Noradjuha-Quantong prevailed by the smallest of margins against Swifts in a thrilling Horsham District A Grade clash in round two.
Bombers coach Yolly Molineaux said she was proud of her side, after they fought back in the last term to secure the victory.
"The last few minutes were really hectic," Molineaux said. "We went down by about three goals in the last term, but credit to the defenders and the goalies who really stood up in the last quarter."
Molineux said a late Sharon Fedke goal was a pivotal moment. Fedke seamlessly stepped into the A Grade side after playing B Grade last week, and led the Bombers with 27 goals.
"Shaz sunk this long bomb probably with about three minutes to go, and that was probably what lifted us in those last few minutes," Molineaux said.
"I distinctly remember her sinking that and everyone just really picking it up after."
Swifts coach Courtney Morrow said it was a tough loss, but a great game.
"It was a close game with some really good match-ups across the court," Morrow said.
"(late in the game) it was all about compsure - I felt we worked well as a team in trying to keep our nerve as the scores went goal for goal. I could really see the fight in the girls, that's all I could really ask for."
Georgia Francis was best on ground for the Bombers while Jade Ralph was deemed the best for Swifts.
In other contests, Natimuk United again showed their strength against Jeparit-Rainbow with a 31 goal win, but the Storm were able to match it with the Ewes for large portions of the contest.
In their first outing of the season, a seemingly improved Storm outfit were getting opportunities, but were let down by their inaccuracy in the ring.
Co-coach Ashleigh Morrison said it was a promising start to the year.
"Our first and fourth quarter were really good we thought, we kept with them," she said. "We had plenty of the ball, we just struggled up the attacking end a little bit. Their defense is really, really strong.
"As our first game it was a bit scrappy and we're all feeling a bit unfit too, but we're feeling pretty happy after today."
In other contests, Kalkee were led by Rianna Kuhne and Hayley Thomas - who scored 34 goals - to defeat Rupanyup 62-34.
Laharum also secured a typically dominant win against Pimpinio, with Caitlin Story scoring 60 goals in their 91-30 win. Edenhope-Apsley also led Taylors Lake all day and finished with a 14 goal win.
