A veritable seesaw of a match had spectators fearing to take bets on the outcome of the final
between Jayne Smith, Robyn Hames and Ngaire Bruce and Joy Boyd, Liz Burton and Margie Sorensen.
Jayne and her team took the early lead, but by the 8th end the opposition had surged ahead until giving away 5 points, but immediately responding with a 4 on the following end. The two skips forced the scoreboard to favour red then green throughout the match until the final 18th end when Joy, Liz and Margie took 3 more points to take the match.
