Thacker bowls highest game in league history

Rachel Thacker rolled the highest women’s game in the history of the Sunday Trios League at Romford’s City Pavilion at the weekend.

Thacker starred once again with a score of 234, beating the previously highest mark of 232 set by Becky Skinner nine years ago.

Mike Hayford (182.9) leads the men’s averages from Allan Park (182.0), while Phat Bs extended their lead at the top of the scratch competition table to eight points from Pinpals, with Lucky Three in third place.

Misfits lead the way in the handicap competition, from Pinball Wizards and Clappers.

High games: Mike Hayford 248, 206; Rachel Thacker 234; Martin Perry 214; Bobby Mitchell 214; Allan Park 213.

High series: Hayford 645; B Mitchell 589; Perry 573; Thacker 562; Paul Mitchell 556; Neil Emmons 543; Graham Head 532; Park 523; Richard Halls 509.
