Summer League 2002 - Week 1 Report

5th May 2002

Monday night saw the start of the Summer Tenpin Bowling Leagues with the new computer animations causing much amusement amongst the bowlers.

The first match found Papa's Kids taking on Gutterlevel and, despite a few closely fought individual points, Gutterlevel managed a 15 to 5 point win, with new team member Dave McGillvray putting in a solid performance.

The other early session match pitted Gowks against Wasters with Ronnie Gray hitting the night's only 600 plus series and two 200 plus games for Gowks. Michael Dunnet made a good showing for Wasters with a 586 series but Gowks ended up winners with 12 points to 7.

In the final match Hitmen & Her played the vacancy scores team. Bowling against non-existent players can be a deceptively hard task but the team took it well in their stride with all the Hitmen hitting 500 plus scratch series' giving them an 18 to 2 point win.

Best performances of the night came from Roddy Bremner with a 538 scratch series and a 201 scratch game, Ronnie Gray with a 534 scratch series and 205 scratch game, and Ally Gray and Garry Ross with a 514 and a 507 scratch series respectively.

However, even with these taken into account, the bowling ran relatively smoothly.

Strange statistics from week 10 of the Monday Tenpin League include the number of splits gained and the relatively low scoring compared with previous weeks.  While many bowlers escaped with just a few splits, Hitmen & Her must have felt rather hard done by as they accumulated over a third of the total from the whole night.
