Port Clinton's Redskin Bowlers traveled to Tri County Bowl in Woodville Friday and were swept by the Eagles, knocking the Redskin Boys out of first place in the Northern Ohio Bowling Conference.
The Redskins moved ahead during the first two team games by rolling games of 990-997 to the Eagles 982-982 to grab a 23 pin lead going into Baker.
The match was decided in Baker with the Eagles outscoring the Redskins 971-929 to win the match 2935 to 2916. Eastwood improves to 5-3 in conference play, Port Clinton drops to 8-2.
The Redskins Sean Black and Eastwood's Kyle Waynick, teammates on an after season tournament team, had their own shootout. Waynick rolled games of 243-236 for a 479 set while Black rolled 207-264 with the first 8 strikes the second game,for a 471 set. Caleb Conrad supported Sean with a 410 set,(210-200), and Kyle Radloff added 194-200.
"While I feel we have a very talented team with an outstanding 989 team average, they just don't have the competitive instinct to put teams away. We've lost 3 matches, by 1 pin, 11 pins, and now 19 pins, and we have literally made mistakes to give away each loss. It is discouraging, but it falls on me, and I need to find a way to correct that" said Coach Bob Black.
Eastwood's undefeated girls destroyed the Lady Redskins by 704 pins, 2729-2025. Eastwood rolled games of 877-935 to PC's 691-654 to sew up the match before Baker. Eastwood then won the Baker games 917-680.
Jessie Young led Eastwood with 194-240 and Kat Przybylski added 193-201. Samantha Stroupe rolled 171-190 for PC.
"To say our girls were disappointing is an understatement" said Coach Bob Black. "We were never in the match, and the lack of effort to be competitive against better teams is obvious. Losing a match by 700 pins is embarrassing. We have to discover a way to get them to focus on each shot and use their ability."
