Sean Lavery-Spahr (right), a 36-year-old three-time PBA Regional title winner from Pasadena, Texas, averaged 243.75 for eight games Saturday to lead the PBA Xtra Frame Lubbock Sports Open field of 160 bowlers through qualifying at South Plains Lanes in Lubbock, Texas.

Lavery-Spahr (right), who is trying for his first PBA Tour title, rolled games of 242, 278, 236, 198, 235, 244, 269 and 248 for a 1,950 pinfall total and a 29-pin lead over reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett (left) of Huntington, Ind., who finished with a 1,921 total. Tackett is trying for his third PBA Tour title of the year and the eighth of his young career.

In third place heading into Sunday’s six-game cashers round was Chris Barnes (right) of Double Oak, Texas, with 1,885 pins followed by Australia’s Sam Cooley with 1,872 pins and Dick Allen of Columbia, S.C., with a 1,862 total.

The top 53 players advancing to the cashers round included the three previous PBA Xtra Frame Tour winners from earlier in the year. Xtra Frame Reality Check Classic winner Josh Blanchard (left) of Tempe, Ariz., advanced in 26th place; Wilmington Open winner Anthony Simonsen was in 22nd place and last week’s Greater Jonesboro Open winner Francois Lavoie was tied for 34th place. After the cashers round, the top 16 will advance to the eight-game modified round-robin match play round leading up to the four-player stepladder finals.

Also advancing to the cashers round was defending Lubbock champion Jakob Butturff (right) of Tempe, Ariz., who was in 11th place at the end of qualifying; Xtra Frame Storm Cup points leader Dom Barrett of England was tied for 34th, and Lavery-Spahr’s twin brother, Anthony Lavery-Spahr, in 23rd place.

At stake Sunday is a $12,500 first prize, a PBA Tour title and 25 points in the Storm Cup points race to the winner.

The Lubbock Sports Open is the fourth of seven Storm Cup events which will reward the top five players in points with a total of $50,000 in bonus money at the end of the season, including $20,000 to the points champion. The top 20 in each Storm Cup event earn points. For details about the program, click here.
