COBDEN coach Nadine McNamara says the Bombers’ ability to shrug off a shaky start against Terang Mortlake was a step in the right direction.
The Bombers overcame a five-goal quarter-time deficit to win 47-40 on Saturday.
“Our accuracy struggled in the first quarter and we picked it up as the game went on,” McNamara said.
“Molly Hutt had a fantastic day.
“She started slowly but worked her way back into the match and had a bit impact.
“She’s a 16-year-old and in her third season.
“I pretty sure she’ll nearly reach 50 senior games as a 16-year-old.”
McNamara also praised veteran midcourter Helene Myers who stepped up from division one three weeks ago to help fill injury voids.
“She’s made her mark and will continue to play open for the rest of the season,” she said.
Cobden hopes its second win of the season – a feat which came at the halfway point of the campaign – will help it reach its potential in the run home.
McNamara said her players were putting in extra work away from training.
