Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

I was only ordinary tonight, but I managed not to shoot myself in the foot with single-pin misses. My only opens until the third game were on splits, and I had the misfortune of chopping a fence type of spare in that game.

Result: 158-190-162=510
Average (78 games): 180
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 592

Composite average (165 games): 180

Ed was the only one of us over average, and team only won the second game.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

I was on one of my weaker pairs tonight, and largely bowled like it, with no strikes on the right lane until the third game. Given how the night went, the 190 third game felt like a moral victory.

Result: 146-110-190=446
Average (90 games): 179
Average for last 9 games: 174
Next week's AVG+1 score: 545

Composite average (168 games): 180

Team managed to split 2-2, with Tom being the high of the bowlers actually there (two of the opponents pre-bowled).

My league bowling has been very lackluster recently. Certainly not throwing the ball poorly, just nothing really pops right now. Last two weeks I've been in the 640's, which is right at average. I'm picking up spares much better again, which I'm pumped about. And I am able to find good lines and stay in the pocket for most of the night, which is also nice. Just can't carry consistently.

This past week I opened with a 244. In the second game, I had to move left a couple boards to stay in the pocket. Unfortunately this opened my angle up and I started wrapping the 10 and left a couple stone 9's. Resulted in a 19x game. Third game, I had way too much angle so dropped a ball down and upped my speed. This fixed my line but gave me less back end so still couldn't carry consistently.

Might start a thread on this, but I'm thinking about upgrading everything to 16 lb. I currently throw 15#. It's a big investment, though, so I'd like to be confident it'll help.

I feel like crap, as I blew it for my team in playoffs.

Top 8 teams rolling off for the big money.
We were 3rd in total points and bowled the No6 team.

First game, 201, and we lost by 20.
Second game, 224, and we won by 40.
Third game, 131, and we lost by 30.
Lost 2 games and series, mostly because of me.

Game 3 saw 5 splits. Started with a double, then a 4-9, a 7-9, both strong but high. Let it out some and left a 2-8-10, then a 5-7. Finished with a light hit 4-5 in the 10th. Just horrible!!

So, we don't bowl for the $3500 top prize, and are in the loser's bracket, rolling for $1900. I cost my team $1600.

Had I not bowled, but taken my average less 10 pins, we would have won.

Never fun to leave a bad series out there like that at the end.

But look at the season as a whole. Bet they wouldn't have been in that position to begin with had you not been contributing better than that in all the other weeks.

Shake it off and bounce back to make sure y'all get the $1900! thumbsup

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

My night started out poorly (four straight open frames), and I never really recovered, though I bowled better after my ball change. My conversion of the 4-5-7 was probably the highlight of the night, given how difficult it is to cover the corner pin on that split.

Result: 138-170-171=479
Average (81 games): 179
Average for last 9 games: 163
Next week's AVG+1 score: 572

Composite average (171 games): 179

Ed was the only bowler present who shot 500, but we still failed to win points.

Tonight's bowling, frame-by-frame

I bowled well enough to get my +1 tonight, but I also left some pins out there in single-pin misses, especially the two 8 pins I left on great shots. However, to provide the balance, I converted a couple of splits.

Result: 195-188-173=556
Average (93 games): 180
Average for last 9 games: 181
Next week's AVG+1 score: 625

Composite average (174 games): 179

Si pre-bowled a 580, which provided us the foundation with which to win all four.

Won first round in playoffs tonite. We were the first team with the highest point total and we bowled the 4th team wild card. Next week, we bowl the winner of the 2 vs 3 spot for the championship. It was a no contest night. We won 22 of 26 possible points. Their first bowler shot 680 and beat our first man each game and series for the 4 points. I won all of my games and series and our anchor did the same. Shot 640 and was low on the team.

Payout is based on total points won during the league, which we are the highest, and the final finish position, which we bowl for first and second next week. We are doing well.

Won the Tuesday league last week without a rolloff as we won both halves.

And, have the third round of playoffs on Thursday, where we will be either 5th or 6th of 18 because of out first round loss.

Congrats on your win in the playoffs and in the other league. Good stuff.

My winter league season ended tonight. Our de-facto playoff in the Friday night league was last week. We were up by 7 points on the 2nd place team and got absolutely smoked 26-4. We dropped from 1st to 4th. Still had an outside shot of winning the league and I put forth my best effort with 246,237,236 for a 2nd half high of 719 and went 30 clean as well. However, my teammates struggled with transition and we only were able to take 12 points, dropping us to 5th in the final standings.

With my strong set tonight I managed to finish my Friday league at 220 and ended up with 213 in my Sunday league. Not too bad I guess considering I still have issues in my game that I need to work out (mainly staying behind the ball), so hope to be able to correct that over the summer.

nice shooting Wronghander.

Well, because we won both halves and it resulted in no playoff in the Senior league, a proposal has been submitted to take the top 2 teams in each half for a playoff. If 1 team is included twice, and it can only be in playoff once, then a wild card team will be entered. Which will be the next highest point total team.

That's fine, it adds some intrigue to a playoff. It will be voted on at the annual meeting before next season.
