NPL Round 4
The young Bears travelled to Speers Point to play NPL newcomers Lake Macquarie.
Already with some great performances under their belts it was very pleasing to see the teams maintain their approach of playing the right way and treating each game with as much enthusiasm as their first.
Well done everyone - keep it up!

The senior grades made the well known trip to Adamstown Oval to face old foes Rosebud.
The U18s set the day off to a flyer with a fine 3-2 win. Goals to Ben Priest, Ben Scheib and Will Forbes.
It was great to see the 20s also get back in the winners circle with a 2-0 victory via goals to Will Myers and Lachlan Ragg.
First grade couldn't have started the game any better when after only a few minutes and on his debut for the Weston Cooper Buswell pounced and slotted home for a 1-0 lead.
What followed in the next 15 minutes saw Weston go from one up to 3-1 down and what was looking like a long afternoon.
As has been the case Weston are creating plenty of opportunities and there was no shortage in this game either with the finishing just letting them down.
As the half wore on it was terrible to see former Weston player, double centurion and Honorary Member, Robbie Turnbull, sustain what looked to be a serious knee injury.
From all of us at Weston and the greater football community we wish you a full and speedy recovery mate.
The second half began well for Weston as they began to put together a number of promising attacksand it was James Thompson who found the breakthrough finishing expertly to reduce the deficit to 3-2.
Weston continued to probe and it was an intercept and mazy run toward goal by new lad Cooper Buswell that had people off their seats as he bulged the net and claimed his brace to tie it up at 3-3.
Adamstown did begin to press harder and had a number of chances. By now the game had really opened up and although both sides could have claimed the 3 point fatigue had its effect on finishing and 3-3 it stayed.
