as multiple players had shots at their high series.
In game three Dylan Bossom paced the low lane with his high game ever, a 132. On the high lane Gabriel Eunice needed a 211 to turn out his first 700 series. He decided to leave no doubt after a shaky open in the second frame to post seven strikes in a row to finish with a 257 and a Baton Rouge region leading 746 series.
The boys finished with a 24-3 final score over the visiting Bulldogs.
Gabriel Eunice puts the finishing touches on a 257 game and a 746 series.
