On rink 5 Connaught performed well and were only 1 shot down, 18-19, after 16 ends. The match slipped away over the last few ends but was still keenly fought.

On rink 2 the Connaught block were left at the starting gate, going 1-17 down after 11 ends. A good recovery saw them get to 14-18 after 18 ends and a possible victory in sight - but a poor finish left them 14-25 down.

On rink 3 Connaught were level 4-4 after 6 ends. A good run of ends saw them up 15-7 after 14 ends but a dropped 4 allowed the visitors to close up to 15-11. A strong finish, including a 6 on the last end, gave a comfortable win of 29-14.

A good 4-1 win in the end but the match was even at the mid-way stage. Fortunately, rink 2 recovered some lost ground to support the winning rinks

On rink 2 Connaught had a very even game, winning 10 ends.  The result was in doubt up to the final end with Connaught 14-15  down - unfortunately they dropped a 2 and lost 14-17.
On rink 3 Connaught took an early 9-0 lead and stayed in front for the whole game, losing only 5 ends.  A slight wobble on end 13 allowed GWS to narrow the lead to 16-11 but a strong finish saw them home 27-12.
Connaught played well in the first EBA match at GW. STANIFORTH.  The 1-4 result indicated a one-sided match but this was not the case.  Connaught lost by only 1 shot (50-51) and with a bit of luck on the final end could have had a 3-2 win.
