The teams swapped singles until the sixth end, where David and Bill grabbed a three to take them to a 6-3 lead.
Bill Hatzie led well and was well backed up by his skipper David.
Rob Sceney struggled during the game but his partner and leader Mal Williams kept them in it until the 13th end.
The score at that time was 10-9 in David and Bill’s favour.
Bill and David skipped away to an 18-9 lead on the 16th end and looked home comfortably.
Mal and Rob grabbed a seven on the 17th end and the game was afoot.
Another two on the 18th and last end meant it was a draw and an extra end was needed to decide a winner.
David drew shot with his last bowl to confirm that his team were the winners on the day. Both Bill and David played well and thoroughly deserved their popular win.
