Kauble tops field of 73 senior players at Beverly Lanes

by PBA Editor June 30, 2002 19:00
TIM KAUBLE PREVAILS FOR 6TH TITLE AT COMMUNCIATION SOLUTIONS EVENT Since joining he PBA shortly before reaching the age of senior eligibility, Tim Kauble of Marion, Ohio, has earned senior regional titles in both the Central and Eastern regions. Sunday he added the a Midwest regional title to his list of accomplishments by defeating Jeff Van Blair of Newton, Iowa, 256-154, championship game to win the event sponsored by Communication Solutions at Beverly Lanes in Arlington Heights, Ill. En route to his 6th title overall, Kauble, 54, had to double in the 10th frame of the semi-final match to defeat Bob Teeters of Anderson, Ind., 232-226. While Kauble’s game was going down to the wire, Van Blair fired the tournament’s only 300 game in his semi-final match against Don Johnson of Moline, Iowa. “I was dripping adrenaline out of my ears going into the final game,” said Van Blair, who was shooting for his second senior regional title. “Apparently I didn’t have much left at the end.” As Van Blair began the title game with an open frame, Kauble built a lead by striking in four of his first five frames. After converting a 2-pin for a spare in the sixth frame, the eventual winner put the tournament away with five more consecutive strikes. Kauble set the tone early in the day when he won his first best of five match 3-0 against Detroit’s Leo Scantamburlo, while firing a 786 series for those games. “I liked the lanes when oil was fresh,” he said. Kauble works as a manager at his city’s water pollution control plant. He was able to find enough time last year to finish among the top 10 in four tournaments on the national senior tour. “I’m really after that too-- a national title,” he said, as he picked up the $1,500 winner’s check. Van Blair made $900 for second. While Johnson and Teeters both earned $750 for making it to the semi-final round. The next Midwest regional tournament will be a combined regular and senior Foundation Games event at Schwoegler’s Parktowne Lanes in Madison, Wis., July 12-14.

MORIN CAPTURES FIFTH REGIONAL TITLE

by PBA Editor June 29, 2002 19:00
Jeff Morin took advantage of a Saturday night trip home to bring the right piece of equipment back to Sunday’s match play finals and won the 4th Annual Hoe Bowl on the Hill Eastern Regional. Morin commuted to Kingston from his Hopatcong, NJ home rather than spend Saturday night in a motel and that decision proved to be a deciding factor in his winning a fifth regional title. “I told my wife Monica on the way home that I felt I had a ball home that would give me a better look. As soon as we got home, I went and put the ball into the back of the van.” Morin, who had qualified 12th in the field of 146, went on to post an 8-0 match play record in the morning and moved into a 41-pin lead at the lunch break over Tommy Delutz Jr. of Flushing, NY. Morin won his first four matches in the afternoon until dropping a190-186 decision to Josh Becker in game 13. He bounced back with another two wins and entered position round with a 160-pin lead over Delutz. Despite losing the final game 246-234, Morin pocketed the $2500 first place money while Delutz earned $1400 for his second place finish. Tim Criss of Bel Air, MD finished third, worth $1200 while Ryan Shafer of Elmira, NY was fourth, earning $1000 and Gary Shultis of Levittown, NY completed the top five finishers. Morin became the fifth different winner in as many tournaments this season and moved to third in winnings and second in points as a result of the win. The Eastern Region takes off the July Fourth holiday weekend before returning to AMF Country Club Lanes in Baltimore on July 12-14. The senior division makes a return to the Bowlers Club in Latham, NY the following weekend. July concludes with the Pepsi Challenge which is contested in two centers, Cedar Lanes in Lebanon and Palmyra Bowling Center in Palmyra, Pa. simultaneously.
