FOOTBALL: The Chinchilla Bears have executed a precision win against the West Wanderers at home.

While an early red card didn't help their chances, the West Wanderers never looked in control of the game, which was dominated by Chinchilla's passing game and ball movement.

Bears coach Brett Bowman said he was "extremely happy” with Chinchilla's defence and that the home side "worked together and played as a team.”

"It's still early in the season but this puts us at least tied for the top of the table, which is great,” he said.

"It's a good position to be in, we just need to keep working on finishing and focusing on improving that ball movement and making the most of the opportunities we are given.

"There were quite a few opportunities we didn't capitalise on and that'll be the focus of our training over the next couple of sessions.

Mark Johnson, Chris Cobb, Matt Hoffmann and Mclaren Hope were the four goalscorers in Chinchilla's 4-0 win at the Chinchilla Recreation Grounds on Saturday night.

The Bears' next home game is at 7pm on Saturday, April 22.

"We'd love to see as many specators along as we can get - this will be a high quality game. We're taking on Willowburn, who are going well at hte moment.”
