It was a tough day for Marian Sandow’s rink with Jill Spillman and Nancy Warne. Rose Hearn tried to start the game, but was unfortunately too ill to play on, so had to retire, leaving the three girls to battle on. They were unsettled and didn’t score until the twelfth end. They won six of the last ten ends, so were competitive in the last half of the game. However, their disastrous first half combined with Jeanette Valente’s rink’s numerous multiples, saw Marian’s girls lose 10 shots to 33 shots.
Cathy Searle’s rink with Coral Partridge, Joylene Todd and Glenys Meyers won 20 shots to 19 shots against Faye Kemp’s rink. Cathy’s girls got off to a slow start and were down one shot to fourteen shots on the ninth end. However at this point they rallied, and won nine of the last twelve ends. On the eleventh end they scored seven shots which got the scores closer together and gave them confidence. Good comeback ladies.
