Lilian was imperious in the final taking the first four ends and a lead of 12-6 before Shirley put a 2 on the board. Lilian raced to 19-9 before Shirley tried to stem the tide with another 2. However it was too little too late as Lilian finished it with a 2 the following end to win 21-11.

The presentation was made by Heather Horsburgh who thanked all those who had entered, those who had stayed to watch the final and those who had helped in the smooth running of the afternoon.
