With a late surge on Sunday, Europe beat the U.S. for the fifth straight time in the Just Eat Weber Cup, bowling’s equivalent of the Ryder Cup.

The Weber Cup in great reports on its website and Facebook page detailed how the U.S. tied the competition 11-11 early Sunday before Europe surged to a 19-12 win in the 18th Weber Cup.

The “killer blow” was Jesper Svensson beating Marshall Kent, Weber Cup reported in this story that details the final session.

Here is a video interview with the European players — Dom Barrett, Martin Larsen, Jesper Svensson and Stuart Williams — after the win.

The Weber Cup featured one session on Friday, two on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

The U.S. Team was Sean Rash, E.J. Tackett, Marshall Kent, and Kyle Troup.

Because I own a rental home in Cape Coral, Florida, I was glued to the Weather Channel, along with the NFL and college football, this weekend, so I didn't watch any Weber Cup. But I DVR'd Sunday's session on DirecTV Channel 623 and look forward to watching it later this week.
