Bowling falls 26-4 and 25-5 in a dominant performance from FHN

This Wednesday, the Ranger bowling team kicked off its season against rival Forest Hills Northern. The Huskies are always a tough match, so for the Rangers to start their season off with such a difficult opponent is a big challenge.

FHC went on to lose both matches, with the girls losing 26-4 and the boys falling 25-5.

Right out of the gate, both the girls and boys teams came out slow. Pretty early into the game, FHN scoring got out of hand and a Ranger comeback became unlikely. Inconsistent shots from the Rangers led to some poor scores; however, as the game progressed, scores began to pick up. Junior Ben Kastner started to find his shot in the last few frames. For Ben, these quality shots showed him he can bowl really well, but there is obviously room for improvement.

With 12 bowlers on the boys team, playing time isn’t simply handed out for the varsity team. Wednesday, the lineup consisted of the junior quartet of Alex Souza, Ryan Andrews, Shane Hubble, and Ben Kastner. The newcomers and veterans of the team will look to cement their place in the starting lineup with strong performances in future matches.

Next up for the bowling team is a matchup against the Northview Wildcats, who are another solid conference opponent. The match will take place next Monday in the Rangers’ first home match of the season at Eastbrook Lanes.
