Bombers march to top of table

TWO wins by a combined total of 12 goals has Boambee sitting pretty at the top of the North Coast Football table.

The match started off with the Northern Storm team attacking strongly and as Boambee captain Paul Walsh marshalled his defence it appeared that this was going to be a torrid and tight affair.

Oh how wrong that thought was. What was to transpire after that will be a major concern for Thunder coach Jason Breton.

After repelling the initial sustained attacking raids from the opposition, the Boambee machine soon turned the game on its head with an absolute cracker from stopper Trent Backhouse that just about blew the hands off the Storm ’keeper.

After that goal it soon became a procession with the Parker brothers Wade and Brady either absolutely running the Storm defence ragged or simply being left unmarked allowing them to score goal after goal.

A 2-0 lead at half-time quickly ballooned out to become a 7-0 shellacking that saw Wade Parker score a hat-trick, Brady Parker a double including a cracking free kick while Grant Scully also managed to get his name on the scoresheet.

Best for the Bombers were defenders Walsh, McMillan and Backhouse and the up front Parker duo.

Not all was lost for the Storm team who never gave up and were unlucky to run into a red hot Boambee outfit that would have beaten most teams on that day.

Mykel Watson played a lone role at the back and without him the score could have been greater and as usual Luke Venn was strong in the midfield while young striker Ryan Cole chased everything down and gave the Boambee defence reason to stay alert.
