Through the Niuc in the Front Nine Sweep held at Galgorm Castle Golf Club there was a four way tie between Gareth Elliot (8), Robin Deane (10), Alan Knox (7) and Colin Black (9).

Two holes further on and Elliot (par, bogey), Knox (par, bogey) and Black (bogey, par) were still level, a point ahead of Deane (double bogey, par).

A birdie by Elliot at the Treasury saw him take a one point lead over Knox (par) and Black (bogey) with Deane (bogey) another point back.

A par each from Knox and Black at the penultimate hole enabled them to draw level with Elliot who could only manage a bogey.
