Bundy bowlers frighten
KEPNOCK State High's bowls team has fallen just short of a finals berth in the Queensland All Schools Cup.
The Bundaberg side of Scott Hawkins, Sean McNamee and Kyle Franks made it to the state play-offs but were beaten to the final by eventual winners Palm Beach Currumbin (PBC) State High School.
Kepnock took the Gold Coast-based side to the limit in their first match, but were outclassed by PBC, which fielded two Queensland representatives.
Kepnock look like causing the upset of the tournament when they raced to a 10-0 lead and wrapped up the first set 15-5.
A fired-up Kepnock outfit drew first blood in the second set, but tournament favourites PBC regained their composure and won the second set.
In the tiebreaker PBC showed why they are the best in the state, beating Kepnock 5-0.
Kepnock went on to beat Mackay's St Patrick's Co-Ed in straight sets (10-5, 13-6) and Brisbane's Hillbrook/Bray Park in three sets; 11-3, 9-24, 4-0.
But Palm Beach Currumbin also won all of their matches and qualified for the final, where they beat Urangan State High School in three sets; 11-5, 3-8, 6-1.
