Their 2019 campaign might have been less than ideal but Towns have managed to end their season on a high.

Towns found themselves up against Peninsula Bombers to close the 2019 home and away season at Haynes Oval on Saturday, August 10.

The opening term was a relatively even contest especially in the midfield, although the Bombers managed to hold a nine-point lead at quarter-time.

However, the second quarter saw the wind change in Towns’ favour and they pulled off a seven-goal blitz via Scott Bedford, Rhys Hajinoor, Jeromy Woodley and Sean Gregory to take the lead.
