After suffering their first defeat of the season last week, U16s Newcastle Jets are on the road this weekend against 6th placed Bankstown United FC. For the first time this season the Jets have slipped into 2nd spot after Nepean’s 4-1 win over Hills United in a washed out midweek fixture! Bankstown are goal shy, having scored just 20 goals this season to the Jet’s 42 but are very compact at the back. Both teams have conceded the same number of goals 12! It looks like another game during which the Jets will be called upon to unlock a tight defense.
U18s Newcastle Jets sit in 2nd place, 3 points behind league leaders St George City FA, while Bankstown are in last place with one win and two draws all season. The Newcastle team are obviously favourites to collect the 3 points.
U15s Newcastle Jets are also in 2nd spot, 2 points behind league leaders St George City FA, while Bankstown sit in 11th place with just 4 wins all season. As with their u16s counter parts, the U15s Bankstown team are goal shy, having scored 18 goals to Newcastle’s 45! They are compact in defense and the Jets will be called upon to unlock this to come away with the 3 points.
U14s Jets will have their hands full against a Bankstown team in 2nd spot, 12 points in front of the sixth placed Newcastle team. Although the Bankstown team have only lost once all season, they have only scored 26 goals but they are very tight at the back, 11 goals conceded. This will be another close arm wrestle.
U13s Newcastle Jets are flying high in 1st spot, 4 points ahead of their nearest rival, while Bankstown sit in 5th spot 11 points behind. The strength of the Newcastle team is it’s attack with 66 goals scored while Bankstown have leaked 30! The Jets are favourites to come away with the 3 points.
In the Club Championship, the Newcastle Jets have slipped in 3rd spot after last week’s disastrous weekend and a combination of mid-week games. Despite this there are another 14 games to be played and plenty of time to repair the damage. It’s very clear that the first three spots will be contested by Hills United FC, St George City FA and Newcastle Jets.
