CBS Boston

BROCKTON (CBS) – History was made in Brockton when Hakim Emmanuel bowled three consecutive perfect games.

Emmanuel, a 38-year-old MBTA inspector from Stoughton, bowled 36 strikes in a row to complete the rare 900 series.

He was bowling in the Thursday Night Patriots league at Westgate Lanes.

“I said wow, I got my first 300 game ever,” Emmanuel said of his first 12 strikes.

Then in game two, he got 12 more strikes.

“Another 300,” Emmanuel said laughing, “yay me.”

By game three the pins were quaking in fear as Emmanuel approached them.

“It felt good, focused, stayed in the game,” he said.

After eleven more strikes, there was just one ball between Hakim Emmanuel and history.

“The last ball, my hands were a little sweaty,” he said. “Just telling myself ‘I’m here, this could be it.’”
