Defending champion Anne Laing (Vale of Leven) is through to Friday morning's quarter-finals in which she will play Fiona Lockhart (St Regulus).
That will be a replay of their last-eight meeting over the Old Course, St Andrews 12 months ago. Anne could be spared if she had a "Deja Vu" feeling because her opponent in the first round was Claire Hargan - the good friend and player she beat in last year's final in the Centenary championship over the Old Course, St Andrews.
Also in the bottom half of the draw are Alexandra Young (Torrance House) and No 2 seed Sara Bishop (Windyhill). Sara birdied the 16th and 18th to win by one hole over Scotland international team member Lesley Mackay (Royal Dornoch).
Alexandra won her second-round tie by one hole against Fiona Gilbert (Carnoustie Ladies).
In the top half of the draw, there will be two Scotland caps in action - Pam Feggans (Doon Valley) and Clare Queen (Strathclyde University).
Miss Feggans, who flew back from Florida Southern University at the weekend, will play Martine Pow who produced the upset result of the day. Miss Pow, 39-year-old many times Borders champion, toppled the No 1 seed Louise Kenney (Pitreavie) by one hole after winning the 15th, 16th and 17th to transform a one-hole deficit into victory.
Martine birdied the 16th and the 17th.
Clare Queen won the morning battle of Curtis Cup reserves, coming back from two down with four to play to beat Lynn Kenny (Stirling University). Then Clare, who had survived a play-off on Wednesday night to get into the match-play stages, had to go down the 19th to get the better of Jenna Wilson (Strathaven).
Clare, one up on the 18th tee, drove out of bounds to be pulled back to square. Then Jenna put her second out of bounds over the wall at the first extra hole to lose the hole and the match.
Miss Queen will now play Fife county champion Katrina Milne (Dunfermline) who won five holes in a row from the sixth to wipe out Pam Mackay's early three-hole lead. Katrina went on to win by 2 and 1.
The quarter-finals line-up on Friday morning is:
8.30 Martine Pow v Pam Feggans.
