NORTH BRUNSWICK, NJ (21 Alive) - Huntington's E.J. Tackett came up shot in his first Professional Bowlers Association final match on Sunday, losing to defending champ Jason Belmonte 221-177.

Tackett, the reigning PBA Rookie of the Year, was the top seeded player on the final day, but he had an open fifth frame, and Belmonte, who had to rise from the fifth seed, and win four matches, took advantage to score the win

the 21 year old Tackett said afterward, "I'm disapponted I didn't win, but it's an experience I'm going to learn from this and hopefully next time I can win."
