In the MIXED PAIRS Chantal Spencer & Jonathan West against Barbra Lewis and Chris Moore always looked in control and at 16 ends held the lead by 16 shots to 11. But wait a minute with Jonathan with his last bowl in hand on the 17th end was 5 down. With him running down the rink shouting at it, it picked up the jack and made 4 shots, “Great bowl Jonathan”. Dropping 4 on the last end the rink score ended 20 shots to 15 in Lincoln’s favour.

Looking across the rinks at this stage the MIXED TRIPLES of Louise Catchpole, Dean Stevenson and Billy Jackson v V Hobart, B Hobart & J Dawson after been 12-1 down at 6 ends were trailing 5-12 after 8 ends.
With the MIXED RINKS of Rachel Jackson, Lin Mountain, Richard Ashton & Kevin Rands v M Warren, C Locking, M Davies & D Delahay making a comeback from 6-13 down at 10 ends to pull level at 16 ends to 14 shots all. The game looked as if it was possibly going down to shot difference. Unless the rinks could win the remaining 2 ends.
As the nerves captain looked on the rinks did the business picking up a 3 and a 1 winning the rink 18-14, winning 7 of the last 8 ends.
