Robinson Leads Area in a Week of High Rolling

Article excerpt

Mike Robinson eclipsed the 800 barrier for the first time in the

No Shows league at Plaza Lanes. Robinson rolled games of 280,

289 and 248 for an 817 series. The 7-pin cost the left-hander a

shot at the city record and the possibility of rolling the first

perfect series.

He left one in the second frame of the first game, another on

the 11th ball of the second game and two more in the eighth and

10th frames of the final game.

At one point, Robinson, 38, had 20 consecutive strikes which

stretched from the third frame of the first game through the

Hardin nailed the first two shots in the final frame before

nerves took over. After regaining his composure, the

right-hander knew the final shot was there for the 300 when he

released the ball. He also had games of 248 and 234 for a 782

series.

BROWN NOTCHES PERFECT GAME -- Ralph Brown bowled his first

perfect game last week in the Friday Night Live league at Cassat

Lanes. Brown got a break in the third frame when the ball

crossed over and carried the strike. With the rest of the shots

flush in the pocket, Brown was fine until the final shot when

nerves took over. He had to reach down to gain his composure

before the completion of the perfect game.

FERRIZZI PERFECT, TOO -- Chris Ferrizzi, one of the area's top

young bowlers who moved up from the junior leagues last year,

notched his first perfect game last week in the Knights of

Columbus league at Bowl America Southside. …
