Weston Bears midfielder Gary McDermott scored a treble in the Bears’ 3-all draw with Newcastle Jets Youth on Sunday.
Bears coach Trevor Morris said McDeromott was the stand out up front on a day when Weston made a lot of opportunities but were unable to convert them fully.
“A point from the first game is a good start, but I am a little disappointed as I think we should have won,” he said.
“They were given a penalty, which I don’t think was there and another of their goals resulted from a cruel ricochet for an own-goal by one of our defenders.”
