Silver Lake Atom Splitters Win 2014 PBA League Elias Cup

by Jerry Schneider April 13, 2014 07:57

Down 2 points to 1 and trailing by 31 pins in the deciding final Baker game, the Silver Lake Atom Splitters presented by Spiceworks rallied to defeat L.A. X presented by GoBowling.com to win the 2014 Professional Bowlers Association League Elias Cup.

In the fifth frame of the Baker game, which was worth three points, Silver Lake’s Bryon Smith, Chris Barnes, Dom Barrett, Wes Malott and Tommy Jones combined to string the last seven strikes to overtake the L.A. X lineup of Mika Koivuniemi, EJ Tackett, Andres Gomez, Jason Belmonte and Parker Bohn III, winning the game, 225-203, and the match 4-2.

The finals, seen Sunday on ESPN from Brunswick Zone Carolier, opened with a battle between reigning PBA Player of the Year and nine-time Tour titlist Belmonte bowling for L.A. Clippers all-star guard Chris Paul’s L.A. X, and former Player of the Year and 17-time Tour winner Barnes, bowling for television and Internet personality Chris Hardwick’s Atom Splitters.

Belmonte, wearing his Google Glass headset that provides a point-of-view look at his release, dominated from the start firing the first nine strikes and finishing with a 279-259 victory over Barnes to give L.A. X the early 1-0 lead.

In the alternate-shot doubles game, Barnes teamed with Smith to defeat the L.A. X pairing of Bohn and Koivuniemi, 261-228, to even the match at 1-1. Down by 12 pins in the third frame after Smith left a 2-10 split that Barnes was unable to convert, the pair came back with eight consecutive strikes to win handily.

In the Baker trios contest, the momentum swung back to L.A. X with Belmonte, Gomez and 2012-13 PBA Rookie of the Year Tackett defeating Silver Lake’s Jones, Barrett and Malott, 216-190, to regain the match lead, 2-1, setting up the deciding Baker game.

“The important thing is to have a lineup where you know everyone has your back,” said Barnes, who earned the PBA League’s Mark Roth Most Valuable Player award. “Whether you strike or split you have to know that the guy behind you is giving it his all. 

“You have to remember that the singles game is the only part of the tournament where you’re not bowling with a teammate(s). Personally, I felt these guys put me in a position to succeed. I couldn’t think of a better group of guys who had that ‘have-your-back’ mentality.”

Team manager and four-time Tour winner Mark Baker also stressed the importance of the Atom Splitters’ player chemistry and putting together the right lineups in the right situations throughout the whole PBA League season.

“We put this team together for the sole purpose of getting to this point,” said Baker. “With a team that has this much talent it makes it easy—you could make a decision and feel confident you could stick with it. I never second-guessed myself.”

For the second consecutive year, the journey to the Elias Cup, named after the late founder of the PBA Eddie Elias, began with eight teams competing in a single-elimination bracket to determine the winner. Quarterfinal and semifinal rounds were conducted in January at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Mich., with the championship final conducted at Brunswick Zone Carolier.

PBA Spare Shots: Belmonte, Walter Ray Achieve PBA Pinfall Milestones

by Bill Vint April 9, 2014 07:58

One of the most notable pinfall milestones a grassroots bowler can accomplish is membership in the United States Bowling Congress Open Championships’ 100,000 pinfall club, a feat long-time PBA member and current Storm Products Vice President-Public Relations Bob Hart accomplished recently in Reno. In his 58th USBC Open appearance, Hart became the 14th bowler to join that elite club.

By way of comparison, Australia’s Jason Belmonte is the first member a new PBA 100,000 pinfall club, and it only took him five years to do it. The reigning PBA Player of the Year is the first player to surpass that milestone in PBA World Series of Bowling competition, knocking over 101,431 pins in 456 games (a 222.43 scoring pace). Sean Rash will likely become the second member of the WSOB 100,000 pinfall club this fall in his sixth World Series. Rash has a 99,717 total for 445 games, averaging 224.04.

While membership in any 100,000 pinfall club is noteworthy, PBA Hall of Famer Walter Ray Williams Jr. has established a standard for PBA Tour competition that will be hard to beat. Williams closed the 2012-13 PBA Tour season as the first-and-only player to knock down more than five million pins in PBA Tour competition. As of Dec. 31, 2013, Williams had bowled 22,926 games in 775 PBA Tour events and knocked down a total of 5,019,834 pins – a lifetime average of 218.95.

To put WRW’s career into perspective, an average league bowler rolling 100 games in a season would need to average nearly 219 for a little more than 229 years to match that feat.

Williams’ closest challenger is fellow Hall of Famer Pete Weber who has toppled 4,650,511 pins in 21,482 games during a career that began in 1979. Weber has averaged 216.48 in his 750 PBA Tour events.

