The next game was Dundee against hosts, Caledonia West ll. The young home side showed their inexperience as the visitors raced to a 12/5 lead, with Lana Edgar gaining 6 points from a scoring hit and 5 serve ‘Aces’. Scores from Natalia Stopwoska and serves from Lucy Wishart gave Dundee the opening set 25/17. The same start was repeated in set 2 with Dundee taking a 15/9 lead. Fate conspired against the Dundee girls as Cale West scored 2 points in succession with serves that hit the net and dropped over and onto the floor!

Clair Pollock and Lana Edgar both scored to give Dundee set point at 24/23 but Cale levelled with a hitting error.
