THE Boambee Bombers have shown a never say die attitude coming back from a two goal deficit for a memorable 5-4 win against the Northern Storm in their Coastal Premier League match at Ayrshire Park.

A last-minute goal to Brady Parker saw the Bombers clinch the vital three points to keep their hopes of a top-two finish well and truly alive.

Down 3-1 at half-time, the Bombers came out firing to start the second half with a beautiful strike from Luke France in the 58th minute breathing life and belief into the Bombers.

The Storm had won the aerial contest at that point with all three of their first half goals emanating from crosses.

Both sides created numerous chances throughout the 9-goal thriller in a good old fashioned end to end shootout.

Four goals from both sides in the last half an hour set up a frantic finish with the scores locked at 4-4 and the win there for the taking.

And it would be club legend Brady Parker who would be the hero of the day for the Bombers, with his match winner in the dying stages sending the Bombers faithful into raptures.

Bombers keeper Kyle Wood was given the honours of captaining his side during their come-from-behind win.

The young keeper provided a constant vocal presence of encouragement for his teammates, a directive he was given before the game.

“I got told by the senior boys to dig deep and to be vocal,” he said.

“We dropped our heads a bit when we went down 3-1, but we settled down and I kept telling the boys we were still in it and let’s win it.”

The Bombers captain described to News Of The Area the excitement he felt when his side scored the late match winner.

“It was phenomenal mate, you could feel it being here and I was super excited when Brady scored, everyone was going off,” he said.

With finals just around the corner, Wood could feel the intensity lift.

“I was pretty nervous when we were down as it’s getting to the tight end of the season,” he said.

“Our season is coming into finals and we needed to win to take some momentum into it.

“The game was fast paced with a lot of intensity and it felt like a finals game.”

The Coastal Premier League continues tomorrow with Round 17 matches.
