Nine Days Later, Josh Blanchard Wins Second PBA Tour Title in Maine Shootout

by Bill Vint March 31, 2015 12:55

PORTLAND, Maine  – Nine days after winning his first Professional Bowlers Association Tour title in Germany, Josh Blanchard of Gilbert, Ariz., made it back-to-back titles, winning the PBA’s Xtra Frame Maine Shootout at Bayside Bowl Tuesday with a 2-1 victory over Australia’s Jason Belmonte in the best-of-three-game title match.

The Maine Shootout, the first PBA Tour event held in Maine, was a best-of-three-game, single-elimination match play tournament that was covered live on PBA’s exclusive online bowling channel, Xtra Frame.

Blanchard, fresh off his first career win in the Brunswick Euro Challenge, won five consecutive best-of-three-game matches, including a stunning Round of 64 decision over Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, on his way to the title. In his first match, Malott won the first game, 270-202, but the 2011-12 PBA Rookie of the Year then rallied for consecutive 258-256 victories to begin his march to the title. He then eliminated Greg Ostrander, Freehold, N.J., 2-0; Jason Sterner of Covington, Ga., 2-0; Bryon Smith of Roseburg, Ore., 2-0, and Osku Palermaa of Finland, 2-0, to reach the title match against the two-time reigning PBA Player of the Year where he won the first game, 243-180, lost the second, 204-234, and started with six strikes en route to a 249-211 in the deciding game..

“I just decided to stop trying to hook the ball,” Blanchard said of his career-changing strategy. “I decided I just don’t have the ball rotation to hook the ball with these guys, so I went back to playing it straight, and I think I’ll keep doing it for awhile.”

For his victory, Blanchard earned $10,000 and he denied Belmonte a third 2015 title.

The PBA Tour will resume competition May 9-17 in Shawnee, Okla., with Oklahoma’s Grand Casino Hotel and Resort PBA Summer Swing at Firelake Bowling Center and the Grand Casino Event Center. The Wolf, Bear, Badger and Oklahoma Open titles will be decided, along with a King of the Swing special event. Preliminary rounds will be covered line on Xtra Frame and the finals of all five events will air on CBS Sports Network on dates to be announced.

16 Survivors Advance to Tuesday’s PBA Xtra Frame Maine Shootout Final Rounds

by Bill Vint March 30, 2015 14:05

PORTLAND, Maine – Sixteen players survived the opening two rounds of the Professional Bowlers Association’s Xtra Frame Maine Shootout at Bayside Bowl Monday, but four PBA Hall of Famers and four former PBA Players of the Year were sidelined in the first best-of-three-game, single-elimination matches.

The Maine Shootout, the first-ever PBA Tour event held in Maine, ends Tuesday when the 16 players who advanced from Monday’s competition will continue to bowl best-of-three matches until a winner is decided. All of the competition will be covered live on PBA’s exclusive online bowling channel, Xtra Frame.

In Monday’s opening round, four PBA Hall of Famers were eliminated in 2-0 matches: Jason Sterner of Covington, Ga., toppled Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo.; Rick Graham of Lancaster, Pa., ousted Parker Bohn of Jackson, N.J., 2-0; amateur Terrence Robinson of Gray, Maine, knocked out 47-time PBA Tour titlist Walter Ray Williams Jr. of Oxford, Fla., and Scott Norton of Mission Viejo, Calif., swept Venezuela’s Amleto Monacelli.

Former PBA Players of the Year also were eliminated, including Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, who was stunned by Josh Blanchard of Gilbert, Ariz. After beating Blanchard in game one, 270-202, Blanchard won back-to-back 258-256 decisions over Malott. EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., threw the day’s only 300 game on his way to a 2-1 verdict over Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C.; Tim Mack of Indianapolis stepped in for PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke, who withdrew due to a back injury, and dispatched Mika Koivuniemi of Hartland, Mich., 2-0, and Patrick Allen of Wesley Chapel, Fla., swept Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, 2-0.

Local favorite Scott Moore, an amateur from Gray, Maine, eliminated another former PBA Player of the Year, Sean Rash of Montgomery, Ill., 2-1, in the Round of 32. The final two PBA Players of the Year – two-time reigning POY Jason Belmonte of Australia and former POY Patrick Allen of Wesley Chapel, Fla. – each won their first two matches and advanced to Tuesday’s Round of 16.
