By  | 

By Coach Godley

    After almost two weeks off due to their scheduling and Mardi Gras week, Central High Boys Bowling (7-1) continued their momentum on Monday (3-10-14) defeating Scotlandville (5-4) to remain on top of the District BR 5A (North) with 2-0 district record.
    Central came out swinging in Game 1 and took an early lead in the match.  The Wildcats took a 6-2 lead after Game 1 behind Dylan Ringo’s (Freshman) 254, Jacob Garretson’s (Junior/Captain) 212, and Sean Murphy’s (Senior) 207.  In fact, Central never trailed in Game 1 cruising to a 1074 to 1016 Total Pin lead.  Game 2 was more of the same as Scotlandville bowled a good game in Game 2, but Central bowled just a little better.  The Wildcats would win Game 2 by the score of 5-3 thanks to some solid late frame bowling by Murphy and Garretson.  The two Wildcats would punch out the 10th Frame with three strikes to help Central to a 1012-959 Total Pin win.  Murphy would finish with a 222 and Garretson would chip in a 215.  Central would take an 11-5 (and a 111 Total Pin) lead into Game 3.
    The Wildcats would put the finishing touches on the Hornets by winning Game 3 5-3 and 1147-1047.  With the match never truly in doubt, Murphy continued his hot bowling with a 257 in the Final Game.  Overall, the Wildcats won the match 19-8 and 3233-3022 Total Pins.  Murphy would lead the team in series with a 686, followed by Garretson with a 618 and Ringo’s 611.  Next up, Central has their eyes squarely on district rival Zachary (2-7), whom Central has beat four times in a row, dating back to the 2012 season.  On Wednesday (3-12-14) at All Star Lanes at 3:15, the Wildcats look to claim their second straight District Championship.
