Ralph Tiplady’s team opened decently to lead 7-0 after four ends but the home side knocked the stuffing out of them with a crucial seven on the tenth end to go in front and they were never headed in a 24-15 success.

At home, Barry Johnson’s side picked up a single then a three on their last end to secure a 19-19 draw.

The team led by Paul Dawson needed a four on their last end to get a draw, but only picked up a two and went down 21-19.
