Kent, Sullins take first round lead in PBA50 Security Federal Savings Bank Championship


PBA Hall of Famer Doug Kent and three-time PBA50 Tour winner Harry Sullins both bowled 1,821 eight-game pinfall totals Sunday to share the first round lead in the PBA50 Security Federal Savings Bank Championship presented by Track at Dave Small’s Heritage Lanes in Kokomo, Indiana.

Sullins (featured photo), whose last PBA50 Tour title came in the 2011 Senior Lake County Open, bowled games of 246, 204, 241, 208, 248, 183, 233 and 258.

“I’ve been bowling great in qualifying but not so great in match play,” said the 60-year-old Sullins (right), who also owns five PBA Tour titles. “I just have to keep that never-give-up attitude and catch some breaks in match play and hopefully good things will happen.

“I bowled pretty well today but it was a battle to get lined up on each pair (of lanes).” Sullins added. “It seemed like I wasn’t able to get comfortable until the third or fourth frame.”

Kent (left), a 10-time PBA Tour winner who is trying for his first PBA50 Tour title, bowled games of 206, 224, 203, 247, 248, 178, 279 and 236.

“The first three or four games seemed like I could get the ball to the pocket but I couldn’t kick out the corner pins,” said the 51-year-old Kent. “For the most part I was staying away from bad games so I just had to be patient and hope that I would start carrying better.”

Finishing 24 pins behind Sullins and Kent was four-time PBA50 Tour winner PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke (right) in third with 1,797.

Michael Haugen Jr. (left), who continues his march to PBA50 Player of the Year honors, appeared to be on track to take the first round lead but bowled a 167 in his final game to finish the round in fourth with 1,788. Hall of Famer Bryan Goebel (below right) rounded out the top five with 1,785.

Qualifying continues Monday with another eight-game round beginning at 10 a.m. EDT. After qualifying the top 16 players will advance to Tuesday’s match play rounds with positions 17-25 and eight PBA60 players advancing to a cashers’ round to determine eight additional match play spots. After match play the top five players will be determined for the stepladder finals scheduled for Tuesday at 7 p.m.
