Big Dog John Handegard won
another Ebonite Senior Tour title at Copperfield Bowl in Houston. Underdog David
Zappitelli showed that he could run with the Big Dogs finished second. Zap just bowled
great and was the leader going into the final match. Handegard struck out in the tenth
frame forcing Zap to double. Zap's first ball was wide of the target giving Handegard the
win. We all pity the poor bowlers in Plano, they will have to wear ear plugs for a month!
Gary Dickinson was third, Jim Ensminger fourth, and Rick Miner fifth.
The lanes were flying on both sides. Good shots projected away from the pocket were
required, no tug. It was heaven for the speed ballers.
