CORNING — The Elmira bowling team knew they faced a tough test against the Corning Hawks.
The Express were up to the task, with each of their bowlers shooting a 600-plus series as they beat Corning 4-1.
Corning was unbeaten on the year going in, and were 39-1 overall in terms of possible points this year.
“I am so proud of them,” Elmira coach Tim Crout said of his team. “Corning has an excellent team, I believe they were 39-1 going into this match. After losing the first game by 57 pints, we could have folded, but they remained focused and shot a 1,100 the second game, giving us momentum going into the third game, which was very crucial. They kept their focus and came through by shooting a 1,073 the third game.
“This is a huge win as Corning had beaten us 5-0 at Dixie. It will be a huge step moving forward to sectional play. Also hats off to Meghan Sturdevant from Corning, she shot a 279 the last game for Corning and honestly she deserved a 300, her 10 ball was perfect and left a solid 7 pin. Congrats to her, she also shot a 698 in which was high series for boys and girls.”
