Rifle club wins pair of matches

Rifle Club wins two 

The Whitehall Rifle Club didn’t have a particularly good week, but it was good enough, as they downed visiting Fort Ann 973-951.

Most of the usually consistent shooters on the Whitehall team were a bit off but as so often happens, there was someone to pull them out. This week it was Jim McGinnis who shot well over his average to help secure the Whitehall win and keep the team’s chances alive. Jim and Pete Steffan were high shooters this week with a pair of 196s.

Jason Pratt was third on the team with 195 while Louie Pratt and Dick McMore finished out the top five with a pair of 193s. John Hollister, who is very often the top shooter in the league, finished this night with a 192.

The team was pleased to have two Junior Shooters make their first stab at the big leagues.  Melia and Joe Delorme gave it a try in this match, with 175 and 169 respective scores.

The Whitehall Rifle Club out-shot Reynolds Road, two weeks ago, 984-947, and finds itself in the same position it has been for the past few seasons – trailing Galway by one match at the mid-season point.

In week two of the 2013 season, Galway beat the locals 980-978.

Last year it was Hartford that knocked off Galway and the year before that it was Moreau that pulled off the upset. In both seasons, Whitehall and Galway had won their home matches against each other. Whitehall hopes to keep that trend intact, at least for this season.

In the match it was John Hollister who had the edge for the locals with another near perfect 199, while Jason Pratt and his father, Louie, had a pair of 198s. Pete Steffan continued his good shooting with a 197 while Jim McGinnis held the fifth spot with a 192.

This week all the marbles will be on the table when undefeated Galway pays Hollister Road a visit.  It is a must win match for Whitehall.
