American Bowling Congress Fall Classic



$150,000 AMERICAN BOWLING CONGRESS FALL CLASSIC
Red Carpet Celebrity Lanes, Milwaukee, Wis., Nov 19-24, 1990

Bohn's Win Easy As A-B-C

1, 2, 3, A B C. Things seemed to flow that easily for Parker Bohn III, who earned his third title of 1990 in the $150,000 American Bowling Congress Fall Classic at Red Carpet Celebrity Lanes. Bohn, Freehold, N.J., picked up the $27,000 first prize with a 213-200 triumph over second-seeded Kelly Coffman of Topeka, Kan. Additionally, he received a 14-carat gold ring "trophy" adorned with 18 diamonds.

The physically Imposing Coffman (6-2, 240 lbs.) possessed the power to overwhelm Bohn, as he had PBA career earnings leader Marshall Holman in the semifinal game, 208-186. But leading qualifier Bohn opened with a double in the championship game, and Coffman struggled to consistently hit the right-hander's pocket. Bohn did find himself down early in the game after chopping the 9-pin off a 3-9 leave in the fourth frame, while Coffman doubled. But the left-handed Bohn came back with a strike of his own, opened again when he failed to convert the 3-7-9 leave, and then tripled to close out Coffman.

In the opening game of the NBC-televised championship round, Houston's Pete McCordic defeated Bob Benoit of Topeka, Kan., 257-180, in a battle of the last two players to have recorded 300 games on national TV. McCordic then lost to Holman, 196-194, when he missed a 4-pin in his 10th frame, needing just the spare to advance. Holman's second life didn't rejuvenate him against the 25-year-old Coffman, as he tossed back-to-back gutter balls in his second frame and never recovered.
