The first loss of the season for our Men's Premier Division team against the top of the table North Shore Bombers was a tough one, but the team learnt plenty of lessons to take into the rest of the season. In positive news, a goal to captain-coach and UNSW Exercise Physiology Dean Towers provided a highlight, as well as another great game from Adam Gulden. The news wasn't any better for the Women's Premier Division team, who also went down to the Bombers. Only one goal for UNSW-ES in that game, from Carla Monforte.
