Carl Thornton in action for the Bears.In a result which encapsulated their season, the Weston Bears lost 2-1 to Newcastle Jets Youth, despite having the better of play and scoring opportunities throughout the game.

The Bears slim chances of making the finals are now all but over after yesterday’s defeat at Thomas and Coffey Park.

Coach Darren Elkin said 2012 will go down as a year of missed opportunities for the Bears who sit seventh with 17 points on the NBN State League ladder.

Elkin said he was disappointed with yesterday’s result, but not with the endeavour shown.

“We created enough opportunities to win three games, but we could not convert them.

“It’s been one of those years when we have just been unable to take our chances.

“And when you don’t take your chances it always come back to bite you on the bum.”

The Bears dominated early play only to see the Jets score on the counter-attack and take a 1-0 lead at half-time.

Again after half-time Weston dominated play and set up numerous scoring chances but after squandering them, the Jets took full advantage of their opportunity in front of goal and scored.

With the score at 2-0, Jamie Subat managed to finally get the Bears on the scoreboard.

“It would be of greater concern if we couldn’t create chances on goal, but we have created plenty in all our matches,” Elkin said.

“Our problem has been finishing and that creates frustration and it all just compounds itself.”

Elkin said the Bears had needed to win their four remaining games before today’s fixture to make the finals.

“We’ve lost one of those four so that is not going to happen now. It’s frustrating but I can’t fault the guys’ endeavour they really have tried.”
