Port Clinton girls 9-0 in bowling

The Port Clinton Lady Redskin bowlers advanced to 8-0 in Northern Ohio Bowling Conference action at Heritage Recreation Center in Tiffin on Saturday, 9-0 overall.

The Lady Skins rolled a 2350 score to the Lady Tornadoes 1762.

Reilly Wittman led the Redskins with 187-209 for a 396 set. Eryn Binder continued her success bowling 172-159 for 331. Sam Stroupe rolled 166, Kassidy Mahler a 166 and Jozlyn Seamon a 158.

“We took a step back with our scores and focus today, especially in baker,” said Coach Bob Black. “We had a big rivalry match Thursday, an outstanding performance on a difficult playing condition yesterday and were sort of flat today. With tournaments coming, we cannot allow ourselves to lose focus during competition. Reilly has recovered and is bowling well again.”

The Tornado Boys defeated the Redskins by a 2478-2292 count. Kordell Blankenship rolled 162-181 to lead the Redskins with 343. Shelby Radloff rolled 183 for a 315 set. Blaise Hoffman 177 for 314 and Alex Camerato 150-153 for 303. Cameron Bice had a 158 game.

“The boys also slipped today,” said Coach Black. “Being young and inexperienced, they have to learn how to bring their best effort every time they bowl, practice or compete. Hanging their heads and wishing doesn’t get it done, consistent shot-making does. Shelby Radloff has been a surprise, his average 155 is up almost 40 pins from last year.”

The Redskins host Edison at 4 p.m. Tuesday at Star Lanes at the Harbor. Thursday they host Gibsonburg at 4 p.m. Saturday, January 24, the Redskins Tournament will take place at 9 a.m. There will be a full field of 48 high school teams competing in the tournament.
