York, Pa. (August 6, 2017) – Anthony Pepe of Elmhurst, N.Y., defeated B.J. Moore of Greensburg, Pa., 198-178, to win the PBA Bowlers Supply/Storm Open presented by Roto Grip at Colony Park Lanes North Sunday for his third career regional title and his second in this event.

Neither bowler was able to post a double in the title match, but the only open frame was by Moore, who split in the eighth frame while trailing by only four pins. When Moore failed to double in the 19th frame, Pepe needed only a mark in his final frame to secure the win.

Pepe dominated qualifying, including bowling the tournament's only 300 game. He then defeated Matt Taylor of Youngsville, N.C., 2-1, in the best-of-three-game Round of 8 and Andrew Suscreba of Clifton, N.J., 247-183, in the semifinals. Moore defeated Jon Van Hees of Charlestown, R.I., 200-194, in the other semifinal match.

Pepe earned $2,500 for the win while Moore earned $1,400 for his second runner-up finish. Van Hees and Suscreba earned $1,100 apiece.

The next event in the PBA East Region is the PBA Xtra Frame Gene Carter Pro Chop Classic hosted by Mid-County Lanes in Middletown, Del., August 18-20. The event will award a PBA Tour title along with a projected $15,000 first prize.
