Deptford, N.J. (July 14, 2019) – Ray Edwards of Middle Island, N.Y. defeated Bob Leonard of Lockwood, N.Y., 259-192, to win the PBA50 Cecil Raymond Memorial presented by Ebonite at Brunswick Zone Deptford on Sunday.

Edwards, who qualified second, held a comfortable lead throughout the title match on his way to his 23rd career PBA Regional title and his second of the year. He also won the 2017 Cecil Raymond Memorial.  Edwards earned $1,500 for the win while Leonard earned $850 as the runner-up.

The tournament, which began in 2004, was renamed in 2014 to honor its sponsor, Cecil Raymond, who passed away in January 2014. Raymond was the 2013 recipient of the East Region’s Pat Patterson Award for outstanding contributions to the regional program.

Edwards, a five-time PBA East Region Player of the Year, advanced to the championship round by defeating Mike Healy of Yonkers, N.Y., 183-169, while Leonard defeated John Zawalick of Westminster, Mass., 197-148, in the semifinal round.  Healy and Zawalick each earned $700 as semifinal round losers.

The next event on the PBA East Region schedule is the PBA Bowlers Supply Storm Eastern Open hosted at Colony Park Lanes North in York, Pa., August 2-4.
