Warriors yet to strike, but 'show promise' in loss to Tenpin City

THE Orange Warriors are still searching for their first win of the State Tenpin Bowling League after suffering their fourth loss on Sunday.

The Warriors went down to Tenpin City at Lidcombe 80.5-33.5.

It means the Warriors have gone through their opening four rounds without a win.

Tenpin City won the singles 28-10, but the Warriors hit back to win the doubles 21.5-16-5.

The Lidcombe side dominated the teams section 32-2 and then claimed the four bonus points for having the highest total pinfall.

Orange captain Jason Brown said it wasn’t all bad news for his side.

“Ron [Forbes] led the way again with a 213 average. Ross [Southwell] was also good with a 206 average,” Brown explained. 

“The rest were under 200.”

“Even though we were beaten, in some ways it was a bit of a turnaround for some of the guys. Our reserve, Jacob French, bowled a 198 average, which was good.

“We’ve got some promise.”

Orange will host its next game on April 27 against Gosford.

Brown said his team will be determined to come out on top on its home lanes.

“It’s a tough battle now. As long as we get better and better, that’s all we want,” he said.
