Any perfect game in bowling comes down to that last frame. Those final 10 pins - and a chance at a 300 - were staring down Collin Tobin this past Sunday at Antelope Lanes in Prescott Valley.

"I was shaking," he admitted.

Tobin, only 17, completed the perfect game with a final strike during play in the Junior/Adult league. After the last pin fell, his mind "went blank."

"I was doubting myself, but I kept focusing and just did it," Tobin said Wednesday night, during a brief break from his job at Antelope.

His perfecto is one of only five by junior bowlers who have rolled a 300 game over the past 18 years at Antelope Lanes. He joins Justin Vadnais, Nick Fisher, Tiffany Chi and Michael Roe.

Tobin, who has been bowling for nine years, says he'll continue his Sunday league play until the summer is over, at which time he'll switch to another Sunday night league.
