Bowling: Brother Martin’s shutout streak ends in victory over Shaw
Archbishop Shaw did something Thursday that none of Brother Martin’s first three opponents on the bowling lanes could do – win a match.
The Crusaders still rolled to a 23-4 victory over the Eagles at Colonial Lanes in Harahan. Brother Martin had won its first three matches by a combined 81-0.
Shaw won all three matches at the No. 1 slot and scored one victory at No. 2, but the Crusaders dominated in the middle and bottom of the lineup on their way to a 3,598 team series.
Will Oertling rolled a 725 series on games of 243-235-247. Jonathan Fernandez had a 694 on games of 213-236-245, while Cody Schaffer turned in a 691 set that included a 266 final game.
Cadence Chesterman led Shaw with a 610 series, including a 226 final game.
On Monday, Brother Martin takes on Bonnabel at AMF All Star Lanes in Kenner while Shaw plays host to Holy Cross at Westside.
