A perfect 300 game for Dillon

Twice before, Greg Dillon has come within a shave of bowling 300, only to fall short by 3 pins in the final frame.

On Monday night, playing for the High Tide team in the Monday Social Fours League, Dillon finally got his perfect game, but not without a little torment from the last throw.  

Dillon had bowled right into the pocket for strikes 11 times in a row. As the game progressed and his score grew, other members of the league quieted down and let Dillon focus. Excited and nervous, Dillon did his best to oblige.  

“I was pretty zoned in, wasn’t listening to anybody,” he said.

His last ball wasn’t like the others. A “Brooklyn strike,” it crossed in front of the head pin and hit the opposite side of the pocket but took down all the pins anyway.

“I threw a really bad bowl, so it was kind of lucky.”

Dillon, who delivers dairy goods for a job, didn’t get to celebrate. 

“Wish I could have,” he said. “I had to work at 5 the next morning. I just went home and went to bed.”
