Rockpile – 4-8-2015

Several roll-offs will be bowled this week as we are coming to the end of half or fourth quarter action.

On the Thursday Nite Ladies league, “Melby’s” won the last quarter and will face “Clear Lake Storage” this Thursday night for the yearly championship. On the Wednesday Nite Ladies league, Family ChiroCare will have a shoot-out with the M&M Bar for the yearly bragging rights. Several other leagues will determine who will fight it out for the end of the year championships!!!

On the Thursday Nite Ladies League, Obermueller Trucking and Connie’s Catering had a small “marathon” going in their last game. In the second and third frame all four bowlers threw strikes to have a pretty amazing 16 strikes in a row. Like one gal said, “Pretty good bowling for the Rockpile”!! Nice job ladies!!

We had another 9-pin tournament “900” rolled Saturday afternoon. Mike Finke from River Falls bowled a 913 series. Finke bowls on a league at Strikers in Baldwin.

How about our amazing Badgers??? Upsetting Kentucky was awesome Saturday night. Now on to the National Championship against Duke Monday night. I am predicting that our Badgers will outlast Duke by a score of 72-69. (I wrote this column Monday morning for the Tuesday edition of the Tribune Press Reporter). GO BADGERS!!!

The Brew Crew also started Monday afternoon with their home opener against Colorado. Hopefully they will have a successful season!!
