Bombers’ for­ward line fires

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport -

The War­ren Black­wood Bombers con­tin­ued their win­ning form with a com­fort­able vic­tory over Har­vey-Brunswick-Leschenaul­t at Man­jimup Oval on Satur­day.

The Bombers took com­mand of the con­test in the open­ing term to open a com­mand­ing 27point lead and from this point con­trolled the con­test with some dom­i­nance.

The fi­nal score of 11.1 (67) to 1.1 (7) re­flected the play­ers’ team­work, skill and speed with the ball.

Bombers’ ruck di­vi­sion, led by Holly Gill, was in­stru­men­tal in set­ting up a con­stant wave of at­tacks and with Lacey Holdsworth, Mack­ayla Lowe and Sophia Scott all in fine form up for­ward a flow of ma­jors en­sured.

Claire El­lis was also ac­tive up for­ward slot­ting a string of ma­jors off some strong con­tested mark­ing.

Bombers cap­tain Sa­van­nah Ash­worth gave a pol­ished dis­play while se­nior play­ers Terea Blee, and Carla Ward de­liv­ered hard­work­ing per­for­mances to link up the Bombers’ play.

Kiara Lit­tle and Abbey Wil­son con­tinue to show they have skills to add to the Bombers’ strong list and will be im­por­tant play­ers as the sea­son con­tin­ues.

The Bombers’ sea­son will take a two week-break dur­ing school hol­i­days and re­turn with an away game against Bun­bury on July 25.
