In the second game Victoria Point’s Queensland representative Sean Baker went down to Aaron Sherrif, another Australian representative at next month’s Commonwealth games. Baker had to contend with a top team which also included Kelsey Cotterell, a Club Helensvale Commonwealth games Australian player.
The third game was again won by Club Helensvale with its Commonwealth games Australian player Nathan Rice too good for Sam Twining, winning 32 to 20 shots.
