Danny Reissig recaptured some of his striking power from a few years back to produce the top score for the week.
Reissig has always had a smooth swing but in recent times his consistency has been lacking to produce big games. Last week during Sundowner League action, he bowled games of 245, 277, and 222 to finish with a great 744 series.
Velocity is the name of the game for left-hander Steve Zeplin, and last week during Red River League, he used it to his advantage.
Zeplin was able to over come the slow heads (first 15 feet of the lane) to crunch the pins for games of 230, 279, and 229 for an excellent 738 set for second high. A 9-pin spare in the fourth frame was the only non-strike frame in his 279 game.
Another bowler who has speed on his delivery is T.J. Mooney and he complemented teammate Zeplin in the second game with a 267 score of his own. The big game con tributed toward a 692 set to the recently crowned city champion.
Mooney also rolled a 663 series in another league.
Other scores of note for the men were Bruce Hammack (265-687), Kevin Stacy (654), and Mike Stacy (651).
Michelle Bonuz also used the Sundowner League to reclaim past bowling glory with a very good set to lead the women's scoring for the week.
Bonuz had a couple of open frames in the first game to end with a 184 game. She was able to string strikes the last two games to finish with scores of 236, and 226 for a very nice 646 series.
Competing in the Sugar & Spice League, Lori Heil and Christine Speer also broke the 600 mark.
Heil produced a 222 high game on her way to a 609 total and Speer rolled a very impressive 251 final game on her way to a 606.
Also scoring well were Rebekah Martinez 225-592 and Jessica Thomas with a 583 set.
Vera Cruz Restaurant bowlers for the week are Danny Reissig 771 and Michelle Bonuz 736, both from the Sundowner League.
