Results

The Ladies Final was played at the same time as the Gent's Final keeping the many spectators enthralled. This was between Sandra Marriott and Jackie Mayhew against Lyn Band and Jean Smallwood. Lyn and Jean's husbands were playing in the Gent's final. The ladies final was a repeat of last year's final when Lyn and Jean were the victors. Sandra and Jackie started off the stronger but Lyn and Jean fought back gallantly and after 9 ends were only 3 shots behind. After 17 ends Lyn and Jean were only 1 shot behind but on the last end Jean bowled 2 fantastic woods moving the jack to within 6 inches of the ditch resulting with a toucher in the ditch leaving them holding 2 shots and a match winning position. Sandra, with her last wood, cut it down to 1 shot leaving the match all square which would result in an extra tie break end. Jackie, however, with the very last wood of the 18 ends bowled what can only be described as the perfect bowl firstly resting on the jack and then both jack and wood gently dropped into the ditch giving them the match by 2 shots. Absolutely fantastic. Many congratulations to Sandra and Jackie who got their reward after last year's final. Commiserations to Lyn and Jean but a great final.
