No bumpers No problem

SHOALHAVEN Strikers Juniors were on target last week and Wolfe Sinclare-Thompson retains his number one position with his win over Kieran Berkovic.  

Wolfe bowled some great games of 149, 166 and 86.

His 166 game being 32 pins over his average and the highest game of the day. Kieran’s games were 128, 124 and 152. 

Samual Berryman played the vacancy team but unfortunately his games of 117, 127 and 126 were not quite enough to take out the points. 

Jayde Morris bowled 130, 107 and 158 games which was 16 pins over her average, against Morgan Knight who bowled games scoring 96, 97 and 100.

The ladder at the end of this week sits at Wolfe 69.5,  Kieran 65.5, Samual 58,  Jayde 47 and Morgan 41. 

The league average for this week dropped drastically to 124 from only 151 last week. 

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 Jeremy Carrig was the star bowler last week with his high game of 133 and his others of 123 and 95.

Unfortunately they were not enough to gain him the points over his opponent, Levi Robinson, who bowled 104, 127 and 91 but won with his handicap scores.  Alex Ramsey’s opponent was absent this week and Alex bowled games of 102, 111 and 106 and he took the full seven points.  

Pin fall was much higher this week and all the boys bowled great. 

The league average score this week is 110 up from 105 last week. 

The Piranha Ladder stands with Levi on 93, Alex on 82, Jeremy on 51 and Lachlan on 45.

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.

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. 

The junior development bowlers had a great time this week.

They bowled with no bumpers at all and Tom Carrig bowled a strike and a game of 54. 

Robert Berkovic bowled a 62 game with quite a few spares. 

Even though the pin fall was low, the bowlers were excited that they are improving enough not to require bumpers and they all had a great time. 

Their game scores will improve week by week as the gain more confidence and skills.

Good luck and high scoring to all of the junior bowlers at Shoalhaven City Lanes
