  • Q4 31:10

    BEHIND KANGAROOSThe kick drifts wide and McIntosh slumps as the Bombers players celebrate a narrow win.

  • Q4 31:08

    The siren has sounded but McIntosh has a chance to win the game as he has the ball 45 out wide on the flank, as he runs in the crowd is hushed...

  • Q4 26:49

    BEHIND KANGAROOSDesperation for the Dons as the Roos stream forward, there is a tangle of bodies in the goal square and somehow the Bombers force it through.

  • Q4 24:12

    The Bombers have had the ball in their attacking 50 for most of the term, they simply cannot score, North has been into attack 50 six times for 5 goals that's efficient football.

  • Q4 22:12

    GOAL KANGAROOSEdwards out positions his man and takes the mark, the man is a sure shot and this is no exception he cuts the Dons' lead to 4 points, can the Roos complete a miraculous come back?

  • Q4 12:12

    GOAL KANGAROOSHarvey running through the centre hits Adams 50 out with a pin point pass, Harvey keeps on running while his opponent stops, Adams gives the ball back and Boomer kicks the goal.

  • Q4 10:12

    GOAL BOMBERSA free kick from another stoppage as Swallow rides Melksham into the turf, he will have the free kick 40 out right in front...never in doubt as that kick splits the big sticks, goal.

  • Q4 08:42

    BEHIND BOMBERSCrameri with another behind, his fourth of the night.

  • Q4 06:46

  • Q3 27:28

    GOAL BOMBERSEssendon explode from the back line and go all the way without the Roos getting a sniff, at the other end of the ground Stanton kicks the goal.

  • Q3 24:28

    BEHIND KANGAROOSWells marks 45 out and is cleaned up by Fletcher, there is no 50 forthcoming and the Bombers should thank the football gods. Wells kick is off line for a behind.

  • Q3 20:56

    BEHIND KANGAROOSWells kicks across the face for another behind.

  • Q3 19:45

  • Q3 04:23

    BEHIND KANGAROOSAdams marks 45 out and tries to curl the kick back through for a goal it comes back a long way but not quite enough, one behind.

  • Q2 25:30
