Two perfect games and five 11-in-a-row awards highlight this week's high-score report from bowling centers in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte Counties.
David Donaldson blasted a 300 game in the middle of a 784 series in the Beef O'Brady's/Parquette Insurance League at Treasure Lanes in Port Charlotte.
The other perfect game was posted by Brad Taylor, who turned the trick during a recent session of the Eartech Mixed League at AMF Bradenton Lanes.
David Larry fell one pin short of perfection, settling for a 299 game in the Guys & Dolls League at Treasure Lanes, and Jimmy Bruns also earned 11-in-a-row honors with a 297 game in the Gorman & Avare Enterprises Mixed League at AMF Venice.
Two area bowlers had the first 11 in a row, only to suffer a final-ball 5-count for games of 295. Wayne Carr's 295 concluded a 720 series in the Tuesday Men's League at Treasure Lanes, and Tom Evasick had a 295 game in the Jeffcoat Blueprinting League at AMF Bradenton.
The other 11-in-a-row game was a 290 turned in by Kevin Reichenbach in the Environmental A/C League at AMF Gulf Gate, and it was the second consecutive week that he blasted a 290 score in the same league.
In other notable accomplishments, Judy Fessenden rolled a 102-over-average 266 game in the Midseason Mixed League at Englewood Bowl, and Joe Poirier had a 225 triplicate series in the Golden Age Mixed League at Bowland Port Charlotte.
