Chasing Anthony

by PBA Editor December 9, 2004 19:00
Walter Ray Williams Jr. will get another shot at tying Earl Anthony’s Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour career titles record. Fittingly, he’ll try to do it in the event named after the man with 41 career titles. Williams, Ocala, Fla., defeated Michael Haugen Jr., Las Vegas, four-games-to-two Friday to advance to the championship round of the PBA Earl Anthony Medford Classic at Lava Lanes. Williams, who is making his third championship round appearance this season, won his 40th career title earlier this season in the PBA Uniroyal Tire Classic. “A couple of years ago I didn’t think this could happen but now there is a pretty good chance that it will happen,” said Williams, who with a win would capture multiple titles for the fifth consecutive season. “I still have to win two matches and there are some great bowlers that I am going to have to beat to do it.” Williams has now advanced to the championship round in the last three PBA Tour events named after the man whose record he is chasing. Norm Duke, Clermont, Fla., advanced to the championship round for the second consecutive week, as he defeated Brian Himmler, Cincinnati, 4-1. Duke will be looking to win his 22nd career title, which would put him in a tie for 9th place on the all-time titles list. Duke will face Brad Angelo, Lockport, N.Y., who is making his second championship round appearance this season. Angelo, last season’s PBA World Point Rankings leader, will be looking to win his first career title. In the second semi-final, Williams will face Mike Wolfe, New Albany, Ind., who defeated Amleto Monacelli, Venezuela, 4-0. Wolfe will also be looking to capture his first career title. The final four will bowl for the $40,000 top prize and an exemption for the 2005-06 PBA Tour season on Sunday. ESPN will air the final round live at 10 a.m. PT.

Duke Sweeps His Way Into Round of 32

by PBA Editor December 8, 2004 19:00
Norm Duke threw three strikes in the final frame to win game four and defeat D.J. Archer, four games-to-none, in the round of 64 Thursday in the PBA Earl Anthony Medford Classic at Lava Lanes. Archer, Dallas, struck out in the 10th frame forcing Duke to strike with his first two shots and throw a nine-count with his third shot for the victory. Duke, Clermont, Fla., responded with three perfect strikes to win game four, 248-246, and advance into the round of 32. “In that scenario, any pro can come back and beat you three games in a row,” Duke said. “If you give them any momentum they’ll take advantage. I didn’t want to let him back in the match. If I had missed there, he probably would have bowled 240 the rest of the way. It was a bigger shot than it looked to everyone. I knew he was dialing in. I thought, ‘If you don’t get these, you’ll have a long day.’” Mike Wolfe, New Albany, Ind., advanced into the round of 32 by defeating Ryan Shafer, Elmira, N.Y., 4-3, while Amleto Monacelli, Venezuela, defeated David Traber, Bull Valley, Ill., 4-3. Both Wolfe and Monacelli came back from 0-3 deficits to win their respective matches. In other action, Michael Fagan, Greenlawn, N.Y., advanced by defeating Hugh Miller, Seattle, 4-0, and will face Steve Jaros, Yorkville, Ill., Friday morning. Jaros advanced by defeating Jim Pratt, Glendale, Ariz., 4-3. Match play continues tonight at 6 p.m. with the remaining 16 matches in the round of 64. Match play is a single-elimination, best-of-seven format. The 32 winners will advance to the round of 32 tomorrow at 10 a.m. ESPN will televise the four-man finals live from Lava Lanes Sunday, Dec. 12, from 10 – 11:30 a.m. PST.

Weber Wipes Out Holman

by PBA Editor December 8, 2004 19:00
– Pete Weber swept Marshall Holman four-games-to-none Thursday in a battle of PBA Hall of Famers to advance to the round of 32 in the PBA Earl Anthony Medford Classic at Lava Lanes. Weber, St. Ann, Mo., a 31-time PBA Tour titlist, swept a match in the best-of-seven match play format for the first time this season, defeating the 22-time titlist Holman, who was given the Commissioner’s Exemption for this week’s event. Holman, Medford, Ore., had a chance to win game four by striking out, but left a 1-2-4-6-10 washout in the 10th frame to give Weber the 224-216 win. “Marshall and I go way back, I’ve known him since I was 12. We’ve had some close matches and some blowouts,” said Weber, who won last season’s PBA Medford Open. “I thought the ball he threw in the 10th was good, but it just skidded and didn’t pick his roll up. It was an honor and a privilege to bowl against Marshall here.” Weber, the No. 7 seed, who has yet to advance past the round of 16 this season, will face No. 26 Robert Smith, Thousand Oaks, Calif., in Friday’s round of 32. Also advancing to the round of 32 were No. 1 Walter Ray Williams Jr., Ocala, Fla., who came back from 0-2 down to defeat amateur Shawn Copeland, 4-2, Milwaukie, Ore., and No. 3 Patrick Allen, Tarrytown, N.Y., who came back from 1-3 down to defeat qualifier Kevin Croucher, Grants Pass, Ore., 4-3. Croucher needed to double in the 10th to win the match, but left a 9 pin to give Allen the 191-189 game seven win. The round of 32 begins Friday at 10 a.m., followed by the round of 16 at 2:30 p.m. and the round of 8 at 7 p.m. The final four will bowl for the $40,000 top prize and an exemption for the 2005-06 PBA Tour season on Sunday. ESPN will air the final round on Sunday, Dec. 12 at 10 a.m. PT.
