2020's Fours Gold winners - Kane Nelson, Caysee Wilson, Corey Marshall & Nick Cahill with BQ’s Kerry Green

2020 Junior State Championships – Fours Final

by jgrey on January 22, 2020

The Bowls Queensland State Junior Carnival being held in Toowoomba this week entered the first stage of its finals with the Open Under 15 & Open Under 18 Pairs and the Open Fours championships being contested at the North Toowoomba Bowls Club yesterday.

The Under 18 Open Fours final provided the highlight of the day. In what many good judges believed would be a close match, Nick Cahill’s team stunned Jake Rynne’s team to lead 8-0 and then 12-4 before the combination of Rynne (North Toowoomba), Ty Jesberg (Longreach), John Hammond (Roma) & Kira Bourke (Tweed Heads) staged a massive fight back to draw level. Cahill (Kawana), Corey Marshall (Helensvale), Caysee Wilson (Kawana) & Kane Nelson (Belmont Services) then steadied to claw their way back in front. With the score at 17-16 on the last end in favour of Cahill’s team, Rynne played a near dead-draw with his last bowl to 80cm, leaving Cahill to have the final say. In what initially looked short, Cahill’s final bowl finished less than a centimetre inside Rynne for a thrilling 18-16 victory.

The Bronze Medal went to the team of Caleb Bowles (Swifts), Chloe Runge (Glasshouse Mountains), Dekota Brindle (Darra) & Mitchell Doyle (Hamilton) after scoring 27-9 against the team of Marley & Zed Peters, (Burnett) Christian McLellan & Cody Staggard (Kallangur).
