Both pairs started off tentatively and despite going into the water of the first tee Amy and Megan came away with a half.  A great chip by Tabitha on the 2nd hole saw her and Marie move into the lead, but this was short lived as they found trouble on the third and conceded the hole to go all square.

A birdie on the 5th saw Marie and Tabitha reclaim the lead but Amy and Megan levelled the match on the 7th and it remained all square through to 10th hole.  Once again Marie and Tabitha forced their way back into the lead winning the 11th and 12th holes.  Amy and Megan won the 13th to reduce the arrears and drew level when they won the 16th hole.  They forced their way into the lead when they won the 17th hole and secured a half on the final hole to win the match 1 up.
