Gaining a date with them are Christine Baxter’s hotshots, who came through 22-17 against Estelle Welsh’s ladies.

Pam Rowe’s powerhouse outfit ripped past Christina Pavlov’s crew 29-19, they’ll meet Marilyn Emerton’s side in the semis after they saw off Ester Regan, 20-15.

Millerick’s awesome foursome of Cassie Millerick, Lynn Long, Karen Goldsworthy, almost came unstuck, only beating Treasure by a single shot.

But last year’s winners are not letting go of the trophy easily.

“No doubt about it, we’re going in with fight tomorrow,” declares the confident skip

“Today was such a great game to play in,” said Millerick

“We just played for each other, I encouraged the girls to keep building steady, hold our nerve and eventually we’ll get there.”

It’s more than just a semi final tomorrow for Millerick and Baxter, there is history between the two foes.

Millerick will play her vanquished opponent from last year’s final. But Baxter has no qualms about the semi-final showdown.

“We got revenge in the Australian Open,” states Baxter, with a hint of mischief.

“We won’t be lying down though, it’ll be a great game played in a sporting spirit.”

Baxter, with Cathy Lewis, Darilyn Spring and Debbie Logan, felt the weather made it a tricker game than anticipated.

“The wind made it difficult, but we all have to play with it,” she says, as conditions on the coast deteriorated from early morning.

“We were behind most of the game but on the 19th end we picked up a couple of fours and that changed the game.”

The other quarters saw 2013 Singles champ, Emerton, with Gail Compton, Judy Whaites and Leigh Fortington defeat Ester Regan’s line up of Bev McDaonald, Linda Brack and Faye Clarke, 20-15.

While Helensvale favourite, Pam Rowe, backed by Kristy Thatcher, Lauren Wilson and Charlie Harkness, showed her intent with a 29-19 humbling of Christina Pavlov.

The semis commence tomorrow at Broadbeach at 9.00am.
