Ga Young Kim Wins WPBA Tour Championship!
Kim Defeats Hall of Famer Allison Fisher 7-5 in ESPN Televised Final
LINCOLN CITY, OR – After defeating Vivian Villarreal by a convincing 7-2 score in the semifinals of the WPBA Tour Championships, #1 ranked Ga Young Kim defeated Hall of Famer Allison Fisher 7-5 to take the tour’s culminating season title!

Fisher looked prime to be a favored contender against Kim after her sound defeat of Jeanette Lee 7-1 in her semifinal match. But Kim came on strong in the final match, opening with a two rack run. A scratch in the third rack put Fisher at the table to run out 2-1, and with a break and run quickly tied the match 2-2. Fisher then pulled ahead 3-2, only to be answered by another win from Kim to tie it up 3-3.

Ga Young Kim won the next three racks to lead 6-3, just one game away from the title, but Allison fought back with a clever masse in game ten, followed by a break and run to trail 5-6. She broke, played safe on the one, but left Ga Young Kim a long cut shot. Kim made the cut and ran out to take the game, match and title victory!
