Bombers win far from easyJuly 2, 2014 3:55am
Kyabram overcame difficult conditions and a competitive Mooroopna side to record a 21-point win in Goulburn Valley Football League on Saturday.
With a stiff breeze in their favour and on their home turf, the Cats kept the Bombers goalless to take a nine-point lead into quarter-time.
However, Kyabram was able use the conditions to its advantage and take control of the contest in the second quarter, kicking six unanswered goals for a 26-point lead at the main break.
Mooroopna pushed forward again in the third term, but was unable to get closer than five points at any stage, down two goals at three-quarter time.
With the wind back in the Bombers’ favour for the final quarter, they were able to pull away for the win.
Kyabram coach Dave Williams was pleased his side fought the game out for the win.
‘‘There was a pretty strong breeze favouring the city end and we were not good early on as we were overusing the ball and making some poor decisions,’’ Williams said.
‘‘We managed to straighten that up after the first quarter and started to use the ball really well, especially in the first 15 minutes of the second quarter, to get on top.
‘‘Mooroopna’s a pretty competitive side and I think they’ll take a few big scalps during the second half of the season.’’
Conditions led to a lot of stoppages, but ruckman Jake Reeves was outstanding for the Bombers and was named best-on-ground.
‘‘Jake did well in the ruck, but also got around the ground and took some really good marks for us,’’ Williams said.
‘‘Tom Sheldon also had a really strong game and Liam Ogden did well and got a couple of goals.’’
Jordan Williams, Nick Coulstock and Axel Childs were also among Bombers best.
