It's an all Genesis® final as our G-Force™ staff members finish 1-2
It was an all Genesis® / Motiv final, as Dick Allen ended a 6 year title drought by defeating fellow G-Force™ staff member Ryan Ciminelli by a score of 205-176 in the 2017 PBA Xtra Frame Chesapeake Open at AMF Western Branch Lanes. Allen was making his 2nd championship round appearance of the season after a strong showing as usual in the PBA league competition.
“I’ve been close a couple of times,” Allen said, “but after coming so close (a third-place finish in the (Mark Roth-Marshall Holman PBA Doubles Championship) with Zeke (Bayt) made me want to really focus on my game, so I’ve been working at it. These young kids out here now are so good, you really have to work at it if you want to win again. And I love to bowl, and I wanted to win again.”
For both Allen and Ciminelli, it was an odd coincidence that they met each other for their next shot at a title. Just this past June at Bowl Expo, they were our Genesis® PBA Star booth mates signing autographs for all who stopped by in Nashville, TN.
