Gohlke rolled games of 207, 207, 269, and 177 for an 860 total. Earning the 11-seed (out of 32 players), he dropped his first-round matchup to Logan Slavin of Lakeview, 175-169.
Dakota junior Jayden Denyes defeated Lake Shore sophomore Ben Augustitus, 247-217, in the championship match.
The Pilots were so close to having a few players reach the match play round. The 32nd qualifier rolled a 791 series. Senior Andrew Rusu finished 33rd with a 4-game total of 790. Seniors Salvatore Aiello and Alexander Thorn were just a few pins back at 788 and 787.
De La Salle will be back in action Thursday when it takes on the Pilots' JV-A team at Bowl One Lanes in Troy.
