What a final! The Ladies first final against Angaston was a squash buckling finish as never seen before! After the last end Eudunda and Angaston were drawn, so an extra end was played by each of the three rinks; two of the rinks had a two shots up/two shots down result; all eyes were on the umpire when called to the third rink for a very close measure which was declared equal, so drawn again! A further extra end was played in which Angaston emerged the winner by two shots! Result Eudunda 58, Angaston 60, which ended Eudunda’s finals’ aspirations. The Judy Milde/Judy Argent match 24-16, Pat Obst/Eileen Argent 20-17 and Joy Hams/Mavis Elsworthy 14/27. The Eudunda Ladies invited the Angaston Ladies for lunch at the Light Hotel, where a great atmosphere pervaded, continuing on from the game which was played in good spirit.
