Bombers down Maclean for place in final

A FIRST-HALF double from striker Brady Parker helped Boambee seal a berth in this weekend's Men's 1st Division grand final.

Going into the match as the underdogs, the Bombers opened their preliminary final with freedom and flair to totally upset the rhythm of their more fancied Maclean opponents.

Finding space and using some crisp passing, the Bombers raced to a two-goal lead thanks to Parkers heroics in front of goal.

This match was billed as a race to the Golden Boot trophy between Parker and Maclean striker Fraser Robinson.

Parker's efforts not only ensured that Boambee advanced to the grand final but that he also picked up the prize as well.

It's often said that a two-goal lead is the hardest to defend and the age old adage again proved correct as Maclean responded just before the break.

Some sterling defensive efforts in the second half from the Bombers kept out many desperate attacking raids from Maclean to grab the victory.

Last year's top-flight debutants have come a long way and now a date with Coffs United beckons.
