While the Central B team had a rest for their bye, this week saw Central A at home to Witney Mills who were fighting possible relegation from the top tier. A win for Mills would have put Central back in the demotion battle.
 
Will Campion with John Pardoe, Jim Gow and Graham Morbey won 23-18 and Nigel Galletly's rink of Andy Wilkin, Keith Williams and Paul Humphris won 18-14. Les Campion's rink of Allan Hunt, Lionel Lewis and Mike Andrew had a tight match against a strong Mills four and lost on the last end 19-20. The final rink of Chick Boyd, Mick Miles, Keith McNeil and Ian Whelpton finished strongly picking up 8 shots in the last three ends to only lose 18-21 and secure the match win for Central by 78-73.
 
The 4-2 result puts Central 6.5 points clear of Witney Mills with a game in hand over their opposition and virtually secures Central place in Division One next year.
