Following the Triples qualifying back in November the 4 finalists played out their semi-finals and finals today.  

Both semi-finals were fairly one sided affairs and saw the Matt Johnston skipped team with Warren Tritt and Grant Shattock accounting for the Rex Bell, Gerry Wilkinson and Bruce Williams triple.   
In the other semi, the Scott Harrison triple with Richard Seifert and Artem Chesnokov couldn't keep pace with the John James (s), Odie Walter and Grant Torrie team.

The final saw the Johnston skipped triple out crisply for a 4 -0 nil lead in a couple of ends.  However the next 9 ends were all the James triple, who lead 11-4.   
Critically ends 12 and 13 saw Johnston and co fight back with 4 points to close the match up. 
Turning the for last end saw the Johnston team holding a 13-12 advantage.  It went down to the very last bowls and some attentive measuring to see the team of John James(s), Odie Walter & Grant Torrie claim victory with 2 points on the last.
Great bowling from all in tough conditions, wind-wise.
