Bill Cole tosses perfect game

April 7, 2012


                Bill Cole, participating in the Thursday Night Menís League at Marcin Bowl, rolled his third perfect game to record the high single in Sarnia 10 Ė Pin bowling action this week. Cole couldnít put anything together in his first two games but hit pay dirt in his final game. After eleven strikes in a row, his last delivery resulted in the 7 pin wobbling back and forth before finally falling over in slow motion to give him the 300. He was bowling on lanes 31 & 32, the same lanes where he bowled his second perfect game a couple years ago. He told me his first perfect game was the most memorable, not only because it was his first, but because it was rolled in the Ontario Provincial Tournament in Windsor in 2001.
