Bombers Dismantle Nashville

 Milwaukee Bombers 12.13 (85) d No. 7 Nashville Kangaroos 6.5 (41)

August 2, 2008 Milwaukee, WI

The Milwaukee Bombers overran Nashville on Saturday for a 44-point win against the Roos.

In what was a must-win for the Bombers to keep their MAAFL Premiership hopes alive, Milwaukee did the job of taking down Nashville through their best footy of the year. Despite the ‘Roos unending pressure throughout the game, Milwaukee’s overall control of the footy and dominance in mid-field allowed the Boys to control nearly every aspect of the game.

As the game slipped away from Nashville, their frustrations became apparent. Milwaukee however maintained their focus, repelled repeated attacks, created space by a quick secession of handballs out of danger followed by deliberate kicks to targets up front for each score. The Bombers’ “Boy Band” did the hard work of creating scoring opportunities and full-forward Heath Whelan pulled down some terrific marks.

“We just played great footy today,” said coach heath Moore.  “I asked each player to give me their best today and I got it.”

Final Score - 12.13 (85) Bombers to 6.5 (41) Roos

Best: Rob Humphries, Andy Vanica, Ross Siegel, Daron Gresham, Pete Apostolitis

Bombers Top Blues in St. Louis
The Milwaukee Bombers took their second away victory in the 2008 MAAFL season topping St. Louis by 27 points. 

 Conditions were hot and humid as the sun broke through the early morning clouds to produce temperatures in the mid 90s at tip off.  Playing on a small field, Milwaukee needed adjustment time. The game’s scrappy start was highlighted by Jeremy Moore’s soccer-off-the-ground-kick for Milwaukee’s opening major.

Milwaukee home by 1 point in Louisville
On Saturday June 21 the Milwaukee Bombers narrowly defeated Ohio Valley in a very fast-moving and entertaining game. Although the scores were close at half time, the Ohio Valley looked like they had the measure of the Bombers with the home advantage.  However, Milwaukee piled on six unanswered goals, including three consecutive goals by star forward Andy Vanica, for a total of 7.2 to 2.1 in the third quarter.
