BOMADERRY have kept in touch with the top tier of the Shoalhaven District Football Association ladder following their 4-nil win over cellar dwellers Huskisson.
It looked like it could perhaps be anybody’s game at half-time with Bomaderry only leading 1-nil, but they put Husky to the sword after the break, piling on three goals.
Bomaderry got off to a dream start, with Dave Hampton finding himself in a good position and chipped the ball past the keeper.
Despite a number of chances, Bomaderry couldn’t build on their lead before the break.
A penalty by Blake Munilla early in the second-half extended Bomaderry’s lead, before Dave Hampton’s lead up work allowed Mitch Cornell to make it 3-0.
Daniel Frew’s header late in the game then put an exclamation point on the win.
Despite some room for improvement, Bomaderry coach Doug Foley was happy with his side’s play.
“It was a good win and it keeps us in touch with the top of the ladder which is what we wanted to do.
“We missed a few opportunities in the first half, which has been our problem recently, but it was pleasing to see us capitalise on them in the second half.”
With Bomaderry missing their first choice keeper, Foley was happy with his side’s commitment in defence.
“We had to bring up our keeper from reserves, and with a new guy at the back we spoke about protecting him and being strong in defence.
“The blokes at the back did that and I think our keeper only touched the ball three times which I was very happy to see.”
The win will no doubt give Bomaderry plenty of confidence going into Monday’s second round of the double-header, where they face the top of the table Culburra at Culburra Oval.
Huskisson will be back at home in search of their first win, against Illaroo, who have also struggled lately.
