All smiles at Speers Point on Sunday afternoon after the U16s Newcastle Jets notched their 15th win in 19 matches against St George City FA. Despite the two week lay-off by the Newcastle Jets due to two consecutive wash-out games, the U16s had little difficulty putting their Sydney opponents to the sword!
The first goal came from a well taken free kick from just outside the box. The second from poor goalkeeper handling after a free kick just passed the half-way line! The third from a well worked move from the left and a placement of the ball from inside the six-yard box. By half time and with the score line at 3-0, the contest was effectively over.
In the second half the Jets continued to dominate the game but did not add to the score. It should be noted that as many as five U16s players did not participate in this match as they were down to start in the U18s Jets match shortly afterwards! Indeed, these five were joined by another four U16s players on the bench who participated in this game for a total of nine U16s players in the U18s squad. Given the two week lay-off due to wet weather, this was a great win by the U16s and they are now in the final straight for the Premiership in the last 8 remaining games plus the three wash outs.
In other games, praise should be given to the U14s Jets who secured a 2-2 draw against the league leaders who are 15 points ahead as well as the u15s for their gutsy 3-2 win over St George City who are the league leaders in that respective age group.
Finally, a great performance by the U18s who despite going down 3-1 to St George City, the league leaders of that respective age group, fielded as many as nine U16s players in their side!
Next week the Newcastle Jets head down to Gosford to take on Central Coast United.
