RIVERTON Black and
Riverton White met in the Divi-
sion Three frst semi fnal, with a
Riverton side guaranteed of featur-
ing in the preliminary fnal – but
which Riverton side would it be?
At the break, Riverton White
held a slender fve shot lead. By
the end of the 20th end, this lead
had only been reduced by one
shot.Over the next four ends on
each rink, Riverton Black won
seven of the 12 ends played, to
cut Riverton White’s lead back to
just three shots.
The fnal end for each rink
was a crucial one with each rink
coincidentally fnishing at almost
exactly the same time.
Riverton Black gained three
shots on this fnal end in two of
the rinks, but a single shot up on
the remaining rink ensured that
Riverton White scraped through
by the solitary shot.

rinks with Ann Harrip gaining a
narrow 27-25 win against Peter
Koster (RW) and Phil Gates had a
strong 36-11 win over Ross Han-
