1. Marlene Armitage, Sandra Lake, Marilyn Dunkley & Jan Hunt, Wellingborough BC beat Nicky Hardy, Celia Morris, Di Brumwell & Hilary Sharpe 15-14 shots

This was a very closely contested match for the first third, with the cores level at 4 shots each after 6 ends, but things changed thereafter in the second third, for after picking up a count of 3 on the 7th end, the Wellingborough rink was kept on 7 for 6 ends whilst Kingsthorpe collected 9 shots for a 13-7 lead. A good pick up of 4 on the next end, followed by a single, gave Jan and her ladies a boost to be just 1 shot in arrears, and after dropping a single to Hilary & her ladies on the 16th end, they won the last 2 ends for the narrowest of wins

2. Jenny Dempsey, Simone Evans, Viv Gaudyn & Rose Houghton, Higham Ferrers Town BC beat Sandra Mawson, Pat Bodily, Yvonne McKee & Sharon Tansley, Kingsthorpe BC 18-6 shots

The score in this match was 2 each after 4 ends, but then the Higham rink won the next 3 ends for an 8-2 lead, and then after dropping a double on the 8th end, they won the next two ends with doubles for a lead of 12-4 with 8 ends to play of the scheduled 18. Kingsthorpe collected a double on the next end, but they could score no more as Rose & her ladies collected 6 shots for a 12 shots lead and at that point Sharon and her ladies shook hands and conceded the match.

3. Catherine Gray, Chris Cooper, Maggie Lewis & Tina Broderick, Burton Latimer Town BC beat Shirley Salado, Linda Clasby, Elaine Munton & Wen Hill, Northampton Whyte Melville BC 19-10 shots

After conceding 2 shots on the first end, the Burton Latimer rink won the next 3 ends with doubles on each for a lead at 6-2, and after dropping another double on the next end they won 3 more in succession to increase their lead to 10-4. The next 6 ends went much more in Whyte Melville’s favour as they scored 5 shots to 2 conceded, to reduce their deficit to just 3 at 9-12 down, but a big 4 to Tina & her ladies on the 15th end reinstated their lead and after dropping a single on the 16th end, they were able to win the last 2 ends for a decent victory.

4. Linda Simms, Sue Briggs, Pat Starsmore & Audrey Height, Kettering Lodge BC beat Margaret Fairs, Annette Norris, Eleanor Winters & Wilma Walker, Corby Forest BC 23-10 shots

In this contest Kettering Lodge started very well and after 5 ends were 6-1 up, but Corby Forest picked up a 3 on the 6th end, dropped a 2 on the 7th, and collected another 3 on the 8th end to be just 1 shot adrift at 7-8, but after 10 ends Kettering Lodge had collected 5 more shots for a decent 13-7 lead, and after dropping a single on the 11th, they won the next 5 ends and added 10 shots for a 23-8 lead with 2 ends only left to play. Wilma & her ladies collected a single on the 17th end, and although there was just 1 end left to play and they were 14 shots adrift, that 18th end was played with another single to Corby Forest.
