On the second rink Lynda Simms and Carrick’s M. McCausland fought out what developed into an exciting 18 ends. Ably abetted by M. Hardy, S. McDermott and J. Spiers Lynda led four shots to one after the third end, trailed 16 - 15 after 12 ends. They then led 21 - 19, but were behind 24 - 21 going into the final end. A five-bowl lie settled the game in favour of Curran.
