Our junior numbers across our U9’s and 11’s were strong, our 13’s put in some solid performances and much heart was shown by our 15’s and 17’s sides.
In the seniors, the Bomber reached the finals in both A’s and B’s. Our A’s finished third on the ladder and our B’s second – a tremendous effort by both sides.
The A’s played for a spot in the preliminary final and unfortunately fell short. Whilst much can be talked about of the efforts during the whole game, it is always going to be difficult pegging back a seven-goal deficit. As always, Coach McCarthy talks straight and feels we were outmatched by a strong, tall opposition who jumped out the gates with intensity. Not unfamiliar in a final and it just appeared the opposition wanted the ball more than us. The backs were under pressure all day as their mid-field run us ragged. So, lessons can be learnt through all the above.
On the upside, our B’s took it to all the way to the big day. Whilst outmatched on Grand Final day, getting there exceeded the Club’s expectations, which showed tremendous heart, depth and consistency – most encouraging for the season’s ahead and to influence our colts.
Keep up the Bomber cheer and come support the lads THROUGH 2017.
Go The Bomber!!!
