The Mullumbimby Bowling Club was defeated by Kingscliff at the final of the District Fours played at Cudgen on last Sunday.
The team of Ross Graham, Ben Leeson, Mark Hogan, and Richie Northcott played great bowls to be just ahead after ten ends, against the fancied Kingscliff side.
Kingscliff edged away over the closing stages and were six shots ahead going into the final end. With Mullum holding five shots, the team was unable to snare the extra shot needed to force the match into extra time, before finally going down 24–16.
It was a great effort from the Mullum side containing two rookie bowlers.
