Canton South boys down Minerva

By Brian king The Press-News Published:

The boys bowling squad returned from their holiday break, but at the end of the Perry match, they might have wished they were still on it.

The Panthers held a 193 pin advantage after the individual games and like the girls squad, the boys could not inch back during the Baker System games. The final score of the contest was 2,767 to 2,521 in favor of the Panthers.

Andrew Scarpino had the hot hand for the Wildcats as he had the high series of the night at 391. He tossed a 203 in game one of the individual games and a 188 in game two. Also scoring for the red and grey were Colin Rohleder (150-180), Daneil Stout (181-194), Alex Clendenin (184-172) and Dominic Kail (143-194).

The boys looked to add a tally to the win column when they hosted the Minerva Lions on Jan. 9.

They did just that.

Scarpino fired a high series of 476 and helped the Wildcats get the win by downing the Lions by the score of 2,719 to 2,581. Scarpino rolled a 237 in game one of the individual games and a 239 in game two.

Also scoring for South were Kail (169-200), Rohleder (223-195), Stout (143), Clendenin (170-194) and Caleb Howard (171).

Each team took home two Baker System games with South controlling games one and three by the scores of 211-180 and 242-184. Minerva won games two and four by the counts of 202-173 and 160-152 but couldn't chip into the overall pin lead held by Canton South.

CS girls end week

with 0-2 mark

The Canton South girls bowling team returned from their holiday hiatus on Jan. 7 when they hosted the Perry Panthers.

The girls fell behind by 488 pins following the individual games and could not regroup during the Baker System games and dropped their first contest of the New Year by the final tally of 2,573 to 2,031.

Leading the way for the Cats in the individual games was Tara Gates, who fired a high series of 325. She rolled a 178 in game one and followed up with a 147 in game two. Also contributing to the stat sheet for South was Desiree Demeo (136-107), Tori Gates (145-159), Roxy Truax (133-127) and Brooke Milhoan (183-95).

The Baker System games were split even with each team tallying two wins. The downfall was that it did not bring the Cats any closer to the overall pin lead. South took games one and two by the counts of 160-158 and 170-168. Perry closed out the evening with two wins in games three and four by the scores of 169-142 and 180-149 to really add to their pin lead.

The girls looked to get back on the winning train on Jan. 9 when the team took on the Minerva Lions.

The Lions held a 120 pin lead following the individual games and cruised to a 2,209 to 2,091 win against the Wildcats.

Leading the way for the Cats was Milhoan, who tossed a high series of 394. She rolled a 228 in game one and a 166 in game two. Also scoring for the Cats were Tara Gates (170-184), Truax (131-127), Tori Gates (149-142), Heather Haynam (111) and Ashley Schar (100).

Each team won two Baker System games with South controlling the even games and Minerva taking the odd games. South won games two and four by the scores of 151-147 and 166-128 while Minerva took games one and three by the tallies of 161-135 and 145-131.

The boys bowling squad ends the week with an overall record of 4-6 while the girls own a record of 3-6. The Cats bowlers returned to the lanes on Jan. 14 when they traveled to Eastbury Lanes to take on the Timken Trojans. South was also in action on Jan. 15 when they hosted Alliance.

The teams will then enjoy eight days off before they return to action on Jan. 23 when they travel to the College Bowl to take on the McKinley Bulldogs. The match is slated to begin at 4 p.m.
