Frost Freezes Mcgrath

Scott Frost

Rob and Heather Williams, owners of Racks On The Rocks in West Peoria, IL, were the hosts of the $40,000 Champions 8 Ball Challenge.

Played on seven foot Diamonds, it was a race to 80 over the course of three days. The format was winner breaks and take what you make.

So, after weeks of online woofing, Scott Frost and Bobby McGrath finally teed it up!

Scott opened up by winning the first eight games and from there it was pretty much back and forth. That head start, however, proved to be tough to overcome. Day One ended with a score of 30-21 Scott.

Day Two finished with Scott extending his lead by four more games – 60-47. He continued to extend his lead on Day Three as he closed out the match 80-60.

Congratulations to Scott for a convincing win! Well played, Bobby!
