The tempo settled down and 10 minutes after Dahl’s strike the Untouchables levelled, Aidan Brown benefitting from Cameron Gordon’s tidy backheel to finish well and restore parity for his side at half-time.
Boomerangs took the lead again four minutes into the second stanza through Michael Rinaudo but it took only four minutes this time for Brown to again level the scores, this time through a well struck free-kick.
The pace turned up a notch from there and Rinaudo struck the post at one end for Boomerangs before Jason Farrell smashed home a free-kick moments later to put Untouchables ahead with seven minutes to play.
A quickfire double from Gordon in the dying minutes extended the lead to three goals and sealed the final score.
