Dwayne Hanna wasn’t perfect in his second game Monday night at Canoga Park Bowl, but he wasn’t far off.
Dwayne, a strong-armed righthander, crushed a 275, raising his personal best by six pins.
It was all part of a sizzling 708 series (247-275-186). He had 10 strikes in his second game, opening with five strikes.
Dwayne bemoaned the fact that he misfired on his strike ball in the sixth frame.
“I didn’t know how many strikes I had in a row [at the start] and then I looked up and saw I had five. Then I threw it too hard,” said Dwayne, a 45-year-old Encino resident.
After converting the four-pin spare, Dwayne rattled off five more strikes before ending his game with a nine count on his final shot in the 10th frame.
Dwayne’s improvement has coincided with his joining his present team, which includes Bob Adams, Marsha Martinez and super elite bowler Johnnie Englehart, who smoked his 53rd perfect game in March.
Asked when he might roll his first 300, Dwayne said: “Pretty soon I hope. I just want to build up to it slowly.”
