Date: Wed, Oct 2nd, 2019 12:00:00 am

Frederick, Md. (Sept. 29, 2019) – John Furey of Howell, N.J., earned his second career PBA Regional title when he defeated PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Danny Wiseman of Baltimore, 224-190, in the title match of the PBA Bowlers Discount Eastern Open presented by Radical at Terrace Lanes Sunday.

Furey, whose previous win came in 2012, started the championship match with five strikes while Wiseman struggled with pin carry on the left lane. Wiseman closed the deficit to 22 pins late in the game when Furey, who finished first, failed to clinch the win with a double in the 10th frame. Wiseman had a chance to strike out to force a roll-off, but when he failed to strike on his first shot, Furey was assured of the win.

Furey earned $2,500 and Wiseman received $1,300 as the runner-up.

In the semifinal matches, Furey defeated Matt O’Grady of Rahway, N.J., 242-191, while Wiseman eliminated Jake Rollins of Glen Rock, N.J., 245-167.

The next event on the 2019 East Region schedule is the PBA50 Revolutions Pro Shop Open at Boulevard Lanes in Schenectady, N.Y., next weekend.
