RONAN, Mont. -

Two brothers and 24 strikes add up to a perfect night of bowling in Ronan.
    
The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/Uw9CB7 ) Josh and Jake Starkel bowled perfect games on the same night earlier this month.
    
Tim Corbett, the owner of Lucky Strike Lanes, says he's talked to state bowling officials and none has heard of such a feat.
    
The Starkels are members of the same bowling league team.
    
Josh Starkel got things rolling with a 300 in his first game. His brother Jake worked up to his, scoring 234 and 184 in two games before hitting his 300.
    
Josh Starkal says he bowled a perfect game once before but it was Jake's first time.
    
Jake Starkal says he couldn't let his brother have two perfect games without having one himself.
