Stevie Weber of Chalmette advanced through the second cut Thursday night, but slipped to 15th place through 32 games of the Professional Bowlers Association’s Lumber Liquidators Marathon Open at AMF Country Club Lanes in Baltimore.

The Marathon Open is the final regular event of the 2009-10 PBA Tour season and includes activity on each of the tour’s oil patterns.

Weber has knocked down 7,214 pins in 32 games, a 225.4 average. He had a solid effort on the “Viper” pattern earlier Thursday, averaging better than 223 for seven games. Weber went into the evening session in fifth place, but started slowly on the “Chameleon” pattern before finishing with a 209 average in that block.

Defending PBA Player of the Year Wes Malott of Pflugerville, Texas, has led through much of the last two days. Malott’s total of 7,507 is 91 pins better than second-place Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas.

The top 32 bowlers move on to bowl seven games Friday at 9 a.m. CDT on the “Scorpion” pattern. The top 24 after Friday morning’s shift will advance to bowl seven games on the Earl Anthony pattern at 4 p.m. CDT.

After 53 games on seven different oil patterns, the top five will advance to the ESPN-televised finals Sunday at noon CDT.
