This was another disappointing result for the Arches. coming on the back of the defeat the previous Saturday against Pendine, with Gerald skipping the only winning rink to gain the two points. This game was played out on rink one against Richard Hissey and his men. At the tea break, the Arches four were trailing by 13 shots to nine, by end 16 the deficit was six shots. The G Men then produced a superb finish, winning the last five ends and picking up 11 shots in the process, to win 25 shots to 20.
Rink two saw Dai and his rink drawn against Richard Jones and his men. This was a game of two halves, as at the 10-end break, the Arches four were leading 13 shots to five, but after tea, the opposition went into overdrive. picking up 12 shots over the next six ends to lead 17 shots to 13. The remaining ends also went the way of the Dock, seeing them pick up another nine shots to the Arches' five. On rink four, the captain's rink had another disappointing day, up against the wily Brian Dowling and his men.
