Western District League (Ladies)

Burnham 51, Victoria (Weston) 33

WELL, what a match this turned out to be – five ends to play and two rinks in the lead. The third rink was some six shots adrift and things not looking too good. Then a supercharge of 10 shots without reply saw a four-shot win to secure full house for Burnham.

Points: Burnham 10, Victoria (Weston) 0. Scores: Jill Burman, Anne Richards, Rita Harris 16-12; Christine Shephard, Brenda Bowdler, Joan Hurling 16-12; Marion Strong, Sylvia Lupton, Joan Hazelton 19-11.
