Rona and Jill opened the scoring with a single at the first before Veronica and Pat counter with a four in the next end. The gap was narrowed when Rona and Jill added 2 shots to there total at the third end. Veronica and pat then went on an amazing run of scoring adding 8 shots over 5 ends to lead by 12 shots to 3. Rona and Jill then had their run of scoring adding 6 shots over three ends to narrow the gap to 5 shots with the score 12 shots to 7 in Veronica and Pats favour who then increased their score by adding a massive 6 in the12th End to lead by 18 shots to 7. Veronica and Pat never added to their total from this point on whilst Ron and Jill kept plugging away playing some excellent bowls which and scored another 7 shots over the last five ends, and it should be said that during these ends they were lying more shots than they ended up getting after Pat McCallan had played her bowls to reduce the shots, which was not quite enough to overhaul their opponents and Veronica and Pat went on to win by 18 shot to 14 to win the Trophy.
