Rink 3 was skipped by Angela Thompson whose rink found themselves trailing after the sixth end by 2 to 7, this trend continued and the score after the 14th end Thompson’s rink was down 6-11 but after a huge turnaround at the 16th end the Lurgan took an amazing 5 shots for them to take the lead and eventually win 14-12.
