"None of the teams bowled particularly well today, it was a really strange oil pattern. However we bowled well enough to hold off the teams that were behind us in the standings. I think beating two established teams in our conference with a first year team was a good accomplishment and it's a nice building block for next year.  We have nearly all our bowlers coming back and have commitments from some very good bowlers that will be joining us next year", commented Coach Tom Rathbun.

Nobody had a 500 series in the first round for the Raiders. High games were Donavon Derenzo 174, Matt Frisch 173, Damian Sullivan 167, Charlie Cusano 158, Shirley Glynn 149, Daniel McCoy 145, and Kendra Sweet 132.

The lack of scoring continued in the second round as once again, no Raider hit a 500. Some of the high games were Cusano 181, Sullivan and Derenzo had 179's, Frisch 172, Sydney Palmatier shot a 168, and Kendra Sweet hit a 142.

FMCC will next compete at Regionals to be held at Pin-O-Rama on Sunday, Feb. 19th.  The season will come to a conclusion at Nationals in Buffalo, March 2-4.
