Eastmont Lanes was the site for a showdown yesterday afternoon between 1st-place Eisenhower and 3rd-place Wenatchee…
Shortly into the first game, Wenatchee’s best bowler, Kylah Hankins, had to pull out because of back pain. That’s when Cami Carter stepped in and helped finish a 167 the pushed the Panthers past the Cadets 743-to-699.
Ike surged out to a 95-pin lead at one point in the second game, but Wenatchee clawed back behind a 213 from Kayla Musgrove and a 178 from Jaiden Thompson to win 791-to-774.
The Cadets won the two baker games, so the match came down to a total pin count, which Wenatchee won 1,800 to 1,751. The loss was Eisenhower’s first of the season. The Panthers improved to 4-and-2 with the win.
Meanwhile, just down the alley from Wenatchee and Ike, Eastmont was having no trouble winning its non-league match with Ellensburg 4-0. And at Lakebowl in Moses Lake, the Chiefs beat Davis 3-1 to jump into a 1st-place tie with Eisenhower at 4-and-1.
