Port Clinton bowlers played host to Woodmore at Star Lanes at the Harbor Friday, Jan. 17, and emerged victorious in both matches.

The Lady Redskins, led by Alysia Zoeller’s 175-187, improved to 12-0 with a 2442-1996 win over Woodmore. Kassidy Mahler rolled games of 168-161, Reilly Wittman 156-171, Eryn Binder 139-172, and Sam Stroupe 166-145. Courtney Burner rolled 172-163 for the Wildcat Ladies and Emily Paul rolled 169-148.

“Our girls rebounded from a subpar performance yesterday with one of their better efforts today,” said Coach Black. “All the girls were pretty solid hitting the pocket and making spares. They rolled two 800 games and had 802 in Baker. That’s good bowling and after this tough last seven days they can rest.”
