In the final match of the round, the Glenelg team who have won the past two titles, proved too strong for the home side Blackwood 3.5 – 1.5.

Lorraine Brown won the first match of the day for Blackwood at number 5 and after Sally Graham held a 3 hole lead through nine over Sarah Griffiths and Angela Masters found herself in a close tussle with Jill Hodge, a major upset was on the cards.

However, Griffiths managed to fight back and claim her match 2&1 to square the ledger and Masters and Hodge halved, leaving it to the final two matches.

With the states top ranked player Jenny Lee at number 1 for Glenelg and state team member Elysia Yap at number 2, Glenelg’s top order proved too strong with Lee winning 10&8 and Yap 4&3.
