The Final between Benitachell Leopards and Quesada Lions was held at Bonalba B.C. on July 12th and promised to be a very tight contest based on the Finals over the last four years.
The Ladies Singles between Mary Cockell (BBC) and Jackie Johnston was nip and tuck with Jackie edging ahead to win 21-18. The Men’s Singles of Greg Sperring (BBC) against Derek Toozer was equally close, but after Greg picked up a three Derek couldn’t pull back to lose 14-21.
So it was equal after two disciplines and with the other games closely contested it looked set for an exciting finish, but then Quesada surged ahead to win all of the remaining disciplines to finish 5-1 winners.
