At Westgate Lanes in Brockton, MA on December 2, 2007: In a surprise appearance, 34-time PBA champion Mark Roth competed in his first NEBA tournament. After shooting 1066 on the Saturday squad, he earned a guaranteed spot off the last squad with 1158. Mark defeated Steve Wagoner 226-191 in the championship match to win the $3,000 top prize plus a paid entry into the Tournament of Champions. Steve, who was looking for his first title, won $1,700 for his runner-up finish. Thanks to Harry's Pub & Grill in Westgate Lanes and Liquid Advertising for adding $3,500 to the weekend's event. Also to Joe and Tom from Ebonite for the demo day and support throughout the year.
