Parker Bohn III and Actor Quinton Aaron Win Main Event Terrell Owens PBA Super Clash
PBA Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III and actor Quinton Aaron teamed up to win three straight matches to take home the Main Event Terrell Owens PBA Super Clash title at Main Event in Katy, Texas.
NFL stars Terrell Owens, Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson and Devin Hester, along with Aaron, who portrayed NFL star Michael Oher in the hit movie “The Blind Side,” headlined the all- star lineup. PBA stars competing in addition to Bohn were three-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte, Hall of Famer Norm Duke and eight-time PBA Tour winner Bill O’Neil.
In the title match, which aired live on ESPN Sunday afternoon, Aaron and Bohn were never challenged beating the Belmonte/Ochocinco team 204-118.
The stepladder seedings for the alternate frame doubles finals were determined by a ‘kickoff round’ where the teams had to bowl as many strikes as possible in 90 seconds.
In the opening match, Bohn and Aaron defeated Duke and Owens, 247-211. In the semifinal, Bohn and Aaron beat Hester and O’Neill 230-180 to advance to the title match against top seed Belmonte and Ochocinco.
The show also featured a segment with Duke, Bohn, O’Neill and Belmonte performing some of their remarkable trick shots. Announcers Dave LaMont and Randy Pedersen also showed their trick shot prowess.
Two rising stars in youth bowling, 2016 Teen Masters U14 Boys’ and Girls’ Division champions Kirk Mowl of Ormond Beach, Fla., and Mabel Cummins of Elburn, Ill., participated in a special doubles exhibition where they were paired with a pro. Cummins and Belmonte, representing the New England Patriots, defeated Mowl and Tackett, representing the Atlanta Falcons, 19-18, in a four-frame match that used a special ‘football’ scoring system.
Earlier in the telecast Cummins substituted for the late-arriving Ochocinco in the kickoff round to help that team earn the top seed for the Super Clash. Article was posted with permission from Stars & Strikes, America's Bowling Newsmagazine. www.starsandstrikesbowling.com
