Astro Lanes in Madison Heights was host to the match between the Oxford Wildcats and the Birmingham United bowling teams. The boys varsity and junior varsity teams faced off on Thursday night and both rolled to victories.
The varsity team continued to struggle in baker games and fell behind 8 to 2 in points. The team then focused and turned up the heat on Birmingham in match play. Leading the way was senior captain Blake Denning who rolled 242 and 224; junior Jason Paslean had scores of 237 and 215. Also bowling very well were juniors Zander Brown (207), Tommy Mace (217 and190) and Cameron Lantzy (232). The Wildcats won 8 of 10 matches and won the match, 20 to 10.
“We have to fix our baker performances and I know we will,” ‘Cat coach Claude “Junior” Lafnear said. “This was a gut check match for us and I think the team responded well after falling behind. Once we got rolling we bowled very well but we have to get out of the gate better. This is a good team and I believe it will continue to improve.”
The JV team won its match, 28 to 2. Freshmen Tegan Neale tossed 200 and 201 to lead the way.
