In icy conditions at Jenson Park Sydney, U16s Newcastle Jets proved too strong for Bankstown United FC on Saturday afternoon. Straight from kick off the Newcastle team were awarded a penalty when the Sydney goalkeeper tripped a Newcastle player inside the box! Despite awarding the penalty which was easily converted into a goal, the goalkeeper received neither a red or even a yellow card!

The Jets controlled possession throughout the half and had another goal scored from a well taken corner but the referee decided that the Bankstown goalkeeper was fouled, despite video footage showing he mishandled the ball and was not touched by any Newcastle player!

The second half proved more balanced with the local team being more adventurous in the middle of the field but lacking the final touch. As the game wore on, Bankstown attacked the Newcastle goal in the hope of pinching a draw while the Jets threatened with a second goal through quick counter attacks.

The game finished in a similar way to how it started with the Jets scoring in the final minute after catching the Sydney siders on the break!

This was a great result considering the number of players unavailable through sickness, suspension or playing up in the U18s. It also places U16s Newcastle Jets in 1st place on the points table with the best attack and the best defense of the competition!
