MILDURA had won the past four premierships, but their reign came to an end on Monday, with Irymple claiming their first title in 19 years.

In an epic final, Irymple took control of the match early, only to have Mildura claw their way back into the contest.

Irymple got out of the blocks well with a quick opening and held a six shot lead after 15 completed ends across the three rinks. Shirley Pupillo picked up six shots on the third end, but dropped five shots the fifth and seven shots on the seventh.
