Boys bowling improves to 11-0 in North Large standings

Clarence’s boys bowling team had a strong week last week, going 3-0 to raise its ECIC North League record to 11-0 in the process heading into Monday’s regular-season finale at 10-1 Starpoint.

The Red Devils entered the match at Brad Angelo’s Lanes having already secured at least a tie for the regular-season championship. A win at Starpoint will give Clarence the title outright.

Information about that match was not available at press time, however.

Clarence’s week started with a 6-1 win over Williamsville North on Jan. 30 at the Clarence Bowling Academy. North started strong with an 893 game for its only point of the match despite Clarence “A” team bowlers Nick Moran (223), Brady Pohlman (217) and Elliott Pohlman (203) keeping the game close. Elliott Pohlman added games of 203 and 233 for a 640 to lead the “A” squad.

James Swannie, meanwhile, paced Clarence’s “B” squad with his personal-best 651 series on games of 228, 211 and 202. Additional high games were shot by Jared Johnson (214), Ben Chamberland (208) and Owen Petty


The Red Devils kept their win streak intact the next afternoon by topping Williamsville East, 5-2.

Clarence’s “A” team averaged 210 per bowler, with Moran shooting a personal best 211-234-289-734 set, the first 700 set of his career. Adding to the “A” squad’s success were Elliott Pohlman (224-621 set) and Brady Pohlman (214-614 set).

Clarence’s “B” team, which lost out by two points, was paced by Swannie’s 240-636 set. Other high games were rolled by Jared Johnson (245) and Logan Moyer (216).

Clarence then completed its week by taking down Amherst at Classic Lanes, 7-0, to secure its third win in as many days. Brady Pohlman led the charge with his 259-661 set to raise his division-leading average to 208. Chamberland shot a 258-616 set to raise his average to 203, which was for fourth in the division as The Bee went to press.

Elliott Pohlman, on games of 211 and 215, raised his average to 205, good for second in the division.

Jared Johnson is currently fifth in the division with his 196 average.

Clarence will resume action on Valentine’s Day by taking part in the annual ECIC Roll-Offs at Airport Lanes, the first of two area postseason tournaments.
