Whitwam won the first of his three sets, beating Kristian Fearnley in five games 8-11, 11-7, 11-9, 9-11, 12-14 to put his team in front and in the fourth rubber Allington again levelled the match, winning in three straight games against Walker 11-3, 11-3, 11-7.

Whitwam won the fifth set 6-11, 8-11, 6-11 to give his team the lead again which was further extended as Schofield won his first set of the match beating Fearnley 11-13, 7-11, 11-5, 11-9, 7-11. He then completed his maximum in the most thrilling set of the match beating Allington 11-3, 10-12, 4-11, 11-9, 12-14.
