At number 4 Ian Turnbull was just a couple of points off victory in each of the 3 games, but sunk to a 3:0 defeat to a higher ranked opponent.

Scott Hay lost the first game but came back to cruised to a typical clinical 3:1 victory.

Finally Chris McGeady had little difficulty in making it a fourth match for the Allander, though he did delay the inevitable, carelessly throwing the first game away. He soon made amends and rounded off a good night for the Allander with a 3:1 win.
