Marrar overcame a couple of frights at Temora on Saturday, first from a focussed Kangaroos and then an injury scare to star James Lawton.
The Kangaroos came to play and if it wasn't for missed opportunities, they might have made it even more interesting than what finished an 8.6 (54) to 4.10 (34) win to the Bombers
The teams finished with the same number of scoring shots and Marrar coach Shane Lenon was happy to just bank the points on a wild and wintry day at Nixon Park.
"It was tough conditions and I reckon Temora played the best footy for probably two-and-a-half quarters," Lenon said.
However, with Nick Molkentin producing another big game in the ruck, Jack Reynolds classy again and Toby Lawler and Cal Gardner firing late, the Bombers came home strongly to maintain their winning.
"We had a real good last quarter but they showed us up a little bit and they showed us how to play the conditions in the first half, that's for sure," Lenon said.
It was in the middle of the last quarter that Lawton alarmed the Bombers camp when he came off in some discomfort with a shoulder injury.
"He'll be fine. He came off but we were a few goals up and we didn't put him back on," Lenon said.
"We're pretty confident it's nothing serious and I'd be confident he'd line up against East Wagga."
Jack Cullen kicked three goals for the improving Temora, who had Riley Hubbard play a strong game down back while Isaac Reardon and Nathan Stimson were others to perform well.
