The seniors may have had a slight in advantage inasmuch as the match was played "at home."

Plus there was the fact that that The Marvin residents had been practicing their bowling skills all morning before the opposing team arrived.

The face off – seniors who reside at The Marvin versus members of the Norwalk Police force – was serious despite the deceptively casual atmosphere of the lounge.  

Complete with comfy sofas, a piano and a parakeet in its cage, the lounge at The Marvin was welcoming, but the competition quickly became intense.

Cheering on both the police and the seniors were the three- and four-year-olds from The Marvin Children's Center. 

Each time the police chief Kulhawik took his turn in hopes of throwing a strike, the children chanted, "Go, Chief!"

In addition to Chief Thomas Kulhawik, other members of the NPD bowling team were Deputy Chief Susan Zecca, Deputy Chief David P. Wrinn, Officer Hector Delgado and Sgt. Thomas Fern.

In the end, even Chief Kulhawik was no match for Marvin residents Kris Redin and Ed Fusci, who had the highest score of the day.

According to a chat with 99-year-old Elizabeth, "Betty" Mayer, subject of a previous Patch feature, everyone looks forward to the rematch, as the competition is a semi-annual event.

The Marvin is located at 60 Gregory Blvd. in Norwalk. The Marvin Children's Center is also located at 60 Gregory Blvd. Tel. (203) 854-4660
