Very very pleased with our efforts all day in both matches never showing any quit and battling all day. Brian and Hunter scored all day but everyone bowled solid.
We are bowling well in Peterson’s as a team and individually but we have to get a lot better in Baker games…we will continue to practice and work on that.