ESPN “SPORTS SCIENCE” SEGMENT EXPLORES RASH’S STRIKING POWER ON SUNDAY

W.R. Williams Begins PBA50 Player of the Year Title Defense in Pasco County Open

by Jerry Schneider April 8, 2014 07:48

With a new crop of PBA Tour talent becoming eligible for the PBA50 Tour in 2014, the road to a third consecutive Player of the Year crown won’t get any easier for two-time defending PBA50 Tour Player of the Year Walter Ray Williams Jr. 

Williams heads an all-star list of more than 120 players ages 50 and over who are entered in the season-opening PBA50 Tour Pasco County Open April 12-15 at Lane Glo Bowl in New Port Richey, Fla.

All qualifying and match play rounds of the tournament will be covered live on PBA’s exclusive online bowling channel, Xtra Frame. For subscription information, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame link.

As the 2014 season gets underway, Williams will again face challenges from his two closest rivals in 2013, fellow Hall of Famers Pete Weber and Amleto Monacelli who are among 10 Hall of Famers in the field including newly-eligible PBA50 challengers Norm Duke and Parker Bohn III.

Williams, the winner of a record 47 PBA Tour titles and a record seven PBA Player of the Year crowns, got his 2013 PBA50 season off to a good start with a third-place finish in the Pasco County Open and went on to win three titles during the season, bringing his PBA50 Tour career total to seven. Along with his three titles, he had two thirds and two fourths including fourth in the Senior U.S. Open.

With his legendary career of accomplishment on the PBA Tour carrying over to the PBA50 Tour, Williams is still able to find challenges to stay motivated.

“I still love competing,” Williams said. “I’m one of those lucky people who loves what they do and I’ve been able to make a living doing it. I haven’t lost the desire.”

Despite competing in only six tournaments in 2013, Weber, a 37-time winner on the PBA Tour, made an immediate impact in 2013, earning PBA50 Rookie of the Year honors thanks to winning two titles including his first major in the Senior Masters.

Monacelli, a 19-time winner on the PBA Tour, successfully defended his PBA Senior U.S. Open title in Las Vegas in 2013 for his second career PBA50 Tour title. Other top finishes during the season included two seconds, two fifth and two-eighth-place finishes.

“With the competition looking to be even tougher this season, it would be an awesome accomplishment to repeat as (PBA50) Player of the Year,” Williams said. “I’m pretty confident heading into the new season. I bowled well in the (USBC Masters in February) and I bowled well in a couple regionals recently.

“My practice routine is still pretty much the same, working on repeating shots, practicing on different lane conditions, different parts of the lane and making spares.”

Hall of Famer Tom Baker, also entered in the Pasco County Open, holds the record for PBA50 Player of the Year honors with four consecutive crowns from 2005 to 2008.

Williams, Weber and Monacelli were rewarded for their 2013 seasons by qualifying for the first PBA50 Finals which were conducted as part of World Series of Bowling V. Williams won the title by defeating Monacelli in the championship match 224-204.

Throughout the 2014 PBA50 Tour season, players will again be competing for three berths in the end-of-season PBA50 Tour Finals which will be conducted at a site and date to be determined. The three berths will be based on Player of the Year points which are earned for championship round finishes.

Five-time PBA Tour champion Bob Learn Jr. is the Pasco County Open defending champion. Last season he overcame a sprained lower back suffered half way through the tournament to defeat Hall of Famer Wayne Webb in the championship match, 226-206.

Pasco County Open competition begins on Sunday April 13 with qualifying rounds at 10 a.m. ET. Qualifying continues on April 14. After 16 games, the field will be cut to the top 40 for single-elimination match play competition on April 15.

SUNDAY ON ESPN: Atom Splitters vs. L.A. X in ‘Battle of Los Angeles’ Finale for 2014 PBA League Elias Cup at 2 p.m. ET

by Jerry Schneider April 7, 2014 04:30

Television and Internet personality Chris Hardwick and L.A. Clippers all-star guard Chris Paul will have a score to settle this Sunday on ESPN at 2 p.m. ET when their respective Professional Bowlers Association League teams battle it out for the 2014 PBA League Elias Cup from Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, N.J.

In what can be called the  ‘Battle of Los Angeles,’ Hardwick’s Silver Lake Atom Splitters presented by Spiceworks team, and Paul’s L.A. X presented by Gobowling.com team, are the two surviving teams from an original eight-team field that competed in a six-round series of head-to-head single-elimination team matches that incorporated singles, alternate-shot doubles, trios and Baker team contests.

During each PBA League match, one point is awarded for a win in singles, doubles and trios contests with three points at stake in the five-player Baker team finale. In case of a 3-3 tie at the conclusion of the match, a one-ball, sudden-death roll-off between players selected by the team managers will determine the winner.

