Ugh, Wednesday I went 211, 226 (opened in the 10th too), and 140. Yup, utter collapse in the last game. We went 3-1 to improve to 3-5

Yeah. I would be ever so happy to have the front 2 in that triplicate, let alone the last one as well.

Nice! And it’s a decent triplicate at that, not like you shot 130 each game.
I don’t think I’ve even had matching scores in games 1 and 2, let alone come close to a triplicate.
