A scintillating display of bowls saw Hayden Vogler skip Mitchell Mears, Thomas Young and 10 year old Jake Rynne, gained top placing in Section Three after their 3-0 whitewash of all comers at the State Junior Fours Championships held at Broadbeach in ideal conditions.

After a first round victory Vogler was confident heading into the next game against his friend Jacob Nelson.

“It’ll be hard but we’re a good team. There’s no egos here, we work well.”

Nelson on the other hand felt his unit were unlucky.

“We’re not dropping more than two shots each end, but we’re not really placing our shots right,” the Cleveland bowler confessed.

A first round draw, courtesy of a five shot rescue, was evidence Nelson’s team would be up against it.

Nelson then lost to Vogler and drew his third match, 12-12 with Paul Kajewski.

Braidan Leese lead Joel Anderson, Mitchell Styles and Stephen Savage to a triple triumph with a formidable 3-0 performance.

“We’re playing well,” said Queensland rep Leese, “We’re putting the bowls just right.”

There was no doubting their superiority, a 13-2 lead after six ends in the second game hammering home their overall dominance.

Also finishing the day with 100% record was Cohen Litfin, coming through 16-6, 18-5 and 15-10.

He was expertly supported by April Wilson, Jesse Turnbull and younger brother, Bryce.

“Bryce just needs to read it a little better but April has been playing awesome,” Litfin commented after a Round Two demolition of Lachlan Grantz’s side, 18-5.

But he was taking nothing for granted.

“We’ve won two but I want three out of three.” 

Elsewhere Nic Gosley also lead his outfit to three victories, seeing off teams lead by Nicky Cahill,  Daniel Keogh and Shervawn Wilson.

In Section Five, Brittanny Wiley took her side into the Post Sectional after two wins, beating Josh Anderson and Alexander Harman.

Anderson felt he could have done better.

“I’m just not getting it right.”

Wiley on the other hand felt her previous form would bode well.

“I’ve had a good year, I think we can do well,” she said before her team took to the rink.

But come the Post Sectional, the two wins were a distant memory as Nic Gosley, skipping Connie-Leigh Rixon, Taleah Putney and Brendan Wilson, saw off Wiley, 27-8, bringing the curtain down on an exhilarating, and long, day’s play.

The Fours semis and final will take place on Monday at Broadbeach, where the pairs gets underway tomorrow at 9 a.m.
