VERSAILLES – The Versailles Tigers traveled to Coldwater on Dec. 26 to bowl against the Ansonia Tigers.

“Holding a match the day after Christmas presents a challenge with schedule conflicts,” Versailles coach Tyler Phlipot said. “Three less experienced bowlers stepped up to compete for us in this match including Quayd (Pearson), Ayden (Moran) and Brandon (Bradley). Ansonia only presented with four bowlers.”

The Versailles Tigers defeated Ansonia 2,322-1,546. Leading the way for Versailles was Alex Groff (214, 185), Jacob Wening (168), Quayd Pearson (141), Ayden Moran (138), and Brandon Bradley (121).

“The boys were able to keep focus under the circumstances of bowling against an abbreviated Ansonia team. They did a great job,” Coach Phlipot said.

The following week on Saturday the Versailles boys traveled to Union City to bowl against the Coldwater Cavaliers. The Tigers were not able to come out ahead with a loss 2,712-2,596.

“There were opportunities for us to take the lead, but we were just not hitting our spare shots,” Coach Phlipot said.

Leading the way for the Tigers were Alex Groff (210), Kyle Cotner (202, 181), Jacob Wening (181) and Brody Hyre (212, 173).

“The boys pulled together well as a team during baker play, but the spare shots were not coming together as hoped,” Coach Phlipot said. “We will continue to practice these shots and build confidence in this aspect of our game.”

On Saturday another tough competition will be held at Minster versus the St. Henry Redskins.
