1977 Little League Finals Series

Elimination Final - August 13th 1977

Bombers 2.1.13
Blues 0.1.1

Result: Lost by 12 points
Goalkickers: Nil
Best:

At Princes Park, the bigger Bombers kicked 2.1.13 to the Blues 0.1.1 in the Elimination Final. This sees the Blues, consistent Finalists in recent years, drop from the competition and the Bombers go onto to meet the Swans in the First Semi. The Bombers had two brothers playing with the surname of Liberatore, one with the initial of T and the other F (this is not confirmed, but there is a fair chance that it may have been Tony Liberatore and his twin brother who were born in February 1966).
