SOME excellent bowling was displayed by the Shoalhaven junior bowlers this week and some good high scoring games.
Kieran Berkovic still holds top position on 60 after a seven point win against the vacant team.
Kieran bowled games of 145, 175 and 138, his 175 game being the highest of the day until Wolfe Sinclair-Thompson bowled a 189 on his last game.

Morgan Murphy Knight managed to pick up two points against Samual.
His games were 84, 83 and 75 against the vacant team.
Wolfe bowled 58 pins over his average this week, and Jayde bowled four pins over her average.
The ladder at the end of this week sits at Kieran 60, Wolfe 58, Samual 51, Jayde 45 and Morgan 32.
There are still vacancies in this league, so to be part of the fun, come along on Fridays at 4.15pm.

The Piranha Ladder stands with Levi on 79, Alex on 75, Jeremy on 51 and Lachlan on 38.
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 skills these juniors are learning are 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.
The junior bowlers had lots of fun and learned some more new skills this week. They are now only using one bumper and there are not many gutter balls being bowled anymore.
Robert Berkovic bowled the highest game of 84 and Tom Carrig bowled a 67.
There were a few spares bowled and the boys are improving each week.
The bowlers all had a great time and really enjoy the challenge at the end of the class where they must aim for and hit the fluffy duck that hangs in front of the pins and they get a prize if they hit it.
Good luck and high scoring to all of the junior bowlers at Shoalhaven City Lanes.
