Jess Thomas saves 2nd spot for Boomers

AN 89th-minute goal from Jess Thomas was the get out of jail free card for Boomers on Sunday.

The 2-2 draw with Albury United put them in second spot, a point behind Wodonga Diamonds but with a game in hand.

Boomers will play the catch up game against bottom-placed Wangaratta on Sunday, not long after playing third-last St Pats.

Two wins would give them a two-point buffer on Diamonds with a game against defending Cup champions Albury City in the last round.

Boomer Keira Hayes said she was told they had equalised but couldn’t remember it.

“I got a knock to the head in a contest in the box and suffered concussion,” she said.

“So I was on the sidelines for the end of the game and can’t remember much at all.”
