Donna didn't manage to achieve her 12th Championship win but she was a very worthy runner-up.

MATCH PLAY RESULTS AT RALSTON

The players were greeted at Ralston today with brilliant blue skies and most of the morning matches were won comfortably.  However it was a different story in the afternoon.
First match out was Gillian Kyle against Carol MacNally.  Gillian was soon 3 down to Carol but kept fighting till she managed to square the match at the 18th.  A half at the 19th and Gillian went on to win with a par at the 20th.
Denise Cowan then went out against Carol Fell (who says she doesn't play 36 holes!). Her superior length proved to be to her advantage and a tiring Carol and caddy Freda (combined ages 143!!!) finally gave in at the 16th to lose 4 & 2.
11 times Champion Donna Jackson played well to win 3 & 2 over Carol Whyte who at times still seemed to have jetlag after her recent trans-atlantic flight.
14 year old Jennifer Rankine, after a convincing win over Beth Paterson in the morning round, then took on Captain Gillian McGinley.  Gillian says Jennifer played really well and she went down 6 & 5.
