Rookie bowler Egan on top of Masters

Bowling

Rookie bowler A.J. Egan leads the 2018 Princeton Men’s Masters Bowling Tournament through the first round of competition.

Egan, 24, holds a 67.19 to 64.03 lead over second-place Terry Bryner. Former champions J.T. Dant (62.40), Randy Dalrymple (62.06) and Joe Zokal (59.22) round out the top five with defending champ Randy Allen (58.19) standing in seventh.

Egan was on top of his game Saturday, rolling a near-perfect 298 while tallying 1,621 pins for the day. He knocked down 1,748 Sunday.

The Masters’ leader was not king pin Saturday, however. Both Bryner and former champ Allen Layton rolled 300 games.

Both Egan and Michael Camp, who’s had a recent string of 300 games, shared high games of the day of 279 on Sunday.

The pins will fly again at 3 p.m. Saturday at Pin Splitter Lanes for the start of the second round. The stair-step ladders finals will start at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Note: The women’s Masters will follow the weekends of Jan. 19-20 and Jan. 26-27.
