COBDEN is edging closer to the Hampden league open netball minor premiership.

The Bombers are two games and 34 per cent clear of their nearest rival, Koroit, with two rounds remaining after defeating North Warrnambool Eagles 42-31 on Saturday.

Cobden coach Nadine McNamara puts the Bombers’ strong campaign down to consistency within their team.

She said while other sides had been juggling regular changes, the Bombers had been steady.

Goal attack Jaymie Finch, who works in Melbourne, is the only player who is in and out of the side.

“We have probably been fortunate the majority of the playing group has played every single week and we are really excited to have all the girls at training every week,” McNamara said.

“We can work on our connections. Hopefully our connections are stronger than (teams) bringing in individual players.”

In other games, South Warrnambool was too strong for Terang Mortlake 64-31 and Warrnambool accounted for Hamilton Kangaroos 61-52.
