Page Top Qualifier At Cheetah Championship

Rhino Page jumped from 14th place into the lead as qualifying came to an end Tuesday at the 2019 PBA Cheetah Championship.

Page finished the 10 games of qualifying with a 2,341 total, an average of 234.10, in the opening event of the 2019 PBA World Series of Bowling X at Thunderbowl Lanes in Allen Park, Michigan.

After shooting 1,148 and finding himself in 14th place after the opening five-game block early Tuesday, Page shot 1,193 in the second round to move up to first. A final game of 257 helped push him past Bill O’Neill and into the top spot.

Results: PBA WSOB Cheetah Qualifying Round 2

The top 16 players advanced into the best-of-five single elimination match-play bracket, which will take place Monday starting at Noon Eastern live on FloBowling.

O’Neill qualified second with 2,323, while Josh Blanchard used a 279 final game to jump into third place with 2,310. Kyle Sherman was fourth with 2,306, and David Haynes is fifth with 2,303.

First-round leader Dom Barrett found himself outside the cut number with a game to go but shot 237 in the final game to finish in a tie for 11th place.

Earning the last spot in match play in 16th place was EJ Tackett with 2,244, a 224.40 average. After starting the final block with games of 258 and 246, Tackett barely held onto his match play spot with games of 208, 214 and 205 in the final three games.

One player who failed to advance was Jason Belmonte, who has dominated on the PBA Tour so far this season. Prior to Tuesday, Belmonte’s lowest finish this season in six events had been sixth place at the PBA Oklahoma Open. Belmonte finished Cheetah qualifying in 37th place with a 10-game total of 2,163.

The 10 games of Cheetah qualifying also count toward qualifying for the PBA World Championship. The action now shifts to Wednesday’s qualifying in the PBA Chameleon Championship, which begins at 12:30 p.m. Eastern live on FloBowling.
