On Monday, the Boys of the Big Blue traveled to Stone’s Lanes to face the St. Xavier Bombers. It was a close match throughout but Hamilton fell to St X 2594 – 2581. The individual games were closely contested with St X taking a 20 pin lead into Baker Games. Junior Brad Allen continued his recent hot streak with games of 238 & 198 for a 436 series. Junior Alex Deaton shot another 200+ game with a nice 211, while sophomore Michael Middleton topped 200 again with a 201 game. Junior Drew Shelton added a nice 188 game & sophomore Kellan Hampton contributed with a 185. St X extended their lead to 88 pins after the first two baker games, but the Big Blue rallied back with a nice game of 224. Unfortunately, Hamilton was only able to make up another 11 pins in the last baker game. It was a great effort & fight from the Big Blue and they look forward to our match against Ross on Wednesday & Sectional tournament next week.
