Bomaderry still in the hunt for semi finals

BOMADERRY slaughtered the opposition 5-nil in their match against St Georges Basin on Saturday.

Bomaderry coach Doug Foley said the game went very well, but they will need to keep up the winning streak for a chance at the finals.

“We will have to win again next week to get to the semi-finals,” he said.

“The game was pretty much ours all the way, having said that we still only scored five goals.

“To be fair the Basin played well with the young guys who are playing and their coach is improving them for next year.”

Mitchell Cornell scored the first goal of the game in the first half and also picked up their third goal, also in the first half of the game.

Dave Hampton scored the second goal on the game, making it 3-nil when the whistle blew at half time.

Bomaderry came back strong for the second half of the game and Ben Foley scored from free kick taking the score up to 4-nil.

Matt Kellett scored a good goal at the end to finish the game at 5-nil.

“There was good lead-up work for this goal before Kellett ran it into the box,” Foley said.

“Everyone put in pretty good effort and Blake Munilla also put in a good game.

“We’re all looking forward to next week now. It’s do or die.”

Bomaderry will play Shoalhaven United on their home field next week for the chance to enter the semi-finals.

Basin coach Scott Aldridge said Bomaderry had more to play for in this game.

“The boys had to change our structure after 10 minutes to try and contain the speed of the Bomaderry forwards,” he said.

“It took a while for my boys to settle in and stick to the new structure.

“We are looking forward to our grand final next week against Huskisson.”

Aldridge said Brian booth and Chris Preece played a good game and Wade Garin gave it his all.

The looser in the Basin’s final game against Huskisson will be the wooden spoon holders for 2014.
