The Northeast Amateur Tournament, in its updated newsletter, reported Bill Briggs as the winner of the One-Ball event last Sunday at Westgate Lanes after defeating George Boudreau, 239-237 (with handicap), in the final match. The rules of the event required that the same ball be used for first ball and all spares, with re-entries allowed to change balls (but still the same ball in the re-entry squad). Bill Briggs used a Brunswick LT-48 (the re-issue) in his winning effort. Bill was just over a month removed from a Bay State Open doubles win with Tina Gannon at Westgate Lanes.

EDIT: Forgot to add the other Westgate cashers, as I usually do with tournaments at Westgate: Jim Ferguson, Mark Zimmerman, Chris Mark, Mike Litchfield (who was the defending one-ball champ), Eric Lam, Al Donato, and Danny Khuu.
