Hoosick Falls remains perfect on lanes
SCHAGHTICOKE, N.Y. — The Hoosick Falls bowling team won their third match of the season by the score of 4-0. Hoosick Falls had a match total of 3,554 to Hoosic Valley's match total of 3,202.
Kyla Day led the Panthers with a 234 high game and 640 series. Josh McCart 217-610, Jon Bossoni 226-602, A.J. Hurlburt 223-571, Tyler Lindsey 212-570, and Jennifer Sargood 196-561 also rolled up good scores for Hoosick Falls.
"The team bowled very well on tricky lane conditions and were able to adjust as they broke down in the second game. In the third game, we got a little careless and missed too many spares towards the end of the game and were lucky to pull out the win. Overall, it was a great victory over our arch rival in the Southern Division of the Adirondack League. This was our biggest challenge of the young season so far this year," said Hoosick coach Bob Lang.
