Semi-finals: Janet Monk 21, Rosie Winckle 15; Philippa Taylor 21, Lin Ruscoe 17

In a very close and exciting final Philippa raced to an early lead at 14-8. Janet then got the jack and won seven ends in a rowto have the advantage 19-14. It was Philippa’s turn to make a come-back, levelling at 19-19, before Janet scored two singles to run out the winner 21-19.

The presentation was made by Lynda Clarke who thanked all those who had stayed to watch the final. She also thanked Noble’s Mixed for the use of their green and facilities, the ladies for their work in the kitchen, those who ran the sheet or helped in any way with the successful running of the event.
