It was a successful weekend for the boys bowling team, beating Clio 16-14, blanking Fenton 30-0, and taking third overall in the Lila Furnish Classic.

The Hornets played Clio and Fenton at Holly Lanes on Saturday, Jan. 5, while they competed in the tournament in Owosso at the Capitol Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 6.

Clio

Facing the Mustangs, the Hornets looked to take sole possession of second place in the Metro League.

As they dropped both Baker games and were outscored 434-365, the Hornets fell behind 10-0 from the start.

However, Clio couldn’t keep the team from buzzing.

Key performances from senior Kyle Langworthy, who earned pinfalls of 214 and 221 in his games, and freshman Gage Slagor, who bowled a 186 and a 212, helped the Hornets squeak a narrow 16-14 victory.

The match was decided by the combined pinfall, which stood at 1,878-1,785 in favor of Kearsley.

Fenton

The Tigers were out of the match from the start.

Winning both Bakers and outscoring Fenton by 102 pins, the Hornets took an easy 10-0 lead on their league opponent.

In the first set of individual games, junior Lawson Boshaw stepped up with a 247-pin performance, while Langworthy and Slagor marked scores of 245 and 224.

In the second set, Boshaw and Slagor each knocked over 225 pins.

With a final pinfall of 2,424-1,870, the Hornets blanked the Tigers 30-0.

Lila Furnish Classic

On Sunday, the team would not rest as it played in the Lila Furnish Classic.

In the qualifying round, the Hornets played 12 Bakers, toppling 2,227 pins in total.

This was good enough for third place, setting up a showdown with Hartland in eliminations.

Against the Eagles, the team scored totals of 195 and 171.

With a 366-326 victory, the team flew on to face Sturgis.

Unfortunately, the Trojans would dampen The Hive’s hopes in the round of eight, surpassing the Hornets by a margin of 449-302.

With a record of 7-1, the Hornets’ next match will be against Owosso on Saturday, Jan. 12.

The Trojans sit atop the league with a perfect 8-0 record, while Kearsley is a match behind in second.
