Duke Claims Third Title Of '94

Norm Duke became a three-time winner on the 1994 PBA Tour and gained vengeance against third-seeded Bryan Goebel when he captured the $170,000 Brunswick Johnny Petraglia Open at Carolier Lanes. Leading qualifier Duke, Edmond, Okla., topped Goebel, Merriam, Kan., 244-211, who had upset Duke in the True Value Open finals 14 days earlier. It was Duke's seventh PBA crown and his $34,000 first prize pushed him back atop PBA's yearly earnings list.

Duke started the title game with a triple, while Goebel spared and answered with his own turkey. Duke then opened in his fourth frame, but rebounded with a five-bugger. Goebel didn't strike again until the 10th frame, but by then his fate and $18,000 runnerup check had already been determined.

"This rematch was what fans wanted and it's good for bowling," Duke said afterward. "I felt Bryan had the advantage in having bowled earlier on the pair. I made a few mistakes today, but fortunately got away with them (which wasn't the case when Duke's 280 game two weeks earlier had failed against Goebel 296 effort, leaving Duke with the highest losing score in PBA's 33-year televised history).

The ABC Sports' telecast began with local favorite Parker Bohn III defeating 1991 PBA Player of the Year David Ozio, Vidor, Texas, 201-147. Bohn, Jackson, N.J., then bowed to Goebel, 200-184. In the semifinal game, Goebel bettered two-time PBA Player of the Year Amleto Monacelli of Venezuela, 219-196. Monacelli earned $10,000 for third place, Bohn received $8,000-for fourth and Ozio $6,500.

Tournament namesake Johnny Petraglia, who thrilled the nation with his perfect game at the PBA National Championship one week earlier, finished 26th and missed qualifying for the match play finals by just four pins. He also bowled alongside movie star Michael J. Fox In kicking off the event's celebrity Pro-Am. A total of $19,000 from the tournament's proceeds was pledged toward the N.J. Tournament of Champions and local cancer research and blood disorder charities.
