The highly anticipated clash between third-placed Penshurst and second-placed Tatyoon proved worthy of the hype with the Hawks edging out the Bombers by seven goals at the final whistle.
Both sides displayed solid first quarters and could not be separated in goals or goal attempts, each finishing with nine from 14.
However, Tatyoon turned it on in the second term managing several turnovers and winning the quarter 15-6 courtesy of a ten-goal haul from Alex Antonio.
The Hawks held onto the lead throughout the second half despite rallying play from Bombers goal defence Leah Mirtschin and mid-courter Anastasia Walsh.
It was not enough, as the Bombers lost by seven at the final siren.
Zoe Astbury and Jacqueline Mcdougall were again impressive for the Hawks.
