Dick Allen leads PBA Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Group Classic qualifiers


Dick Allen of Lexington, S.C., averaged 221.38 on demanding lane conditions Saturday to lead the 32 players who advance to Sunday’s cashers round in the PBA Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Group Classic at Pla-Mor Lanes in Coldwater, Ohio.

The PBA Xtra Frame Kenn-Feld Group Classic is a part of the 2018 Go Bowling! PBA Tour.

The 39-year-old Allen, a five-time PBA Tour champion, was the model of consistency, starting Saturday’s eight-game qualifying round with his only sub-200 game (192) and finishing with games of 204, 212, 233, 258, 253, 217 and 202 for a 1,771 pinfall total.

Allen is trying to win his third PBA Xtra Frame Tour title. He previously won the Xtra Frame Chesapeake Open in Chesapeake, Va., in 2017 and the Xtra Frame Port Property Management Open in Portland, Maine, earlier in 2018.

Pla-Mor Lanes, notorious for its challenging scoring environment, played true to its reputation. Only 16 of the 96 players were able to average 200 or higher during the qualifying round.

“In an event like this, you have to find a way to get to the pocket and make as few changes as possible. Every mistake you make, you lose pins, and every pin counts,” Allen said. “There’s an old Russian saying that would be interpreted here to say something like, you don’t get the pins in Coldwater. The pins get you.”

Allen’s closest challenger after the first eight games was seven-time PBA Tour titlist Ryan Ciminelli (left) of Clarence, N.Y., with 1,706 pins. Two-time titlist Tom Daugherty (right) of Riverview, Fla., third with a 1,678 total. Defending champion Rhino Page of Orlando, Fla., advanced in eighth place.

Kyle Troup (left) of Taylorsville, N.C. rolled a 204 game and Michael Clark Jr. of Cleveland, Ohio, had 188 to advance to cashers round following one-game roll-off to break a tie for 31st and 32nd positions. Jason Sterner (below right), Atlanta, Ga., who posted 170 failed to advance and finished in 33rd place.

Sunday’s schedule begins with a four-game cashers round at 10 a.m. Based on 12-game pinfall totals after the cashers round, the top 16 will bowl three more games at 12:30 p.m. After the Round of 16, the top eight based on 15-game totals move on to the Round of 8, where they will bowl two more games. Pinfall totals for 17 games will decide the four players who will compete in the stepladder finals at 3:30 p.m. All times are Eastern.

All of Sunday’s competition will be live-streamed by PBA Xtra Frame on FloBowling, and will include a new FloBowling option that will allow subscribers to watch the action on all eight pairs of lanes. For subscription information click here.
