JARED Bradfield and Callum Miller scored tries as Warwick State High School went down 14-12 to Toowoomba High at Glenholme Park in Wednesday night's open regional final in the Arrive Alive Cup.

Warwick State High went into the game with wins on three successive Wednesdays but trailed Toowoomba High 14-0 at halftime in the final.

In the last 20 minutes of the second half, Warwick High dominated and scored tries with 10 and five minutes to go.

Both tries were under the posts and converted.

Coach Robbie Stewart said the whole team muscled up to Toowoomba High and all tried hard.

"I don't want to single out players," Stewart said.

"We were disappointed after the game as dropped ball cost us."

Year 10 student Tim Collins arrived at the game in the 15th minute after captaining the Warwick High A-grade side to a Broncos Cup victory in Warwick.

He came on to the field in the second row and later moved to the centres.

"Tim made a difference when he came on to the field," Stewart said.

The Warwick High game plan was disrupted late in the first half when fullback Matty Gilchrist went off with a dislocated finger.

The finger was strapped during the break and he returned to the field in the second half.

As the game on Wednesday night was a knockout match, Warwick High has been eliminated from the competition.
