BOWLING: Simpson rolls first 300 game of season

RICHMOND — Brandon Simpson bowled the first 300 game of the 2013-14 season at Galaxy with a perfect score in the Galaxy Classic League on Monday. His gem was part of a 745 series, which was the high series for the week.

This was actually Simpson’s second 300 game of the day as he had bowled a 300 game while practicing before league play started. Of course, games rolled outside of sanctioned league play are not recognized by the United States Bowling Congress.

Simpson bowled two sanctioned 300 games during the 2011-12 season and just missed perfection last season with a 299 game.

Simpson’s 228 average in the Galaxy Classic League last season topped the Galaxy leaderboard.
