WPBA Championship Final Four

Kim vs. Villarreal and Lee vs. Fisher in next round's semifinal action 
LINCOLN CITY, OR - After three days of stellar play, the 48 player WPBA Tour Championships have been whittled down to the best four 9-Ball players this week at Chinook Winds Event Center. Semi final #1 between Ga Young Kim and the "Texas Tornado" Vivian Villarreal will take place in front of the ESPN cameras at 1:00 p.m. Semi final #2 will feature Jeanette Lee vs. Allison Fisher at 3:00 p.m. And the championship will conclude with the final match at 5:00 p.m.
Today's first ESPN televised quarterfinal match featured a showdown between Canada's North American Junior Champion Brittany Bryant and Korea's Ga Young Kim. Bryant was no match for the multiple Tour Championship titlist this time out; Kim won the match with a convincing 7-2 final score.
In quarterfinal #2, the "Texas Tornado" Vivian Villarreal eked out a narrow win over Great Britain's Kim Shaw, 7-6.
Then it was a battle between friends Helena Thornfeldt of Sweden, and USA's best-known player, the "Black Widow" Jeanette Lee, where Lee got the best of Thornfeldt in a squeaker 7-6 victory.
In the final quarterfinal match of the day, legendary British born Allison Fisher, a BCA Hall of Famer and winner of more career titles than any player (male or female) in history, faced off against New York's finest -- Jennifer Barretta. In another close match, Fisher emerged the victor, 7-5.
