The Greenlees Team won 5 - 4 today at Ranfurly against a Cathkin Braes team containing many experienced match players. It was always going to be hard for the girls at the front of the team and they put up a good fight but it was the back of the team that brought in the points.
The match was sitting finely balanced at 4 - 4 and awaiting the result of Helen Craig's game. Helen got a big cheer from her Ranfurly team mates when it was heard that she had won her match on the 18th to make the result an overall victory for Ranfurly Castle.
