Bowling News USA - October 31, 2014 Saturday's Cheetah Championship can't arrive soon enough for Storm staffers
Pictured L-R: Brad Angelo, Anthony Pepe and Liz Johnson
Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, New York, completed a charge out of 24th place at the end of the first round to finish fourth and become the first woman to advance to a second PBA Tour national television finals. Johnson was the first woman ever to appear on a PBA Tour television show when she finished second in the 2004 Banquet Open in Wyoming, Mich., losing in the title match to 15-time PBA Tour titlist Tommy Jones.
After a 190 game in her second game Saturday night, Johnson caught fire, rolling games of 279, 245, 278, 258 and 248 to track down PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Missouri, and knock him out of the four-player television finals field by 43 pins.
Brad Angelo of Lockport, New York, who returned to competition after a year of battling injuries, qualified second with 3,414 pins, seven behind Allen, and Anthony Pepe of Elmhurst, New York, advanced to his first PBA TV final in third place with 3,412 pins.
Animal Pattern Championship shows take place this weekend and will be aired on ESPN in December. All qualifying and match play rounds of the animal pattern events and PBA World Championship were covered live on Xtra Frame.
