Mid-season recruit Jye Menzie also continued to make his presence felt, backing up his two-goal performance against Carlton with another two. Tom Cutler was also at his best finishing with a game high 35 disposals.

Unfortunately, injuries struck the Bombers in the second half with Stewart and Reid being forced out of the game.

Despite this, Essendon stood tall and quelled any attempt at a comeback from Sandringham.

The Bombers will now look to continue their hot-streak next week against the Williamstown Seagulls at Williamstown Oval.
