Murphy rolls 811 series at Viking Lanes

Print Article

SOUTH BELOIT - It wasn't like Mike Murphy had never rolled an 800 series. In the 2016 Beloit Daily News Holiday Tournament, he started off with an 823 (255, 279, 289).

But the Roscoe resident still wanted to roll one in league play.

Mission accomplished.

Bowling in the LeVelle Open League on Tuesday night at Viking Lanes, Murphy rolled games of 290, 275 and 246 for an 811.

"I was pretty excited to get my first in league," Murphy said.

There weren't any indications of a milestone night while he was warming up.

"I wasn't throwing a good ball at all, but I moved right a little and slowed down," he said. "Once I got going I got locked in and didn't have to move much at all."

Murphy, 22, was throwing a King Pin ball by Brunswick.

"I've had it about two months, but I actually got it re-drilled by Trevor (Williams) recently and I've been averaging a little over 700 since then," Murphy said.

He bowls in two leagues at Viking with a high average of 232 on Thursday.

Murphy rolled a spare in his first game Tuesday and then struck out. He also had the front six strikes in game two.

"I was scoring well and after that second game I started thinking an 800 was realistic," Murphy said. "I was really hoping for a little higher one, but I'll take it."

Murphy bowls on the Viking Lanes team.
