Bombers overcome Sawtell in seven goal thriller

The battle for possession in midfield.

THE Boambee Bombers triumphed 5-2 over second-place Sawtell FC in a thrilling seven-goal match at Ayrshire on Saturday.

The game was an end-to-end spectacle, with both teams creating numerous chances.

Boambee consistently reached the ball first however, winning the crucial 50/50 challenges that secured their win.

Player/coach Lachie Moye hailed it as their best match of the season.

“Saturday was probably our best team performance,” he said.

“We controlled the game well from start to finish; the amount of quick passes and combination plays we executed in holding possession, from the front to back, was good to see.

“It allowed us to open up their defence, and create lots of goal scoring opportunities.”

The Bombers have been on the ascendency after some narrow losses including losing to league leaders Woolgoolga in round 9.

“The main emphasis for improvement I put on the guys before this game was to work on being tighter and more aggressive in defence and win most of the 50/50 second balls.

“Scoring goals has not been a problem for us this season.

“We executed this brilliantly in the win, and it’s this type of defence and grit that will help us push to play finals.”

Boambee will host Northern Storm in a highly anticipated round 13 match of the HIT105.5 North Coast Premier League at Ayrshire Park on Sunday, with kickoff at 2 pm.

Northern Storm are in red-hot form and moved into second place on the table after scoring seven unanswered goals against Westlawn Tigers last Saturday.

“We look forward to the test we face on Sunday against Northern Storm, and will play hard to make it three wins in a row against top four opposition,” concluded Moye.
