Valley Lanes, Portland, Ore., Jun 11-14, 1970

Glover Dons Another

One of the closest battles ever . . . that's the wrapup of the Portland Open at Valley Lanes, second tournament on the summer swing. For sure, Don Glover, the little left-hander out of Bakersfield, Calif., won't soon forget the proceedings which saw him finally win out over a persistent Earl Anthony, who was seeking to win his second tournament in as many weeks. When it was all over, Glover was the winner, but by only 26 pins after Anthony defeated him, 236-210, in the final game of the tourney.

At various points in the Portland Open, such as Ed Bourdase, Butch Gearhart, Dave Soutar and Mike McGrath were the leaders, but Glover, eighth at the start of match play, took eight of his first nine and took over the lead. In the windup session-seven more head to head contests-Don took only two, but had built up enough of a lead to hold on for his triumph and the $3,000 winner's check.

Third place, behind Anthony, went to Alex Seymore, with Soutar finishing fourth and Marty Piraino rounding out the top five.
