NINE months ago, with only one win from their last five games, an out-of-form Bombers travelled to Yeronga for an elimination final. They lost by 20 goals.
Last Saturday, Alex Hills again ventured to Leyshon Park, and the circumstances going into the game were eerily similar, but the the result drastically different.
In their most impressive performance of the season, the Bombers collected their second win with a commanding 47 point victory.
Leading at every change, the Bombers rammed home their advantage in the second half to gain a much needed confidence boost.
Mutimer was the Bombers' best as he took control in the middle of the ground. He worked tirelessly all day and opened the game up for the running midfielders.
The old adage that "A week is a long time in football" could not have rung truer, as the Bombers turned their dismal defence into one of their strengths.
The away side pressured their opponents into mistakes and the back six were terrific as the likes of Campbell and Lachlan and Jordan Reilly used their smooth skills to rebound from the back half.
Nick Proud and Micheal Walker gathered plenty of the football, while Burgess kept his goal kicking tally ticking over with four majors.
The Bombers return home this weekend to take on Robina.
Momentum is difficult to gain and easy to lose, so the Bombers must put in a strong performance this week against a competitive Kangaroos side.
