A powerful first half set Marrar on course for victory in the under 17s grand final.
The young Bombers dominated North Wagga early and despite a late rally, ran out 12.10 (82) to 7.11 (53) winners at Robertson Oval.
Coach Isaac Hill with thrilled with how Marrar asserted their dominance early.
“They were switched on and ready to go,” Hill said.
“As the weather deteriorated scoring became a lot harder but we had already gained an advantage.”
Archie Howard started things off with two goals in the first two minutes and three in the first quarter to help the Bombers to a 23-point lead at quarter-time.
Marrar extended their advantage to 47 points at half-time helped by two quick goals to Rhys Mooney while his younger brother Nathanael booted his second to take the scoreline to 9.8 (62) to 2.3 (15).
A determined North Wagga kept Marrar scoreless in the third quarter but couldn’t capitalise with only four behinds of their own.
The Saints had more luck in the final term with Alliance Irishua and Zac Watts snaring two goals each and Toby Meriton goaling in the dying seconds but they couldn’t recover from a slow start.
Hill thought his team knew the job was done coming into the last quarter.
“North Wagga outscored us in the last quarter but we still kicked enough goals to be comfortable,” he said.
North Wagga’s Jackson Kerr was a surprise winner of the Robert Turner Medal for best on ground while Rhys Mooney, Nathanael Mooney and Drew Beavan were all very good for the Bombers.
