Date: Wed, Dec 5th, 2018 12:00:00 am

Manalapan, N.J. (Dec. 1, 2018) – Scott Kinkaid of Elizabethtown, Pa., defeated Steven Kotowski of Clark, N.J., 278-236, to win the Professional Bowlers Association MJK Pro Shop/Knob Hill Eastern Challenge presented by Brunswick on Saturday.

PBA Challenge events are open to any member or non-member who has never won a PBA event.

Kinkaid, a 44-year-old non-member was bowling in his 12th career PBA event. He qualified sixth and then dominated the field in the bracket elimination finals. He posted 6-1 record, averaging 262.4 over the seven games. Kotowski, who was competing in only his second career regional event, posted a 5-2 record.

Kinkaid earned $1,500 for the win, but does not receive credit for a PBA Regional title because he is a non-member. Kotowski earned $1,000 for his runner-up finish. 

In the semifinal matches, Kinkaid topped Michael Markis of Tafton, Pa., 269-234, and Kotowski defeated Jeremy Milito of Holbrook, N.Y., 223-214. Markis and Milito earned $750 apiece.

The Knob Hill event concluded the East Region’s 2018 season. The first event in 2019 will be the PBA50 Rossi Lanes Eastern Open held in Elmira, N.Y. March 22-24.
