Rifle club wins two, possibe shoot off to end season

T his Whitehall Rifle Club kept pace with Galway by downing Fort Edward 982-965 and Hudson Falls 976-931. Both teams have two matches left and are likely to finish the regular season tied, each having lost to the other on the respective home ranges. If it does go that way, there will be a shoot off at the Hudson Falls Range two weeks after the end of the season.

At the Fort Edward match, John Hollister and Louie Pratt led the way with a pair of 198s. In the Hudson Falls match, it was Jason Pratt and Pete Steffan with a pair of 197s.

Also in the Hudson Falls match, 15 year old Joe DeLorme caught the league’s attention with a very good 192, just missing out on Whitehall’s top five. Joe’s sister, Malia, also shot well with 186.

This week Moreau pays a visit to Hollister Road to try their luck. Two years ago they knocked off Galway in the last match of the season because Galway was looking ahead to the shoot off. You can bet Whitehall will try not to make that mistake.
