PENSHURST came from behind against Hawkesdale-Macarthur to book its spot in the Mininera and District league grand final.
The Bombers were on the back foot early in the preliminary final at Lake Bolac and trailed at every change before a barnstorming final term set up the 12.6 (78) to 8.9 (57) win.
The Eagles had a 17-point lead at quarter- time and a 16-point advantage at half-time. Their lead was whittled down to five points at the final change.
Penshurst slammed on six goals to one in the final term to book a grand final berth against Tatyoon at Willaura.
The Hawks recorded a three-point win against the Bombers in the second semi-final.
Penshurst coach Grant Ewing said the Bombers showed great character to fight back.
"It was a good win in the end. It was a bit stressful," he said.
"We were going with the wind in the first quarter and had opportunities but didn't convert and when they went into their forward line they did.
"From then on we were playing catch-up footy.
"The turning point came towards the end of the third quarter.
"We got ourselves in a good position and were in touch at three-quarter-time."
Ewing said the Bombers dominated the centre clearances in the final term and their run was important.
Penshurst trio Luke Ferguson, Lee Pye and Taylor McKenry all drew praise from the coach.
Teenager Luke Hamilton came in for his sixth senior game of the season after overcoming a troublesome ankle injury.
"He was outstanding on a wing," Ewing said.
Penshurst's reserves football side and A, B, 17 and under and 15 and under netball sides also made grand finals.
