    Zara Glover of England won her second career European ranking title when she defeated Finn Sami Konsteri two-games-to-none in the championship match of the San Marino Open. Glover who won Oltremare Championships in 2004, didn't need her eight pins handicap to win the first game 236-198 but counted on one pin for a 240-239 in game two. English players dominated the finals as Glover's compatriots Nick Froggatt and Stuart Williams finished third and fourth. The European Bowling Tour will take a short break before heading to Vienna, Oct. 19-23, for the Columbia 300 Vienna Open.

    Roberto Ceccarelli leads top 45 into San Marino Open finals

     Roberto Ceccarelli remained unchallenged during the final three squads on Saturday en route to win the qualifying in the San Marino Open. The Italian felled 1470 pins an averaged 245 over six games. Osku Palermaa of Finland shot 1419 in the penultimate squad to jump into third place. Stefano Coppa and Luciano Lambertini tied for 45th place with 1241 with Coppa advancing thanks to higher last game (188-170).

    The organizers faced an extremely disappointing turnout for the inaugural event - just 134 bowlers including 18 women (six made the cut) from mere nine countries participated, the lowest figures for this year's European Bowling Tour. It'll be interesting to see if the tournament's "major" status in 2006 will help them to become accepted.

    The top 45 players after qualifying will advance to the finals and will carry 50 per cent of their qualifying total forward. Those 45 will bowl 5 games to cut to the top 24. The entire pinfall will be carried forward into Round 2. The top 24 bowl four games to determine the top 8 for the single elimination match play finals.

    Match Play is best-of-three games match play format where bowlers are ranked based on the total pinfall after Round 2. The highest seeded player bowls the lowest seeded player, the second highest seeded player vs. the second lowest seeded player etc. After two rounds of head-to-head matches, the two remaining bowlers meet in the finals to vie for the title, the 10,000 Euro top prize and 50 ranking points.
