Golob holds on to Bianchi Cup lead, Koenig is within striking distance as newcomer Norris makes his move

Columbia, Missouri -
With one event left for competitors to shoot, today's scores will determine who goes home with the title of Champion. As the morning began, Julie Golob led the Ladies Division with reigning Women's Champ Jessie Duff close behind in second. After both women completed Moving Target, their final event, Golob had maintained her lead over Duff and put her in place for a third championship title.
The men, however, have yet to shoot their final events. Who falls behind and who pulls ahead will most likely be determined on the Moving Target event. As the competition nears, defending champion Doug Koenig and Italy's Andrea Moroni are neck and neck. It will be up to Koenig, and his performance on the course, that decide whether or not he holds on to his championship title.
In the Metallic Division, just a few points separate Marc Kleser, Phil Strader, Rob Vadasz and Bruce Piatt. That will make this afternoon's Moving Target event all the more important as they attempt to separate themselves from the pack. Newcomer B.J. Norris currently sits atop the leaderboard in the Production Division followed closely by Enoch Smith and Bruce Gray — their final stages will be of paramount importance.
Keep checking back as the most important shots of the day will be heading down range soon. In a few hours, we'll officially know who will go home with the title of 2012 MidwayUSA & NRA Bianchi Cup Champion.
