I've been so thrilled by the Bombers' form over the past few weeks. Some very exciting come from behind, gutsy wins. This is the longest Bombers winning streak that I can remember for at least a few seasons. And the impressive thing has been the way they've won. Over the past 5 weeks, most of the wins have been very small margins, and several come from behind heroic wins.
Today against the Gold Coast Suns, most commentators tipped an easy win for the Bombers, but kudos to the Suns, who came out firing, and played some very good footy in the first half. Part-way through the third quarter, the Suns were leading by 27 points, and at that point looked like winners. But then Bombers' coach put Stringer into the mid-field, which sparked the turn around. Bombers then kicked the next 6 goals to hit the lead and take an 8 point win into the last quarter.
All credit to the Suns, who fought back in the last quarter, and looked like snatching an upset win. But heroics by Hooker, marking the ball with less than a minute to go, and then converted the goal to put the Bombers in front again. Hooker is making a habit of these big last quarter plays to clinch tight wins. What a great player he has been recently. Hope he can keep it up. Go the Dons!
