Steve Pongrac caused a minor upset as he the made it 2 rubbers to nil with a defeat over Jeannette Vear in 4 games. Limp Bizcutts still with a chance to make the top 4 would need a big effort and the fight back started with Donna Fisher fighting hard against Dale Watson to win in 5 games. Wayne Sparks battled hard eventually defeated by Chris Stamos in a 5 game thriller. Quick calculations and it was clear both teams had leap frogged Whyte Knights and into a rematch next week in the first sudden death round of Finals. Ending the hopes of Whyte Knights playing finals.
In the other clash it was a morale boasting win just by a couple of games to Brighter Whites to finish the season on top of the ladder against 2nd place Team Three.
