Bombers dive in for victory
A TOUGH victory on challenging home turf conditions has put Boambee back on track in today's men's premier league showdown.
The Bombers lined up against a strong Northern Storm Thunder outfit who were looking to continue their winning streak on the back of last weekend's defiant effort against Sawtell.
Bombers coach Brady Parker said despite tough conditions on the pitch at Ayrshire Park, his squad had scored a solid result.
"We were 3-1 up at one point and I was hoping we would run away with it," Parker said.
"We got comfortable but the boys dug in and gritted it out."
Parker said a standout performer was Tom Frawin who had been making his first grade debut for the Bombers.
Frawin joined Naomichi Matsuda, Lachlan Moye and Brady Parker to put points on the scoreboard for the Bombers.
Northern Storm Thunder meanwhile didn't go down without a fight, with a strong comeback effort in the second half.
A late goal by Gum Mayack saw scores locked at 3-all before Parker put the Bombers back in front in the dying minutes of the game.
Thunder's Scott Dickson said standout players were Jamie Kennedy and Matty Latham.
Northern Storm Thunder will look to turn today's fortunes around when they play the Maclean Bobcats on Saturday.
Boambee Bombers now face a tough contest on Sunday when they take on Urunga.
