The game was an extremely close affair with singles being exchanged on the first 5 ends resulting in an advantage to Dalmellington of 3-2. A double was scored by Dalmellington at the 6th and A&A responded with a single at the 7th. Dalmellington therefor running out as 5-3 winners and progressing through to the next round.
