NORTH ARLINGTON, NJ - It was a tough day against a talented Wallington bowling team for Hasbrouck Heights.
Wallington started out with a 717 series to beat the Aviators by 141 pins, which set the tone for the rest of the matches.
Coach Dave Rispoli looked for the positive in the defeat, to Wallington, who currently sits in third in the league standings.
"Damiano (DeCandia) had a great start today," Rispoli stated. "He started right where he left off. His 37 pins over average helped us bowl a solid 576 game, three pins over our average. Sean started hot bowling four strikes in a row. Damiano ended hot rolling 3 strikes in a row, but it wasn't nearly enough to catch a very strong Wallington team.
"Wallington tapered off and gave us a chance the second and third games, but we just didn't have it today. The boys had their moments," Rispoli continued. "They tried but just couldn't pull off the upset."
"It was a great day for making splits," Rispoli said "Damiano made the 5-10 split. Sean (Reyes) made the 3-10 and the even more difficult 6-7-10 split.
"It's really nice to see Damiano understanding the game and consistently bowling above his average," Rispoli said. "He knew he needed marks in both the 9th and 10th frames the last two games to be above his average. He stepped up and pulled it off both times."
