Last night was one for the ages. My partner and i has built up a 26-2 matych play record so far in the second half and in first by about 8 games of so. We were playing the third place team, which happened to come in second last half. Their two bowlers (Two man teams) had 198 and 233 averages, and myself and my partner carry a 223 and 229 average- so we knew there would be fireworks- On a side note, the 198 average meant we gave them 10 pins a game- which was a far cry from the 80 or so we give a game on a weekly basis.
The gentleman with the 233 average on the other team starts off with a 300- which would normally be a big deal
, but he already has 3 this season. His partner bowled a 244 giving them a 544 total- OUCH. My partner and I bowled a 490+ and still got whupped.
The second game, my partner and I managed a 475 total- BUT, this gentleman bowled ANOTHER 300! Not to mention his partner bowled in the 230's- well above average again and a 530+ total.
In a historic third game, the gentleman with 2 300's started out with the first two-26 strikes in a row, but had a couple misteps the next couple frames and finished with a 233. Far less than what he should have had given how he was throwing last night, but his partner was there to pick him up with a 260 game.
All I know is that they finished the night around 1560 as a total. Thats a 260 average for both of them. My partner and I were around 1470 and thought we bowled pretty well. I maintained average with about 227 a game and my partner bowled a bit above his.
Overall, a fun night, but one of those "What can ya do except watch" kind of nights. Anyone else have a story like that? it would be fin to hear about either a great night by you or someone you bowled against...
