After a long day, the Colonia High school boys bowling team tied the Carteret Ramblers. After the first two games, things did not look good for the Patriots. But after a hard fight, the tie ended up with a tie to the Ramblers. The team really came together and fought hard for the win. The energy that they were giving off filled the bowling alley.

After the first game, the Ramblers had the edge over the Patriots defeating them by 4 pins. Colonia senior, Brandon Wilczynski, had the high game of 193 among the Patriots. But even with that game, it still was not enough to take home the first game. Joseph Jansen of Carteret scored the highest game between the schools scoring 201.

The conclusion of the second game was another Rambler victory of only 15 pins. Ryan Soto, sophomore, held a strong game scoring a 196. Unfortunately that was no enough to match Llyod Padmore of Carteret scoring a 222. Things after the third game did not look good for the Patriots.

The boys’ team came together to get their heads straight and focus on the win. As the game began, junior Jason Duczeminskyj kept the team pumped. Jason, along with the rest of the team, was cheering and yelling despite the outcome of the first two games.

As the final game concludes, the Colonia Patriots come out with the victory defeating the Ramblers by 25 pins. The Patriots were trailing 2-1 and needed to have the higher total pin count in order to tie. Luckily the Patriots won the total pin count 2,438-2,421, only a difference of 17 pins.

With the energy going into the third game and rallying everyone up, the Patriots can say the energy is what brings them to the top.
