CRUNCH TIME: Boonah Rathdowney are gunning for a finals berth this weekend.

The Boonah Rathdowney Bowls team outplayed Booval Swifts on Saturday at Ipswich, claiming an emphatic 17 shot victory..

The two rink to one result was enough to see them move from fifth to fourth in the Cunningham District Pennants.

With the top three progressing to the finals, they must now win at least one of two games to be played on Saturday at Corinda.

Boonah Rathdowney representative Barry Cooke said the joint side had a good win against a Booval side that had previously been sitting above it on the table.

He said the squad had one player unavailable this weekend, so it would be forced to tinker further with combinations that had lifted its performance in recent weeks.

If they are to clinch a finals berth, the competition dark horse will have to overcome the two best teams in the competition, second placed Yeronga and leaders Souths Acacia, but they are ready for the challenge.

“We believe we can do it,” Mr Cooke said.

“We’re confident, but not over-confident.”

He said Souths Acacia will maintain top spot regardless of the outcome of the weekend’s matches but the other two spots in the playoffs are wide open.

“If we win one of the games, we should make it through to the finals,” Mr Cooke said.

“If we win both of them, we’ll definitely make it through.”
