Bombers Take 2nd Place at US Footy Nationals

The Milwaukee Bombers men's side, entering the tournament as the bottom seed in pool A of Division Two, emerged with three victories to secure a spot in the Division Two Grand Final against Calgary.

On Saturday morning, the Bombers jumped to an early lead against the San Diego Lions. The Bombers would finish the game 6.3 (39) to 3.6 (24). In the afternoon leg, Milwaukee and Nashville fought to the final horn, with Milwaukee emerging with a two point victory thanks to a last second goal by veteran Bruce Beilfuss. 6.5 (41) to 6.3 (39).

On Sunday, the Bomber took care of business early against the North Carolina Tiger winning 5.13 (43) to 0.0 (0) to finalize a spot in the Grand Final against Calgary.

In the final, Calgary's first half push, combined with a full interchange of 6 players and thirteen Australian players, proved too powerful for the Bombers to match. Calgary took a quick early 3 goal lead which was the difference in the end. Milwaukee fought back hard in the second half, but the 2x20 format did not provide enough time. Final score 5.8 (38) to 3.2 (20).
