Hosts Carmarthen came up against an in-form Llandeilo side, who have put in a decent run of wins of late. It came as no surprise when Llandeilo returned home with a 32-26 victory under their belts.
Carmarthen's Thelma Evans, Nelda Davies and Jean Taylor experienced a roller-coaster ride on rink one where they surged into a 14-7 lead, before Llandeilo skip Sara Nichols rallied to level at 14-14 with one end left.
