|Saber boys bowlers keep on winning, knock off Camanche|
By Ross Eberhart
With the way things are going, the Central boys bowling team might want to be busy all season long.
Taking part in their third competition in four days, the Sabers won again, taking down area rival Camanche by just 15 pins (3,117-3,102).
It was the fourth-straight victory for the Central boys, who also took down Maquoketa and Bellevue in a triangular and won the 1A portion of the North Scott Invitational.
The difference in the dual came in the first round as the Sabers staked themselves to a 118-pin lead by posting the top-three scores.
Leading the way for Central was senior Alby Saliu, who bowled a team-best 268 in game one and followed it up with a 193 for a 461.
Two other Central bowlers - Derek Fox and Lucas Perdieu - finished within nine pins of Saliu.
Fox bowled a 236 in game one and followed it up with a 220 for a 456 series, while Perdieu started his night off with a 258 and added a 194 in game two for a 452.
Finishing right at 400 was sophomore Karson Smith, who bowled a 209 in game one and added a 191.
The only Saber to top his game one score was senior Allen Mumm, who followed up a 189 with a 202 in game two for a 391. Finishing things off for the Sabers was Lucas Thul, who bowled a (134-126) 260.
Trailing by 118 pins, Camanche gained five back in game one of the baker rotation, but Central answered with its own five-pin victory in game two.
The Indians took a big chunk out of the lead in game three as they bowled a 225 compared to a 176 for the Sabers.
Central, though, came back again and topped Camanche by 16 in game four.
Still holding an 82-pin lead, the Sabers appeared to be safely ahead, but Camanche made things interesting by bowling a 253 in game five. Central only bowled a 183, but the lead held, giving the Sabers a 12-pin win.
The Saber girls also took part in the meet, but ended up on the wrong end of a 2,699-2,449 decision against the Indians.
Just like in the boys dual, the meet was decided in round one as Camanche opened up a 228-pin advantage.
The Sabers had three bowlers finish with 300-series led by Shelby Carrier, who finished just a pin away from a 400 series.
The sophomore bowled a 188 in game one and then followed with an even better 211 in game two for a 399.
The Sabers' best game one score came from Veronica Weigandt, who bowled a 198 to start her night and then added a 178 for a 376.
Abbi Coble had a consistent night for the Sabers as she followed a 152 in game one with a 150 in game two for a 302.
Frances Coons added a (128-168) 296 for the Sabers, while Katie Burken finished things off with a (145-121) 266.
Central won three of the games in the baker rotation, but Camanche still produced a higher round two total (the Indians won their two games by a combined 61 pins, while the Sabers won their three by a combined by 39) to wrap up the victory.
