WARNING: Go no further if you do not want to know the final results of the PBA Scorpion Championships before they air on ESPN on Sunday, Nov. 29, on ESPN.

Defending champion Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, advanced to the Round of 8 in the PBA Scorpion Championship at Thunderbowl Lanes Tuesday, but it was a rough afternoon for three of the four top qualifiers.

Tuesday was a big day for the underdogs in the PBA Scorpion Championships at Thunderbowl Lanes where defending champions Wes Malott and Michelle Feldman were among the victims, and a local player who is the face of Michigan's struggling automotive industry was one of the heroes.

Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, and Liz Johnson of Cheektowaga, N.Y., raced into the first round qualifying leads in the Professional Bowlers Association Scorpion and Women's Scorpion Championships, respectively, at Thunderbowl Lanes Monday.

PBA Hall of Famer Pete Weber and former PBA Tour exempt player Kelly Kulick led their respective fields at the end of qualifying in the PBA Scorpion and Women's Scorpion Championships at Thunderbowl Lanes Monday.

Lee Vanderhoef of Greenville, S.C., and Sun Hee Lee of South Korea will lead a field of 13 men and four women, respectively, who will advance to the PBA Scorpion Championship at Thunderbowl Lanes on Monday.
