Jenny Corn with Pat Gagg (both Lillington), County President, Joy Cooke (Blossomfield) and Heather Mills (Grange Ladies) started confidently but were dominated by the opposition in the middle half of the game before they came back strongly to finish just one shot adrift at 18-19.

Moira Parsons with Wendy Holloway (both Welford), Velisa Brown (Southam) and Trish Jarvis (Wolvey) were level pegging at the 5th end 4 all, but struggled to keep it going until the 18th end when 4 shots followed by 3 on the 19th helped their cause and they finished 15-22.

Sue Hornsby (Lillington) with Lynne Innes (Stratford), Sharon Keal (Snitterfield) and Aleen Shuttleworth (Stoke) were not so fortunate as their opponents showed no mercy and they finished 7-33.
