TARRAWINGEE coach Finton Eames said Sunday’s thrilling two-point victory over premiership favorite Milawa has given his side a massive confidence boost ahead of this week’s interleague bye.
While the Bulldogs remain one of the competition’s pacesetters, they weren’t expected to be able to contain the Demons’ talented line-up.
But they did just that, breaking even with Milawa right throughout the afternoon before edging ahead late to win 16.11 (107) to 15.15 (105).
Eames said the Bulldogs knew it was going to be a tough match but was delighted with the result.
“They were obviously coming in with some good form and we were probably going just okay,” he said.
“It was always going to be hard so to come away with the points was really pleasing.
“It’s a real confidence booster for the guys ahead of the bye this week.
“It was a crucial win too because it keeps us in touch with the top four.”
