The final game of the night was the first place team, McBride, against Hammer Time. Hammer Time had been
bribed deliciously convinced by members of Rock Lobster to beat McBride, so much was on the line for this particular match. After losing the Hammer, Hammer Time stole the first end by one. The team then went on to take the second, the third, and the fourth each by one to lead the game by four at the halfway point. McBride then put up their first point in the fifth, taking that end by one. McBride began to pick up momentum and took the sixth end by two to bring the game within one. The seventh end is presumably where the tires fell off for Hammer Time – McBride took the seventh by four, to lead the game by three going into the final end. While Hammer Time did take the eighth, they were only able to take it by one, much to the dismay of the orange-garbed crowd that had returned to cheer them on. McBride won the game 7-5.
