CODBEN coach Mel Starr believes her side is on track to right the wrongs of 2018 after securing back-to-back minor premierships on Saturday.
The Bombers took a giant step towards redemption after scoring their second victory over two-time reigning premier Koroit, the team which beat them in last year's decider.
Starr said her side's confidence in each other was starting to show through and credited it as a driving force heading into the finals.
"The girls really backed each other up and they were up and about," she said of the 52-43 win.
"It got them across the line and even when things weren't going well they were able to dig themselves out of it."
The first-year Bombers coach said the minor premiership was not her side's goal in 2019.
"It was about going one step better than last year," she said.
"We did finish minor premiers last year but for us it's that next step and we will be trying to keep our momentum going."
Molly Hutt secured her second best on court performance in a row. Starr has been impressed with the recent form of the teenager.
"Molly is only 18 and she stepped up today in a best on court performance which showed a lot of her maturity," she said.
"Spending time in the wing attack role has benefited her goal attack game. She is finding space and opening up the court a lot more and it gives her the chance to create opportunities."
Hutt was well supported in the shooting circle by the experienced head of Emily Finch, who finished with 29 goals.
The Bombers final two games come against finals aspirant Terang Mortlake before a final round date with neighbours Camperdown.
Koroit still holds onto second spot by two points with North Warrnambool Eagles and Warrnambool closing in following their victories.
The Saints play Port Fairy and the Bloods in their final two matches.
