Kyle Sully found Neate from a short corner to put the home side in front. From here on it was all Weston and the full-backs of Ninnis, Hector and Duckett did not put a foot wrong.
Weston continued to dominate and constant pressure and a mixed range of great passes saw Roy Beer add two goals and Turner and Hancock a goal apiece. Kearsey was running rings around the North defence and had a hand in the majority of goals on the day.
After good play from Etchells, a shot cleared off the line by a North body saw another flick given to Weston and Hancock sent O’Neill the wrong way to make it seven.
