McALESTER — By beating the Happy Rollers 3-1 on Tuesday, team Oops put some distance between itself and second-ranked Grease Lightning. Grease Lightning fell 3-1 to the Golden Girls, dropping to 55-37 and falling three points behind Oops.
Oops will play the Sassy Lassies this Tuesday, while Grease Lightning will play the Pink Ladies. Though the Pink Ladies rank third in the league, 12.5 points separate second and third, and with just eight weeks until the playoffs, it seems unlikely any team other than Oops or Grease Lightning will win the second half.
Verna Dean Ketchum and Marilyn Arbaugh rank first and second, respectively, in this league, both having already knocked down over 9,400 pins. Jean Craig of the Sassy Lassies rank thirds with 9,350.
