Bombers finish better

RELATED: Big win for the Blues

TRARALGON-Tyers United pushed passed Yarram in a spirited final term to win by 25 points.

In a see-sawing contest which had the lead change on several occasions, the Bombers and Demons were locked at 7.7 (49) apiece at the long change to remain unbeaten after two rounds of North Gippsland football.

Both sides’ engine rooms toiled hard throughout the contest. Yarram’s Jari McDonald led the charge, while the more experienced campaigner Brian Graham set-up TTU’s forward run time and time again in an impressive display.

The sides exchanged blows on the scoreboard during the third term with the Bombers outscoring the visitors five goals to four to take a slender five-point break into the final term.

With the contest in the balance, TTU began the final term strongly. Stephen Hawkins was the go-to man in front of goal for the Bombers, taking to his match tally to six majors.

The Demons kept charging, Corbin Sutherland creative in the forward 50, but the visitors couldn’t keep with the second-placed Bombers, who won 17.12 (114) to 13.11 (89).
