The Waves dom­i­nate to qual­ify for state pen­nants

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

Af­ter a one-year ab­sence in the state pen­nant fi­nals, Bund­aberg is back af­ter an­other dom­i­nant week­end by The Waves.

In­tent on mak­ing amends for miss­ing out last year at the same stage, The Waves started per­fectly at home against Glad­stone – the team that ended their chances in 2015.

Show­ing plenty of con­fi­dence af­ter an un­de­feated cam­paign in the lo­cal pen­nants, The Waves won by 13 shots to set up a grand fi­nal against Yep­poon.

Us­ing the wet weather as their ad­van­tage in the af­ter­noon, The Waves got on top early to con­trol the con­test.

Af­ter 20 ends, the match was over, with The Waves claim­ing the win with an in­sur­mount­able lead.

With their state spot sealed they will now be head­ing to Bri­bie Is­land in Novem­ber to com­pete in the Zone 6 fi­nals.

Player Tim Smith said the team per­formed well on the day.

“All three The Waves teams dom­i­nated,” he said.

“Against Yep­poon it got to a stage where it was clear and ob­vi­ous the side was go­ing to win.”

Smith said it was good to get an­other Bund­aberg team in the event with The Waves qual­i­fy­ing for the state ti­tles for the first time as well.

“Al­most ev­ery year it has been a Bundy team in the state ti­tles,” he said.

“Last year wasn’t ideal as Glad­stone won so it is great to get a team back to the state ti­tles.”

With some of those mem­bers part of the last state ti­tle win in 2010 with the de­funct Tan­titha Bowls Club, Smith said the team couldn’t wait.

“This could be the start of some­thing big for the club,” he said.

In the women’s pen­nants com­pe­ti­tion Bar­gara took out divi­sion one, Bund­aberg win­ning in divi­sion two.
