(This report covers the scores from the week of Sept. 25-30 as bowled at Black Oak Lanes.)

Morning Roller bowler Shirley Parades was perfect on Sept. 25.

Not perfect with strikes, but perfect picking up spares.

Parades rolled a rare all-spare game and finished with a 187.

The high-game for the men was shared by Robert Porovich (MondayNevada) and Trinii Mercado, Jr. (Gamblers Getaway) with games of 267. But right on their heels with games of 266 was Bill Murphy (Jokers Wild) and Dave Rossi (Umchu Full House).

The high-series belong to Porovich with the only 700 series for this report - a whopping 779. Yes, another near miss of that elusive 800 series.

The Women's high-game belongs to Muffy Breaux (Jokers Wild) with a 244 game, which was also 87 pins over her average. The high-series goes to Amanda Klaahsen (Umchu Full House), who rolled a 592.

Zackery Kuhl was the youth star, rolling 50/97 pins over his average with a 187/508.
