The winning foursome stole another point in the fourth end and three more in the fifth frame. Glover, who was backed by Brian Ziegler, Hugh Lockhart and Shaun Planaden, took one in the sixth end and then conceded.

Meanwhile, Melvin Johanson defeated Ross Morrison 7-3 in the B-event final and Dennis Duncan took C-event honours with a 5-2 win over Brian Lougheed.
