Spigner Reigns Over Roses

Bill Spigner fought off newcomer Mark Williams by two pins to earn his first PBA title since 1978 in the $95,000 City of Roses Open in Portland, Ore.

Spigner overtook qualifying leader Earl Anthony in match play and prevailed by 180 pins over Paul Moser going into the championship round. Moser lost the opportunity to face Spigner in the finale, leaving a 4-6 split in the 10th frame to lose by five pins to Williams in the semi-final game.

The 23-year-old Williams put the pressure on Spigner with strikes in the third through seventh frame. Needing 19 pins in the 10th frame to win, Spigner converted a 2-4-5 spare and rolled a strike for a 237-235 victory and the $12,000 top prize for his third career championship.
