Matthews outduels Stacy for bowling high series

Dave Matthews set the pace for the weekly high series honors in Sundowner League pin action and withstood a challenge from Mike Stacy on Monday night.

Matthews blasted the pins for games of 233, 244, and 279 to compile an excellent 756 series.

Stacy crushed the pins in Red River League competition but came up short as he posted a 748 total with a 255 game for the second high set. Stacy also rolled a 676 series in another league.

Kevin Stacy is learning from his father and has been scorching the pins lately. He rolled a great 267 high game, contributing toward a very nice 715 total.

Also breaking the 700 mark were T.J. Mooney 279-707/656 and Steve Dickinson 277-707/665.

Other nice scores for the men were Michael Conchola (256-690), Steve Zeplin (680), Richard Brotze (675), Abel Garcia (267-672), Duane Hayward (255-667), Ramsey Martinez (267-663), Garry Hatter Jr. (258-654), Larry Stroud (267), Ben Mooney (257), Terry Wash (254) and David Persilver (254).

Rebekah Martinez paced the women's scoring while also competing in Sundowner action.

She rolled games of 186, 198, and 227 for a 611 set and also posted a 584 in another league.

Carri Lee posted the second high score with a 237-601.

Lori Heil and Denise Gabrysch posted nice scores with 212-585 and 235-575, respectively.

Vera Cruz Restaurant bowlers for the week are Kevin Stacy (757) and Amanda Kern (735), both in the Sugar & Spice League.

The annual Texas USBC Open Tournament is initiating a handicap tournament this year based on a 245 average. This means scores will be very high compared to scratch scores in the past.

Three local bowlers took advantage of early participation with great scores rolled this past weekend.

Dave Matthews is currently in third place in Division I singles with an 820 series. He is also in 15th place in all events with a nine-game total of 2,253.

Tom Crowe is tied for seventh place with a 799 set in Division II and 20th in all events with a score of 2,246.

Joe Wittenburg is in fifth place in Division III with a singles set of 802.

Congratulations to them and good luck to other local bowlers scheduled to compete.
