Power surge falls short

URANGAN'S Keith Dunne Oval wasn't a happy hunting ground for Fraser Coast Aussie rules teams on Saturday.

All three Fraser Coast teams in action on AFL Queensland Bundaberg Wide Bay competition grand final day lost.

The Hervey Bay Bombers crashed to defeat in both the under-15 and 17 grand finals and it was the same club that inflicted the heartache of falling at the final hurdle – Bundaberg's Brothers Bulldogs.

The Rum City team won the under-15 showdown 6.5.41 to 3.10.28.

Brothers Bulldogs were crowned premiers of the under-17 division after winning the final 9.12.66 to 6.5.41.

But Brothers Bulldogs were not finished yet.

The club also celebrated a win in the reserve grade final after the minor premiers beat Hervey Bay's Bay Power 14.1.85 to 11.10.76.

It was the first time a senior team from Bay Power had reached a grand final in the six-year history of the club and Bay Power president David Taylor said it was shame his team could not make it a winning debut.

“Unfortunately, they (Brothers Bulldogs) started strongly and we didn't,” Taylor said.

“They led by six goals at one stage before we hit our straps in the final quarter – we kicked five goals, but it just wasn't enough.

“You don't get a second chance in a grand final.

“We'll bounce back better for the experieince next year.”

The A-grade grand final was an all-Bundaberg affair between Brothers Bulldogs and Across the Waves.

Brothers Bulldogs won 10.8.68 to 7.16.58.
