The third quarter started in the same fashion with Coles leading the attack and scoring some quality goals and setting up goals for Gahame. Maloney, Farence and Goures showed good form and added to the total with the third quarter ending 13-6.
In the last quarter, Weston's superior fitness was showing as the Navy resorted to old fashioned tactics to try and disrupt Weston's possession. This didn't work and more goals were added to the total.
Weston welcomed back Si Farence and Dan Rhian to the side after a number of years out of the game as they bring much needed experience. Man of the match, sponsored by the Woolpack, went to junior player Gahame, who gave a mature performance and four goals. Many thanks to Joy Coles who ran the table.
