The Deni team held the opposition to ‘ones’ for the majority of the encounter, finishing the day in front 25-14.

Fay Munnerley’s team of Jo Bovell, Lyn Smith and Winnie Pattinson had a close game from the start and were level on the 11th end and again on the 23rd end, but scored a ‘two’ and a ‘one’ to finish three up, 23-20.

Vicki O’Keefe’s team of Joy McArthur, Dawn McCulloch and Aileen Kennedy took the lead at the sixth end and drew away to be leading 21-10 at the 19th when the opposition came back strongly and took the lead. O’Keefe’s rink were down by three shots with two ends to go when they scored two ‘ones’ to go down by one shot, leaving Deniliquin with a 13-shot victory overall.
