CHESAPEAKE, Va. – England’s Dom Barrett, in pursuit of his eighth Professional Bowlers Association Tour title, averaged 227 Saturday at AMF North Branch to take the qualifying lead in the PBA Harry O’Neale Chesapeake Open.

Barrett, who is looking for his first title of the 2019 Go Bowling! PBA Tour season, rolled games of 225, 256, 227, 268, 231, 172, 224 and 214 for an eight-game total of 1,817 pins and a two-pin lead over PBA Hall of Famer Chris Barnes heading into Sunday’s cashers round.

Rounding out the top five among the 48 qualifiers who advanced were Bill O'Neill of Langhorne, Pennsylvania with 1,752 pins in third place followed by 2017 PBA Rookie of the Year Matt Sanders of Evansville, Indiana at 1,743 and hometown favorite Steven Arehart of Chesapeake with a 1,731 total. Dick Allen of Lexington, South Carolina, who won the last Chesapeake Open held in 2017, survived the cashers round cut in a tie for 47th place with 1,608 pins.

The Harry O’Neale Chesapeake Open is named in honor of the long-time PBA South Region manager who was inducted into the PBA Hall of Fame in 2016 for his service to the organization. The tournament is the third of 10 events that are part of the FloBowling PBA Summer Tour.

Competition resumes Sunday with a four-game cashers round for the top 48 qualifiers at 9 a.m. The top 16 after 12 games will advance to the three-game Round of 16 at 11:30 a.m. Fifteen-game pinfall totals will reduce the field to 8 players who will bowl an additional two games at 1:30 p.m. to decide the four players for the stepladder finals at 3 p.m. All times are Eastern.
