Things just go interesting in the South Central Ohio League boys bowling standings.
Led by Aric France, the Clinton-Massie boys edged Hillsboro 2,503 to 2,423 Tuesday at Royal Z Lanes.
The win by the Falcons puts them in a first-place tie with the Indians with two losses. Wilmington is a game back with three losses.
The two teams will face off again Monday at Highland Lanes in Hillsboro along with McClain. The SCOL tournament is Feb. 9 at LeElla Lanes in Washington Court House.
The Clinton-Massie girls were defeated 2,180 to 1,211 by Hillsboro. Brittany Fry led CM with a 343 series. Emily Rager had 135, 89; Jennifer Callewaert had 112, 99; and Kylie Harvey finished with 82, 90.
Baker games were 92, 78 and 91.
For the CM boys, France had games of 204 and 266 for a 470 series.
But the Falcons led the Indians by just 17 pins going into the baker games.
“So it was definitely a nail-biter,” CM coach Shonda Marburger said.
Clinton-Massie had baker games of 180, 269 and 151 to pull out the win. The 269 was the baker game high this season for CMHS.
“Those boys portrayed the true definition of teamwork,” Marburger said.
