The best winning rink was John Cujic (skip), Doug Cooper, Ben Gilchrist, and Janice Dunston. They won 15 ends out of 25. They led for the entire game after the first end. It was 21 to eight at the break and the game finished with Alexandra 34 to Shep Park 17. A great team effort by all players, set up by excellent leading from Janice Dunston.

David Nicklos (skip), Bob Mayfield, Andy Tobias, Christine Mayfield were seven/nil down on end four but won the next two ends to lead eight to seven. It was nine all on end eight, 13 all on end 14. Alexandra won the next four ends to lead 21 to 13. Shepparton Park only trailed by five shots by end 22, but Alexandra had a comfortable win 27 to 20. Alexandra won 13 out of the 25 ends.
