In the semifinal round, Bower eliminated PBA50 Tour Rookie of the Year Michael Haugen Jr. of Phoenix, 236-186, while Kretzer ousted Lee Brosius of Ashburn, Va., 245-218, to advance to the title match. Haugen and Brosius each earned $750. In earlier best-of-three-game matches, Bower swept John Conroy of Mahopac, N.Y., 2-0-, and Glenn Smith of New York City, 2-0.

The final event in the 2017 East Region schedule is the PBA Knob Hill/MJK Pro Shop Challenge at Knob Hill Country Lanes Dec. 1-2. PBA Challenge events are open to any PBA member without a title and any non-member who has never won a PBA event.
