In the 5th we faced the horror of losing a 6 but managed to cut this to 2 with the measure being brought out to determine whose stone was sitting second. The sixth end saw Gary place two stones on the button, between two opposing stones, each time only to see the opposing second knock them both away, showing real accuracy in her play. Mark played a tight draw with the last stone to clinch two points and give KCDC a glimmer of hope for the final end.
The house was packed with stones as the skips set up to play their final stones and, with Abercorn lying shot, KCDC had to play a risky shot to go for the victory, unfortunately it didn't come off and the Abercorn skip drew in for three points with the final shot of the match. Hands were shaken, drinks consumed and all parties agreed that the match was closer than the scoreline suggested and was a thoroughly enjoyable game
