Two closely fought semi finals Forfar 3 (4) v Perth 1 (5) and Kinross 2 (7) v Lanarkshire (6). Both games went to the last stone.

In the Final, Perth stole one shot at the second end which gave them a two shot lead. Kinross hit back with a two at end 4 to tie the game 3 all after four. Perth then made a draw for four at end 5.  7, 3 to Perth. The Kinross skip played a good draw for three at end 6.  Perth’s  Kenny Kinnear drew the four foot four a 9, 6 lead playing the last and the win.
