However, in what was free flowing entertaining football, the Bombers regained the ascendency and entered the main break eight points up.

Burgess finished with nine goals and with one game remaining will take some catching in the league goal kicking.
Final score: Alexandra Hills 17.19-121 def. Yeronga Sth Brisbane 13.7-85
