It’s uncommon to see the boys bowling team lose, let alone by a large margin.

Unfortunately, the Hornets did just that Saturday, Jan. 12, losing 24-6 to league-leading Owosso.

The Hornets dropped both Baker games, losing the combined pinfall 458-430.

Owosso now sits atop the Metro League firmly at 9-0, while Kearsley is in second at 7-2.

While the position was far from comfortable, the team had overcome the same 10-point deficit against Swartz Creek earlier in the month; it was certainly not out of the match.

However, Owosso dominated throughout the individual games, bowling more than 200 in seven of their individual games.

In the first set of individual games, junior Ethan Burke got the Hornets on the board with a 213-200 victory.

The Trojans battled back in the next game, surpassing freshman Gage Slagor by 35 pins.

Stepping up with a 258, senior Devin Smith beat his opponent by 13.

Kyle Langworthy, senior, was unable to win his match, falling 210-148.

Junior Lawson Boshaw took care of business at the anchor spot with a 202-183 triumph.

By earning a higher sum in the first set, Owosso placed itself 13 points ahead of Kearsley.

While the Trojans had clinched the game, they could not quench the spirit of the Hornet bowlers, who won three of the last five games.

To take home their second games, Burke toppled 195 pins, Smith threw a 219, and Boshaw rolled a 215.

Senior Nathan Maxwell lost his appearance 236-189, while Slagor and junior Rodney Baltosser dropped their showing 242-201.

The Trojans won the total pinfall 2,127 to the Hornets’ 2,039.

On Wednesday, Jan. 16, Kearsley takes on Linden at Grand Blanc Lanes.

The Hornets will get a much-needed chance to work out their issues against the Eagles, who have lost every match this season.
