Mid-Season Congestion At The Top
Bowling fun in 1956
South Glens Falls - The top seven teams in the Forever Young league are within 5½ points of each other after Thursday afternoon's Week 8 action at Pine Lanes.
The Gamblers lost their opener to the league-leading Yanks, then rebounded to a 3-1 victory behind anchor Phil Camp's 181-500 effort. The result closed the margin between first and second place to 2½. The Singers stayed in the runner-up spot by virtue of their 2-2 split against the Marauders. Hi-Lo climbed to within three with a 3-1 win against the vacancy, as Curt Williams led the way with 190-510.
Don Williams and partner Roy Brady are having trouble getting their act together for the Tomahawks. Williams blasted a season-high 650 on games of 242, 173 and 235 while Brady had his worst output of the year. The Tommies still managed a 3-1 triumph over the pesky Librarians duo.
The CC's captured the lone sweep of the day with a win over P+C. Chuck Boykin paced the whitewash with 209-574. Frosty + One welcomed rookie Patrick Scanlan to the fold and he certainly didn't disapppoint, throwing a trio of games in the 140s to pace a 3-1 nod over the Racy Retirees.
Carol Finkle was best in show on the distaff side with a 169 single, with Mary Tessino's 426 the high series.
