The Northwest Men’s League, which bowls Wednesday nights, is being hotly contested. Country Living Realty, Thunder Rolls and Tri-State Equipment are in a three-way tie atop the standings at 21-11 apiece.
Meanwhile, Craig Physical Therapy, Woody’s Outlaws, Napa Auto Parts, Bowling for Beer, Mathers Bar and Paulson Trucking are all sporting a season score of 18-14 or better.
On Thursday nights, team Misfits holds a dominant first place position in Premier Mixed Doubles. They have gone 24-8 in points so far, and have a team average of 70 pins above the next-best team.
Melodie’s Gold (17-15), Spoilers (16-16), Has Been Gonna B (16-16) and Pin Heads (16-16) are locked in a tight battle for second place.
The Friday Night Mixed Nuts league features another stacked top-half. Pick up Sticks has sole possession of the lead at 22-10, but Sandbaggers, Just 2 Quicks, RM Elect/Dry Creek and Vipers are all within two-and-a-half points.
Trevor Goodwin posted the high scratch series score across the leagues from last week, with 711.
