So it was a really good afternoon Monday for Wildcat bowlers.
The Lady Wildcats bounced back from a trouncing last week at the hands of Middleville Thornapple Kellogg in a 28-2 win over Forest Hills Eastern and the boys captured their first dual match victory of the season by the same score.
The Wayland ladies started byt taking both Baker games and found themselves up 10-0.
Match game one had Hayley Taylor winning her point by 47 pins, Breanna Hyde by 21 pins, Bella Harnish rolled a 196 and Kadence Bottrall 193. The ladies took total pins as well.
Game two had Hayley Taylor taking her match point again, as well as Breanna Hyde, Bella Harnish 235, and Kadence Bottrall 242.
The boys’ outfit worked hard at practice last week focusing on hitting the pocket.
“We can’t work on the spare game until we can hit the pocket consistently,” coach Sherry Miklusicak said. “I am very proud of our keglers as they really did an outstanding job of that goal tonight! Our spare game will be our next focus.”
Deven Gardner marked in three out of four frames of the first Baker, including two strikes. Newcomer Tyler Omness did the same and the ‘Cats were up 10-0.
In match one, Max Oosterhouse took his point with a great 173, Steven Harnish with a 140, Alan Beggs with a 193, and high game for the boys was Mark Musgrave with a 201. Wayland took total pins this game as well, with an 832 total which is high for this season.
Wayland took 8 out of 9 points and would have won the match already with a combined score of 18 points.
Match two was fun as well. Taking points were Max Oosterhouse, Steven Harnish, Tyler Omness held up the team this game with a nice 184 game, and Alan Beggs. Team total was 758.
“We hope you have been enjoying our game streams, as that is the only way we can have spectators at this point,” Miklusicak said.
