Ted McPhee and Ashley Lewis had the long trip to Lawson on two successive weekends.
They played Penrith in the first match and had a dominant 27-13 win.
Then on Saturday, November 18, they played Camden in the quarter final and made certain they booked their place in the semifinal with another solid win, this time by 28-11.
McPhee had to pull out of the semifinal the following day due to illness which was a blow for Bowral as he had been very impressive in all the lead up games.
Playing a the Bowral Bowling Club, the home side had to replace McPhee with Jim Neely.
The first few ends were very tense, with both teams taking a lead, but then the situation changed and Bowral went to a 13-8 lead.
However, like the Australian cricketers, they relaxed and found themselves on the back foot, trailing 20-14.
On the last end, Bowral were behind 20-19, but everything went in Penrith's favour.
At the finish, Penrith were very happy to have a two shot win, but still a great effort for Bowral to reach this far.
