THE Dubbo Pace­mak­ers (win­ners 1985) edged out the Welling­ton Wed­getails 18-14 in a game that gripped the mas­sive Satur­day crowd at Apex Oval.

While that was to be their last win for the car­ni­val, it showed the pride the mod­ern “Pa­cies” have in their club and the cham­pi­ons of the early knock­outs.

Welling­ton’s Wed­getails were very com­pet­i­tive but the early lead they con­ceded proved too much to reel in.
