Aidan Lee also gets things rolling here as this strike blows the pins up as part of a 212 score in game two and a 552 overall series.
Spencer Pierpoint’s solid year on varsity continues as his shot does just enough to keep the 5 and 6 pins down for the strike. He ends the day with a 523 overall series.
Getting the nod to varsity in game two is Oliver Gardner, who gets the spare to boost his confidence. Later in the game, Gardner sends the pins flying for a strike. His first two games on varsity end with 164 and 165 scores.
Nate Taverna would provide most of the fireworks for Central. This shot in game one is dead center in the pocket for the strike as he ends game one with a 212 score. Taverna would get things going later, as he knocked this down for one of his 11 strikes in game three for a team-best score of 266. He ends the day with a 650 series.

Leading the way for the Huskies is Max Alexandrov as his strike shot cleared the pins off the map. Alexandrov leads the Huskies with a 494 overall series.
Holden Randall is faced with a 1-2-4-10, and he gets tricky, sending the front three flying into the 10-pin for the pickup. Randall would also be vital on first ball shots, as this one dunks the pins over like a wave and finishes the day with a 431 overall series.
However, it wouldn’t be enough as Central picks up their sixth consecutive win over the Huskies by a score of 2835-2149, moving to 9-1 on the season.
