Scott Trezise’s 801 series that featured a perfect game highlights this week’s high-score report from area centers.
Bowling in the Kays-Ponger-Uselton Guys & Dolls League at Treasure Lanes, Trezise — who entered the session with a 196 average — fired games of 300, 245 and 256 for a 213-over-average three-game set.
Trezise, who has been credited with eight perfect games certified by the United States Bowling Congress since 2000, has rolled previous 800-plus series in December (803 in 2000 and 814 in 2001).
One other perfect game was rolled during a week that featured a lower than normal amount of high scores, in part due to a number of leagues taking some time off because of the holidays.
Pat Ursomanno opened with a 300 game to jump-start a 690 series in the Friday Night Mixed League at Bowland Port Charlotte.
In the GLBT League at AMF Gulf Gate, Mark Waldrep strung 11 consecutive strikes before leaving a 4-5 split on his final delivery, forcing him to settle for a 298 in the opening game of a 772 series. Ironically, a final-ball 4-5 split concluded a 298 game for Mickie Donmeyer in the same center earlier in the month.
Bowland Port Charlotte was the site of three far-over-average series. Bruce Page posted a 163-over 742 series that included a 280 game in the Al Davis Memorial League, Mike Laurain had a 161-over 659 series in the Thursday Night Mixed League, and Matthew Patterson had a 148-over 670 set in the Friday Night Mixed League.
