Pauleen Dimos played “catch up” in her very tough match against Bev Fyfe (Lake Cargelligo). Pauleen scored one shot in the first end, before long, Bev had a strong hold on this match, up 14-7.

Gradually one shot at a time, 18-18, then 20-20, Pauleen then scores two shots followed by another three shots to win 25-20. Into the next round to play Tanya Chaffey (Temora Exies). A good start for both players, after seven ends 7-7, as the Match progressed
