Moore falls in Bells Beach final

Hawaii's Carissa Moore lost to Sally Fitzgibbons of Australia in the final round of the Rip Curl Women's Pro Bells Beach in Victoria, Australia, this morning.

"We've had a lot of good clashes last year and this year, and her win's been a long time coming, so congrats to her," Moore said in an ASP release. "Of course I would have liked to have rung the Bell, but that may have to happen next year."

Hawaii's Coco Ho lost to Fitzgibbons, 20, in the quarterfinals, 18.56-14.53.
