TORE TORGERSEN CAPTURES HIS SECOND IRISH OPEN TITLE.

5

Twenty-one years after his first victory, Tore Torgersen of Norway captured his second career Irish Open title with a 503-415 victory over Keira Reay of Ireland Sunday at Leisureplex Stillorgan in Dublin. It marks the fifth win on the European Bowling Tour for the former world and European champion and the first since the 2014 Norwegian Open.
In the title match over two games total pins, Torgersen (right), who won his first title in Ireland back in 1996, took an insurmountable 86-pin lead after the first game (267 to 181, including eight pins handicap for Reay) and never looked back.

Though Reay (left) rebounded with 234, Torgersen beat her by two pins to seal the victory. The winner took home the 5.000 Euro top prize, while Reay earned 2.500 Euro for second place. Reay was looking for her first EBT title and the third consecutive by a woman on the European Bowling Tour after Diana Zavjalova in Qatar (2016) and Daphne Tan in Helsinki (2017).