The Atom Splitters are managed by four-time PBA Tour champion and noted bowling instructor Mark Baker.  L.A. X is managed by former Team USA member and current United States Bowling Congress President Andrew Cain.

Sunday’s opening singles match up will feature reigning PBA Player of the Year two-handed Australian star Jason Belmonte bowling for L.A. X against 17-time Tour champion and former Player of the Year Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, representing the Atom Splitters.

In the alternate-shot doubles match, Barnes will pair with 2003 USBC Masters champion Bryon Smith of Roseburg, Ore., against PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III of Jackson, N.J., a 33-time Tour winner, and his partner two-time Player of the Year and 13-time Tour titlist Mika Koivuniemi of Finland.

In the trios match, the Atom Splitters lineup will send 15-time Tour winner Tommy Jones of Simpsonville, S.C., three-time champion Dom Barrett of England and nine-time Tour winner Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, against L.A. X’s Belmonte, two-time Tour winner Andres Gomez of Colombia and 2012-13 Rookie of the Year E.J. Tackett of Huntington, Ind.

In the Baker finale, the Atom Splitters’ Smith, Barnes, Barrett, Malott and Jones will line up against L.A. X’s Koivuniemi, Tackett, Gomez, Belmonte and Bohn.

The PBA League Elias Cup is named after the late PBA Hall of Famer Eddie Elias who founded the PBA in 1958.

Silver Lake Atom Splitters Sweep Philly Hitmen, Advance to PBA League Elias Cup Finals Vs. L.A. X

by Bill Vint April 6, 2014 06:55

ALLEN PARK, Mich. – Chris Barnes and his Silver Lake Atom Splitters teammates swept the Philadelphia Hitmen in the final Professional Bowlers Association League semifinal match to earn a berth in the 2014 Elias Cup finals against Jason Belmonte and his L.A. X team.

The final semifinal round match at Thunderbowl Lanes aired Sunday on ESPN. The all-Los Angeles area battle for the Elias Cup will air on ESPN on Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m. ET.

After finishing in sixth place among eight teams in the 2013 introductory PBA League season, the Atom Splitters, presented by Spiceworks and owned by Internet podcast innovator and television host Chris Hardwick, bolstered their 2014 lineup with the addition of former PBA Players of the Year Tommy Jones and Wes Malott, and won 11 of a possible 12 points in matches against the Dallas Strikers and the Hitmen, presented by High 5 Gear, to advance to the Elias Cup finals at Brunswick Zone Carolier in North Brunswick, N.J.

“Our team keeps getting better as we go,” Barnes said. “We’ll switch venues for the Elias Cup, which will have an impact. Carolier hooks a lot less than Thunderbowl does. As far as L.A. X’s fearless leader (Australian two-handed star Belmonte) is concerned, that’s not much of a deal, but I don’t know about the rest of their team. They have a lot of good shot-makers, but so do we. I think we’re down to the two strongest teams.”

Belmonte agreed.

“The Atom Splitters are a stacked team,” the L.A. X team leader said. “I feel our performance speaks for itself. If there’s a team that’s going to give (Silver Lake) a run for their money, it’s us.”

L.A. X, presented by GoBowling.com, eliminated the BROOKLYN STyLES and the defending Elias Cup champion New York City WTT KingPins in earning its berth in the Elias Cup finale.

Barnes gave Silver Lake a 1-0 lead by winning the singles match against Philadelphia franchise player Bill O’Neill. Barnes survived a 3-4-6-7-10 split in the sixth frame after throwing five strikes to start the game. After he failed to convert the split, he threw another string of four strikes for a 248-236 win.

In alternate ball doubles, Philadelphia’s Josh Blanchard and Ryan Ciminelli threw back-to-back strikes in the ninth and 10th frames to overcome the Atom Splitters’ one-pin lead, but Barnes and partner Bryon Smith answered with three strikes in their 10th frame to pull out a 228-226 win for a 2-0 lead.

Silver Lake’s Tommy Jones, Dom Barrett and Wes Malott started the Baker trios contest with six strikes, building a 53-pin lead, and held on for a 233-216 win over Ciminelli, O’Neill and Dan MacLelland for a 3-0 lead.

The Atom Splitters completed the sweep with a convincing 247-224 victory in the Baker team finale. Smith, Barnes, Barrett, Malott and Jones struck on eight of their first nine shots and Silver Lake never gave the Hitmen a chance.

“We’re five players deep,” Barnes said. “We didn’t bowl very well in our first match (against Dallas), but we survived that. We figured that was as bad as it could get, so we threw everyone back out there and it worked out. We just don’t like to lose. Ever.”
