It doesn’t happen often. In fact, since La Sierra Lanes, East Quincy’s bowling alley, opened in 1976, it’s only happened a dozen times. Last Thursday, Tim Kelley became the 12th person to ever hit a perfect score of 300 at the East Quincy establishment.
“I really couldn’t tell you what I was thinking before I bowled that last strike,” said Kelley. “I just wanted to knock it down.”
Kelley has been teased by the prospect of a perfect game before. He previously bowled two games in which he scored 299, missing only the final strike. This last game, however, Kelley bowled the 12th strike for the perfect game.
