HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — A bowler’s dream of a 300 game goes down the gutter thanks to a lane malfunction.

Troy Walker was competing at the 2013 Luci Bonneau Doubles tournament in Houston over the weekend, bowling the game of his life. Coming into his last frame, Walker was one strike from a perfect game after reeling off 11 consecutive strikes.

And that’s when disaster struck.

Just when the bowling ball was about to strike the pins on the 12th frame, the rack unexpectedly came down, stopping the ball dead in its tracks. Walker got one last shot at 300, but only knocked down seven pins on his last try, finishing with a 297.

“That was odd,” Walker said in a post-game interview, adding that it was probably his fault the rack came down early. Walker said he reset the wrong lane causing the rack to come down on him and his 300 game.

“Something to talk about, won’t forget that one,” Walker said.
