The final score was 18-13 to Henderson.
The final was also a one way street for Carlton Cornwall where again they only completed 16 of the ends and had a 23-9 advantage.

In the Men's quarterfinals played today Pt Chevalier overcame Te Atatu Peninsula 19-15 and Hillsboro overcame Carlton Cornwall 19-16.

Onehunga and Blockhouse Bay was a good tussle with Onehunga taking first blood and by the ninth end having a 11-4 lead. Blockhouse Bay then claimed the next six ends to be 12-11 up and then lead into the final end by three shots.
Onehunga were holding two shots when the skips crossed over, but a run from Peter Hurle from Blockhouse Bay gave them two shots and Onehunga's skip, Scott Evans, could not claim the shots back. In the end Blockhouse Bay took the game 18-13.
Blockhouse Bay started the final well but Hillsboro soon hit their straps and by the thirteen end had a 15-7 advantage.
The 14th end was a battle with each side coming in and sitting on the shots of the other side but it was Hillsboro who once again won the battle and took another shot.
The final score was 17-9 to Hillsboro so congratulations to Chris Lowe, Jordan King and Peter Thorne on their title.
