As posted above by NEBA, Westgate’s Jim Ferguson won his 2nd title by defeating Gary Haines 60-49 in a 9th & 10th frame roll-off to capture the 123Bowl.com Open yesterday at East Providence Lanes.
In the final match, Jim was in some trouble after missing a 10 pin, followed in the next frame by a split, but momentum swung back his way after Haines left a 6-8-10 (lefty), and the door was left open for Jim to tie the match after a screaming messenger by Haines missed the 7, after which Jim punched out in the 10th to force the roll-off. Counting the roll-off, Jim threw the last nine strikes of the match.
Plenty of video here, starting with the final match:

Congrats again Jimmy! 🙂
