PBA Spare Shots: Mitchell Spoils a Chris Vs. Lynda Barnes Title Match in Wichita Regional Event

by Bill Vint June 25, 2010 04:35

RPI_2009Lynda Barnes needed one more win to set up the first husband vs. wife title match in PBA history Sunday, June 20, at Thunderbird Lanes in Wichita, Kan., but top qualifier Kevin Mitchell (left) of Tulsa, Okla., spoiled the fun when he eliminated Mrs. Barnes in the semifinal round, 224-180.

Chris Barnes defeated Mitchell, 247-195, to win the joint PBA Southwest/Midwest Regional Wichita Open, but it was his wife and the possibilities of an historic title showdown that had people talking.

Lynda Barnes made it interesting when she swept Wichita’s Sean Rash in their best-of-five-game Round of 16 match, 229-207, 202-193 and 235-227 in their first “re-match” since Lynda Barnes defeated Rash in the title match of USBC’s nationally-televised 2008 Clash of Champions in Kansas City, Mo., 258-237. Lynda Barnes then defeated 2009-10 Lumber Liquidators PBA Tour competitor George Lambert IV in their best-of-three, Round of 8 match, 217-178 and 220-124, to advance to the semifinal round.

lol that would've been interesting, but I'd assume that they would root for each other if they bowled against each other.

The only other family matches I can think of that have happened in the PBA are Dale vs. Dave Traber from 1994, and also some brother in law matches, like Parker Bohn vs. Doug Kent.
