Two-time defending champions Shannon O’Keefe and Bill O’Neill kept their hopes for a third consecutive PBA-PBA Xtra Frame Striking Against Breast Cancer Mixed Doubles title alive by a single pin Saturday as Brad Miller of Raytown, Mo., and partner Natalie Cortese of Hoffman Estates, Ill., led the field of 40 teams that will advance to Sunday’s cashers round at Copperfield Bowl.

Also advancing were Shannon Pluhowsky of Dayton, Ohio, and partner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., the only team to win the event four times.

Cortese, a former Valparaiso University collegiate star and a Dexter High School All-American, averaged 213.7 for her seven qualifying games. Miller, who has won one PBA Midwest Regional title in his five-year career, averaged 232 on games of 289, 226, 221, 217, 248, 255 and 168.

The duo (above left) finished with a combined total of 3,120 pins and a 14-pin lead over Germany’s Birgit Pöppler and PBA Tour titlist Jason Sterner of Cocoa, Fla. Lindsay Boomershine of Perry, Utah, and Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C. (pictured right), were third with 3,045 pins.

O’Keefe and O’Neill, who won the tournament in 2013 as well as 2015 and ’16, kept their hopes for a third consecutive – and fourth overall – title by one pin, qualifying in 40th place, 259 pins behind the leaders. Pluhowsky and Jones, who are trying for a record fifth title, qualified in 12th place. They won the event in 2007, ’08, ’10 and ’11.

The top 40 teams will bowl a five-game cashers round at 8:30 a.m. CDT Sunday, after which the top eight teams based on a combined 12 team games (24 individual games) will bowl a final eight games of round-robin match play to determine the champion.

The winners, if PBA and/or PWBA members, also will win PBA and/or PWBA Tour titles.
