HIGH POINT TEEN BOWLS 299 GAME
HIGH POINT — A High Point teen fell one pin short of bowling a perfect game during a local youth league match on Saturday.
Patrick Feeney, 14, bowled a 299, making 11 consecutive strikes before making a nine on his last roll in the 10th frame. Patrick bowls in the Saturday Superstar league at High Point Bowling Center.
It was his last game in a three-game series, which followed scores of 190 and 214 for a total score of 703. His average is 169.
A freshman at High Point Central High School, Patrick is the son of Joe and Michele Feeney of High Point.
HPU MEN FALL 4-1 TO ELON
HIGH POINT — The High Point University men’s soccer team fell at home to No. 23 Elon 4-1 on Saturday night in front of a record crowd of 1,527 at Vert Stadium. Freshman Brandon Sloan scored his first collegiate goal in the game for the Panthers.
“I was pleased with how we started the game and played in the first half, unfortunately we were unable to carry that quality through the entire 90 minutes,” HPU head coach Dustin Fonder said. “We had great energy in the first half. We had two chances we couldn’t convert and they scored on two of their four shots. Elon is a very good team. Darren Powell always does a great job getting them ready to play and they were more ready than we were tonight.”
High Point fell to 2-5-1. Elon improves to 7-1-1.
The Panthers return to conference play this week with a home game against Liberty on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
SEUSS MAKES IT TWO IN A ROW AT CARAWAY
ASHEBORO — Andy Seuss found himself in familiar territory on Saturday night — Victory Lane at Caraway Speedway.
Nearly three weeks after winning at the .455-mile oval for the first time since Oct. 2011, Seuss was right back there after winning the Zooland 150. It was the Hampstead, N.H., driver’s eighth win at the track.
Second-place finisher George Brunnhoelzl III — the career leader with 20 Southern Modified victories — extended his lead in the point standings to 30 over Kyle Ebersole with just two races remaining. Brunnhoelzl is looking for his third straight tour title and fourth overall. John Smith matched his season-best finish of third, while J.R. Bertuccio and Jason Myers finished fourth and fifth, respectively. Danny Bohn, Bryan Dauzat, Burt Myers, Gary Putnam and Mike Norman completed the top 10. Earlier in the day, Burt Myers won his second consecutive Coors Light Pole Award and 26th of his career to extend his career mark in that category.
