George Ashby wins a close one by just 2 points in the last game of the Finals, barely edging out Fred Lamers of Minneapolis in the Groundhog's Day event in Marshalltown.
Fred was undefeated going into the final game and George had but one loss. Fred only needed to get to 25 points in a 30 point match to secure the top spot. The score was 23 Fred - 21 George when the former National Champion ran an 8 to get him within 1 point of the win! Two innings later George scored the winning billiard. It was a great battle between two great players and shot-makers!
