Glenn Mason had the hot hand during Sundowner League play to grab the weekly high series honors.
Mason was very consistent, with only one miss in the series, to record games of 247, 233 and 255 for a 735 total. His only miss came in the second game.
Bobby Mowles was just as consistent in the Sugar & Spice League to post three error-free games of 246, 235 and 235 for a very nice 716 set.
Mark Svatek was the third bowler to break the 700 mark with a very nice 253 game contributing toward a 713.
Other scores of note for the men were Todd Pfuhl (265-696), Les Fuhrman (254-695), Steve Dickinson (259-685), Raymond Norman (258-684), Abel Garcia (255-680/277-654), Steve Zeplin (257-678), Jay Rhymer (674), T.J. Mooney (248-673), Tom Crowe (672), Danny Reissig (664), Chris Kurtz (256-659), Kenny Schupbach (658), Mike Stacy (649), Bill Jackson (267), John Cooper (266), Rusty Cooper (260), Victor Thomas (256), Dave Matthews (254) and Abraham Flores (247).
Christine Speer bowled an excellent middle game during Sugar & Spice competition that propelled her to the women's high series.
She posted games of 174, 253 and 201 for a very nice 628 series. It was the only 600 set for the women this week.
Sharon Guinn rolled a nice 230 high game, which contributed toward a 589 total.
Jessica Thomas, with a 224-587, and Ida Caballero, with a 574, were other nice scores.
Congratulations to Steve Dickinson for breaking the bank at Century Lanes last week.

The second semifinal PBA League match between the Philadelphia Hitmen and the Silver Lake Splitters will be broadcast at noon on ESPN.
Last Sunday's first semifinal match between LAX and last year's defending champion, New York City WTT Kingpins, had plenty of excitement.
LAX has International experience with Jason Belmonte (Australia), Andres Gomez (Columbia), Mika Koivuniemi (Finland) and T.J. Tackett and Parker Bohn III (USA). The NYC WTT Kingpins' roster members were Pete Weber, Scott Norton, John Szczerbinski, Jake Peters and Stuart Williams (England).
The format allows 1 point each for singles, doubles and trio competition and 3 points for the five-man team Baker system event.
Belmonte defeated Weber for the first time on television 234-208 to win the singles point. The LAX duo of Kioivunemi and Bohn III almost reached perfection with a 299 game to defeat Szczerbinski-Weber.
The lefthander Norton struck out in the 10th frame to win 249-235 for a much-needed point for NYC Kingpins in the trio match.
In a very close team match, Belmonte left and picked up the 3-10-4-7 split in the ninth frame to salvage the match by leaving Bohn III with needing only a mark in the 10th frame. Parker struck out for a 218-204 team win and a 5-1 point victory.
