Great Semi-Final Line-up

by Bob Johnson 0

GREAT SEMI-FINAL LINE-UP
It was all done and dusted for the top three as the second stage of the finals drew to a close, with Jensen dominating from Guerrero and Penny, but it was an all-Swedish battle for that vital fourth place as Helen Johnsson and Joline Persson-Planefors were nip and tuck through to the tenth frame, Persson-Planefors getting the nod with a more successful tenth frame.

So the line-uop for the best of three game semi-finals  is Mai Ginge Jensen (Denmark) versus Joline Persson-Planefors (Sweden) on lanes 5 & 6.

Clara Guerrero (Colombia) versus Kirsten Penny (England) on lanes 9 & 10.

The winners of each semi-final match will play a further best of three games on lanes 7 & 8.

Bob Johnson

Bob Johnson has received more national writing awards than any other bowling writer — close to 70 over the course of his 40-year career. He began at age 16 as a staff writer and then assistant editor for the weekly Pacific Bowler newspaper in his native California, and within three years was writing feature stories for Bowlers Journal. He has written for the magazine ever since, except for a five-year span when he was hired as the founding editor of another magazine. He moved to Chicago in 2000 and spent 13 years in the Windy City, including five as Bowlers Journal’s Editor. In 1975, Johnson received the Robert E. Kennedy Award as California’s top undergraduate high school journalist. Five years earlier, on the lanes, he had shared the Bantam Division Doubles championship in the Orange County Junior Bowling Association Championships. Today, he continues to work full-time for Bowlers Journal as its Senior Editor, to write his popular “Strikes Me” column, and to edit Luby Publishing Inc.’s weekly business-to-business Cyber Report.
