Far North Queensland bowlers performed well but fell just short of retaining the Northern Challenge Cup. Following two strong wins each on day one, by both the Far North Stingers and Mackay Midgies District teams, it was fitting that the Cup would be decided in their match-up in the final game of the series. It was close throughout the 3 hour game but in the end, the home ground advantage proved the telling factor, with Mackay taking the Championship 73 shots to Far North’s 63. North Qld/Townsville Thunder finished 3rd and Atherton BCD in 4th place. Game 1-Far North Stingers 76 def North Qld/Townsville Thunder 66 (B Cribbin 29 d J Cribbin 22; A Muller 24 was defeated by G Atfiend 25; S McInerney 23 d M Defrangas 19). Game 2- Far North Stingers 60 def Atherton and Tablelands 40 (B Cribbin 17 d N Twining 11; A Muller 16 was defeated by A Jones 19; S McInerney 27 def S Martin 10). Game 3- Far North Stingers 63 were def by Mackay Midgies 73 ( B Cribbin 32 def A Bell 16; S Mc Inerney 16 was def by Pistol Blackburn 29; A Muller 15 was def by R Kurtz 28.
