The UnbeWiiVables of Margaret Schweinhaut SC, Silver Spring, MD, soundly defeated the Happy Life of The Active Life, LaGrange, FL, in the final match up of the 2011 NSL Fall Wii bowling championship hosted by LeadingAge and sponsored by Aegis Therapies. Coach Karen Maxin’s team led by 64 pins after the first game and upped the count by 149 pins the second game to score a convincing victory. Stephan Hatos, the NSL MVB (Most Valuable Bowler), led the UnbeWiiVables with a 280 and a 259 pin count. The match featured lower than usual scores from the powerful teams as they battled in the NSL final played at a neutral site. Wii bowlers had to fight the pressure along with a totally different environment and the television crews taping the event as they struggled with concentration and finding proper lines and release points.
