CENTREVILLE, Va. – With the weight of his team on his shoulders, Wes Malott survived 11 rounds to win the 2020 PBA League All-Star Clash in a show that aired Sunday.

Malott, the anchor for the Portland Lumberjacks, was able to secure the $50,000 top prize, some of which was given to his teammates, at Bowlero Centreville.

Each round of the special event featured a one-shot format with the low score eliminated. In the final round, Malott was handed a gift when PBA Hall of Famer Norm Duke went high and left the 4-6-7 split.

Needing just eight pins or better for the win, Malott stepped up and left a 10 pin to celebrate with his teammates.

“In this type of format, it can really go anyway,” Malott said. “To know that I have (my teammates) supporting me on the sidelines in this particular environment – I wouldn’t want it any other way. This win is for all of us.”

The event featured players from all 12 teams in the PBA League. The player on each team with the highest number of career titles competed in the special event.

Danielle McEwan, one of two women in the PBA League All-Star Clash, finished third. A strike in Round 10 would have allowed her to advance but instead she went high and left the 3-6. That allowed Duke, who had gotten nine on his shot, to survive and advance.

The PBA League All-Star Clash was the final event scheduled in 2020 for the PBA Tour.
