Lite Beer Championship



$150,000 LITE BEER CHAMPIONSHIP
Red Carpet Celebrity Lanes, Milwaukee, Wis., Feb 24-Mar 1, 1986

Genalo Sees Lite

Don Genalo held off a determined bid by tour great Mark Roth to capture the $150,000 Lite Beer Championship Genalo, top-seeded into the final game of the nationally televised finals, emerged with a 214-209 victory over Roth, who had eliminated two other opponents in an effort to win his 33rd PBA title.

Joining Genalo and Roth in the finals were two non-titlists, Jeff Bellinger and Walter Ray Williams Jr. world champion horseshoe pitcher, along with Brian Voss.

Voss notched a three-bagger in the first game with Bellinger to earn a regulation 211 tie and he then won a two frame rolloff, 40-39, to earn the right to meet Roth. That effort went for naught as Roth downed Voss, 245-169. Roth's next opponent was Williams, but the Californian also was no match for Roth, whose six game-ending strikes resulted in a 236-211 victory.

Along with David Ozio, Vidor, Texas, who won the first leg of the Lite Slam in Miami, Fla., Genalo had an opportunity to win a bonus of $50,000 if either captured the $150,000 Lite Open in Cleveland.
