Two bowlers fired 800s this week: Steve Pollin and Kenny Flanagan both of Ambridge.
Pollin, 36, rolled his first 800, a huge 846, in the Beaver Valley Tenpin Travel League at Baden Bowl. He started with a personal-best 290, a 256 and improved with his first 300.
“I felt I was in a zone that night. The window where I could throw the ball was so wide everything was coming back into the pocket. In the first game, I started with a 10-pin spare. In the second game, I left a 7 pin and I left the 3-6-10 pins. The only change I made that night was I moved a board to the left in the second game after I threw a Brooklyn. Up until the 10th th frame of the last game, the only thing I was thinking about was it was a big match for our team. We were in second place, and we needed the points. In the 10th, my heart started beating and the legs were shaky. Before every ball, I took a deep breath and they were all pretty good strikes. It was an unreal feeling. The first thing I did when I left the lanes was call my dad. He was so proud and amazed I achieved this,” Pollin said.
Pollin had a string of 13 strikes in a row between games one and two and finished the night with the last 18 strikes in a row. He had 33 strikes out of 36.
Flanagan, 20, rolled an 831 in the Baden Men’s Classic League at Baden Bowl. He tossed a 268, 295 and 268 for his 11th 800 set.
“I rung a 10 pin in the first frame, and then I threw the next five. I threw a really bad shot and left the 3-9 pins. Took the sheet and shot 268. Going into the second game, I just made better shots. The 12th frame was a pretty decent shot. It was clean off my hand, but the ball read a couple of feet earlier than I wanted. It was a nice five-count split. In the last game, I moved two left on the right lane, maybe a board left on the left lane. I kept plugging away, and I started with the front seven. The 800 wasn’t even on my mind. I made good shots, and the pins fell,” Flanagan said.
Three days later, Flanagan also rolled a 290 in the second game of the Monaca Community League at Baden Bowl. He left a ringing 10 pin and then threw the next 20 strikes in a row. He left another 10 pin that cost him another 800. In his last four league nights in the Beaver Valley, Flanagan shot 836, 831, 794 and 751. That’s a 267 average over 12 games.
Two women rolled 700s: Sheri Fubio of Ambridge and Stephanie Adkins of Brighton Township.
Fubio rolled her 18th 700, a personal-best 771, in the Klunkers League at Fair Oaks Lanes. She had games of 234, 268 and 269.
“I threw a lot of strikes, but pretty much everybody on my pair was bowling well. The lanes were really nice. I left a couple of 10 pins in the first game and actually missed one of them. Then I didn’t leave much the rest of the night. I left a 10 pin and a 7 pin in the second game. I left the 4-7 pins and a 10 pin in the third game. On the night, I would say I was very consistent,” Fubio said.
Adkins tossed a 727 in the Tuesday Night Mixed League at Beaver Valley Bowl in Rochester. She rolled a 244, 279 and 204 for her 34th 700 set.
“I was in a slower pace, and I think that’s why I did better. I remember I left a 7 pin in the fifth frame of the 279, and I was really proud that I didn’t have any opens all night,” Adkins said.
Kelly Krznaric of New Sewickley Township rolled a personal-best 296, the women’s high game of the week, in the first game of the Sokols League at Fair Oaks Lanes.
“In the eighth frame I was getting nervous, and in the ninth frame even more. The first two in the 10th were great hits. On the last ball, my legs felt like jello. I didn’t follow through, and the ball didn’t come in. I left the 1-2-4-10 pins, but I was very happy with the game,” she said.
Four other bowlers fired 300s: Don Ware III of Rochester, Larry Charlton of Ambridge, Mike Piroli of Brighton Township and Bill Adams of Economy.
Ware, 51, rolled his 34th 300 in the second game of the Baden Men’s Classic League.
“I didn’t throw a lot of bad balls the first game. I just carried better the second game. I’ve been struggling so it felt good to throw one,” Ware said.
Charlton, 58, shot his 12th 300 in the first game of the Tenpin Travel League at Baden Bowl.
“I was bowling very poorly in practice. Then before the game started, Steve Pollin told me, ‘Larry, you threw 27 strikes out of 32 in the Baker Tournament; why don’t you use the ball you used in the tournament?’ I said fine. I picked up that ball and threw 12 strikes in the first game. It was all Steve’s call,” Charlton said.
Piroli, 57, tossed his fifth 300 in the last game of the Aliquippa Businessmen’s League at Sheffield Lanes in Aliquippa.
“I was around the pocket all night, but the last game all 12 were in the pocket and everything carried. I tugged one a hair in the ninth and almost left the 4-9 pins but a messenger took them out,” Piroli said.
Adams, 47, rolled his 300 in the last game of the Tenpin Travel League at Beaver Valley Bowl. This was his 34th 300 and his fourth 300 of the season.
“I was struggling the first two games. Fortunately, my teammates picked me up, and the last game I got lined up and I was able to help the team out. We won all three games and every win is big late in the season,” Adams said
In other action, Jeffrey Hredzak of Hopewell Township rolled a 297 in the Baden Men’s Classic League. Joe Tkach of Mercer rolled a 296 in the Monaca Community League.
Have a great summer.
