Vic defeated Ron McWaters 31 – 22 in the Semi-final of the Senior Singles on Saturday and backed that up with a 31 – 22 win over Terry McFadden in the Final on Sunday. This was a game in which Vic dominated early but had to fight hard to withstand a strong come back from Terry before again asserting his dominance. The Open Singles between Kris Lehfeldt and Tails turned out to be a marathon, taking 4 hours to complete. Kris held the lead for the first two and a half hours until Tails picked up a couple of multiples. And grabbed a 21 – 20 lead.
