Ryan Ciminelli Hoping for First PBA Tour Title
as Top Qualifier for PBA One A Day Earl Anthony Memorial Finals
Weber, Allen and Jones also advance to Sunday’s ESPN2-televised stepladder finals
DUBLIN, Calif. (Jan. 28, 2011) -- Looking for his first Lumber Liquidators Professional Bowlers Association Tour title, Ryan Ciminelli of Cheektowaga, N.Y., earned the top seed for Sunday’s stepladder finals of the PBA One A Day Earl Anthony Memorial at Earl Anthony’s Dublin Bowl.
The 24-year-old Ciminelli earned the top seed with an 11-6-1 overall match play record and 32-game 7,688 overall pinfall total Friday, topping PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber of St. Ann, Mo., who had an 11-7 match play record and 7,572 overall pinfall to earn the No 2 seed.
Ciminelli’s previous best Tour finishes were second in the 2009 Cheetah and Viper Championships and third in the 2010 United States Bowling Congress Masters. He’s gained a lot of confidence after finishing 14th in last week’s PBA Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas.
“For whatever reason I haven’t matched up well with the conditions for a long time,” said Ciminelli. “Things started to turn around at the Tournament of Champions where my physical game was sharp and my mental game was locked in.
“If I can win it will take a big load off my shoulders. There’s a lot of pressure but I’m in the best position to be in so hopefully the pins will fall my way this time.”
Weber, 48, will be trying for his 36th Tour title with his last title coming in the Lumber Liquidators Marathon Open last April. He’s gotten off to a slow start this season with a best finish of 17th in both the Brunswick Pro Bowling Cheetah Championship and GEICO Shark Championship.
“It may be hard to believe but I feel I’m bowling well but just not scoring well,” Weber said. “A lot of times it comes down to the breaks you get. You can throw it good but not get the breaks but when you do get the breaks you need to take advantage of them and I was able to do that.”
Competing in the opening stepladder match that will be televised Sunday on ESPN2 at 2 p.m. Eastern (11 a.m. Pacific) will be No. 3 seed Patrick Allen of Wesley Chapel, Fla., against No. 4 seed Tommy Jones of Greenville, S.C. Both players will be trying for a 14th Tour title. Ironically, both of their last wins came in the DyDo Japan Cup—Jones in 2010 and Allen in 2009.
