-Davidson Continues To Triumph At $50,000 Las Cruces New Mexico Open

11/01/2001 - PWBA
      LAS CRUCES, N.M. - In spite of a tough fifth round, Dede Davidson stayed on top of the leader board after 34 games of competition at the $50,000 Las Cruces New Mexico Open. The 17-year pro closed out the day session with a 7,650 total pin fall, a 215.29 average and a 3-5 record (Editor's note - players earn 30 bonus pins for each match won during match play rounds).

      "I had a hard time this morning finding the right path to the pins," said the Las Vegas, Nevada native. "It seemed like today my shot hung less and didn't have the kind of hold I've had over the last three to four rounds. I can't believe I'm still on top."

      Davidson jumped to the front of the field after a perfect 8-0 in match play record in round four. The seven-time titlest is 218 pins ahead of Carolyn Dorin-Ballard (7,432, 209.32), N. Richland Hills, Texas. Dorin-Ballard, who leads in the PWBA this season in titles (6), earning ($105,870)), competition points (15,035) and averages (214.80), and is attempting to qualify for her 17th televised final in 21 tournaments.

      In third place is Tish Johson. Along with Davidson and Australia's Cara Honeychurch, Johnson is one of three left-handers among the top five. Currently she is 64-pins (7,368, 208.56) behind Dorin-Ballard. The California girl is seeking her 25th title and this week is competing in her 216th consecutive tournament.

      After leading in rounds two and three, Honeychurch sits in fourth with 7,359 and 209.38. The Aussie was the one of two players to finish today's round with a winning match play record (5-3). In addition to Honeychurch, fifth place Kelly Kulick, Union, N.J. also went 5-3 helping increase her totals to 7,299 and 207.61.

      Kulick's hold on the fifth position is by 49 pins over reigning Las Cruces New Mexico champion Kim Adler who closed today with 7,250 and 204.85. Just off the pace within 164-pins or less of the fifth slot are Wendy Macpherson (7,235, 202.20), Henderson, Nevada, Carol Gianotti-Block (7,229, 206.44), Australia, Anne Marie Duggan (7,152, 202.41), Edmond Oklahoma and Tammy Turner (7,135, 203.67), Ogden, Utah.

      Tournament action resumes tonight at 6:30 p.m. as the top 24 go at it with one more eight-game block of match play. At the conclusion of match play, the top five bowlers compete on Thursday at 7 p.m. in the championship rounds. ESPN2 will tape the championships and later broadcast them on Monday, November 5 at 8 p.m. and November 11 at 2:00 a.m. ESPN will carry the finals on November 6 at 2:30 p.m. (all times are EST).
