Bacon 798, Brown 300 at Mancuso Bowling Center

By Mike Pettinella

Lockport resident and Batavia native Paul Bacon continues to make his mark in the Mancuso Real Estate Monday Doubles League at Mancuso Bowling Center.

The 58-year-old right-hander averaged 220 in the league last season and is off to a hot start this season.

Earlier this week, he rolled games of 258, 276 and 264 for a 798 series, bowling with partner Brian Cline, on lanes 3-4.

Bacon spun 10 strikes in each of the first two games and strung the first nine strikes in the third game before leaving two pins on the first ball of the 10th frame. He missed the spare, and finished just two pins shy of his second 800 series. His other 800 -- 824 -- came in December 2004 at Brad Angelo Lanes in Lockport.

"My feet got a little quick in that last frame and I pulled the shot," said Bacon, who is employed as an operator at WestRock packaging facility in North Tonawanda. "Still, I'm pretty happy about that score."

Bacon said he used a 900 Global Eternity en route to his 29-strike effort.

In other action at Mancuso's, Attica's Mark Brown found perfection in the County Line Stone Friday Trios League with a 300 middle game on lanes 21-22. His other games were 200 and 234 for a 754 series.

Brown rolled a 300 in January in the same league.
