David Thorne’s rink found themselves 1-5 down after 6 ends but the away side were then restricted to only 3 more shots  as Town won by 19 shots. Eric Fitch’s trio were only 7-4 up at the break but a run of 10 shots in the next 4 ends made the difference. Keith Baston’s rink was involved in a much tighter affair  as a 5-0 lead was lost as the visitors came back to lead 10-16 with 4 ends to play. Town then dug in to gain 8 shots in the last 4 ends and pull the game out of the fire, winning by 2 shots.
