Anchorage’s Sean Rash became his own Cinderella story Friday at the PBA’s Earl Anthony Memorial Classic in Dublin, Calif.

After finishing 23rd among 63 pro bowlers in qualifying, Rash mowed down three higher seeds in the single-elimination money rounds to advance to the semifinals and earn some face time on ESPN.

Rash’s highlight was knocking off No. 2 seed Jason Belmonte (the two-handed roller) 4-2 in the best-of-7 series in the Elite Eight. The Alaskan lost the first two games before rallying to win the next four straight, including a 245-237 victory in game 3 and a 240-223 victory in game 4.

Rash also upset No. 10 Michael Haugen Jr. and No. 7 John Nolen on his way to the semis.

Rash, a four-time PBA champion, will be in action live on ESPN Sunday morning.
