Millsboro, Del. (September 24, 2017) – John Conroy of Mahopac, N.Y. and Alex Cavagnaro of Massapequa, N.Y., defeated Ray Edwards of Middle Island, N.Y. and Matt O'Grady of Rahway, N.J., 447-432, 402-471, 436-427, in the best-of-three-game title match to win the PBA/PBA50 Millsboro Lanes Doubles Sunday at Millsboro Lanes.

Cavagnaro, bowling anchor for the winning team, needed a double in the final frame after the two teams split the first two games of the best-of-three contest. Cavagnaro had struggled earlier on the right lane, but made a ball change in the eighth frame which allowed him to throw the clinching double in the 10th.

The win was the second for each bowler. Conroy and Cavagnaro each earned $2,000 while Edwards and O'Grady earned $1,000 each as the runners-up.

In the best-of-three semifinal round, Conroy and Cavagnaro defeated the team of Tony Reynaud of Harwinton, Conn. and Anthony Pepe of Elmhurst, N.Y., 2-0, while Edwards and O'Grady defeated the father/son team of Steve Pavlinko Sr. and Jr. of Sewell, N.J., 2-0. The losing team members each earned $700.

The next East Region event is the PBA50 Bryans Bowling Center Open presented by The Insurance Market and 900 Global, which is being held at Bryans Bowling Center in Laurel, Del. October 20-22.
