IT was another triple header week last week for Shoalhaven Strikers Juniors with Samual Berryman, Kieran Berkovic and Wolfe Sinclair-Thompson all sitting in the top position.
All are equal first this week with 27 points.
Samual played Wolfe last week and seemed a little pre-occupied and lost all three games and seven points with his games of 114, 135, and 107 to Wolfe’s games of 118, 137, and 143.
Kieran Berkovic also lost seven points and lost all three games of 110, 125 and 119 to Jayde Morris, who bowled fantastic games of 168, 151 and 161, which sent her up to fourth position on the ladder.
Morgan Murphy Knight won five points with his games of 95, 70 and 99.
Jayde bowled the highest game of the day with 168 and also bowled 90 pins over her average with a 480 series.
It will not be long before this young lady is in the top spot on the ladder.
There are still vacancies in this league, so to be part of the fun come along on Friday at 4.15pm.
In the Shoalhaven Junior Piranha League Levi Robinson continues to widen his lead on the ladder with another seven point win, giving him a total of 62 points.
Levi bowled games of 110, 124 and 112 against Jeremy Carrig, who bowled 123, 148 and 102.
His 148 game was the highest bowled on the day.
Lachlan Willis bowled against Alex Ramsey and showed that he is improving with his games of 81, 88 and 74.
Alex took the seven points when he bowled 120, 126 and 100.
The ladder this week has Levi well out in front with 62 points followed by Alex on 45, then Jeremy on 27 and Lachlan on 13.
The boys received some extra coaching after the league games had finished, which if put into practice next week, should see a big improvement in their pin fall.
The junior development group is a coaching clinic for children over seven-years-old and held every Friday at 5pm during school terms.
The cost is $6 per child for one hour of coaching and bowling fun.
The group gets to learn the skills needed to bowl strikes and not just roll a ball down a lane.
Coaching is conducted in a fun way where the children learn the skills of tenpin bowling to enable them to progress into one of the competitive and fun junior bowling leagues.
So come along and learn the sport of tenpin bowling and have fun with other children.
The skills these juniors are learning is showing more and more with their games improving each week, and they are also learning that attitude and sportsmanship are just as important as consistent scores and averages.
This week there was some fancy footwork, with the juniors learning the four step approach for ball delivery and bowling with only one bumper up.
So even though the overall scores were a bit lower than usual, the style and method they used was much better and their pin fall will improve greatly when they put these new skills into play.
Tom Carrig bowled a game of 70, Shea O’Sullivan bowled 63 and Robert Berkovic bowled 69.
Good luck and high scoring to all junior bowlers at Shoalhaven City Lanes.
