NORADJUHA-Quantong won its fifth game of the season at the weekend by seven goals against a gallant Rupanyup outfit.

With Quantong Recreation Reserve bathed in winter sunshine, the Bombers' pace and ball movement was a highlight of their performance.

The more Noradjuha-Quantong looked to take on the game, the more its players wore down their opponents.

Bombers coach Jarred Combe told his players at three-quarter-time to take their opportunities and 'bury' the Panthers.

He instructed his men to be more direct in their forward approaches rather than bombing the ball in long.

The players responded, killing off the game early in the final term.

While Noradjuha-Quantong controlled the ball for most of the first half, Rupanyup stayed in touch, responding with regular goals. They were only seven points adrift of the Bombers at the main break.

The gulf in class emerged in the second half with the home side piling on 10 goals to four. The sting was well and truly out of the game in the latter stages of the final term.

Noradjuha-Quantong ran out convincing winners by 42 points.

The win launched the Bombers into sixth spot on the ladder after Taylors Lake and Natimuk United both suffered defeats.

Rupanyup lays stranded in ninth spot.
