Scott Weber, Ryan Ciminelli lead qualifying at PBA Storm Open

Scott Weber of LaSalle, Ill., whose best finish in a Professional Bowlers Association tournament was second in a QubicaAMF PBA50 regional event, averaged 253 to lead qualifying Saturday in the PBA Xtra Frame Storm Open at Liberty Lanes.

The 51-year-old Weber, who is no relation to the famous Weber bowling family, bowled a 2,025 eight-game pinfall total with games of 258, 210, 238, 258, 288, 257, 280 and 236. He holds a 41-pin lead over six-time PBA Tour winner Ryan Ciminelli (pictured) of Cheetowaga, N.Y., who finished qualifying with a 1,984 pinfall (248 average).

“I don’t know if I can believe it – it’s a dream come true.” said Weber, who topped a field filled with many PBA Tour stars.

“I was pretty nervous at the start but after the first game I was able to settle down. It’s tough to do but that’s part of the game. I just took some deep breaths and eventually settled into a rhythm.”

Weber and Ciminelli led a group of 16 players who advanced to Sunday’s match play round beginning at 9 a.m. CT. After match play is completed, the top five players will advance to the stepladder finals scheduled to get underway at 2:30 p.m.

Trying for his second consecutive win of the 2016 season, Ciminelli won the recent PBA Maine Shootout in March.
