Troup10MIDDLETOWN, Del. – Kyle Troup of Taylorsville, N.C., averaged 245.7 for seven games Saturday to lead the field of 24 finalists into Sunday’s match play finals in the PBA Tour Xtra Frame Gene Carter Pro Shop East Classic at Mid-County Bowling and Entertainment.

Troup, a 23-year-old two-handed player, won his only PBA Tour title in the PBA Wolf Open during the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort Summer Swing earlier this year in Shawnee, Okla. Saturday he posted a 1,720 total to easily pace the sold-out field of 180 bowlers. In second place, 62 pins behind in the race for the $15,000 first prize and a PBA Tour title, was PBA rookie A.J. Johnson of Oswego, Ill., with a 1,658 pinfall total.

Johnson, who is trying for his first PBA title, finished second in the USBC Masters earlier in the season while still an amateur completing his senior year at Lindenwood University. Defending champion Jason Couch of Clermont, Fla., was among the 24 players who advanced to match play, qualifying in 15th place with 1,533 pins.

The top 24 will begin the modified 16-game round-robin match play finals Sunday at 9 a.m. Based upon combined 23-game pinfall totals, including 30 bonus pins for matches won, the top four will compete in a stepladder finale at the conclusion of match play.

All of Sunday’s competition will be video-streamed live, exclusively on PBA’s Xtra Frame online bowling channel. To subscribe, visit pba.com and click on the Xtra Frame link.
