U16s Newcastle Jets return on their throne at the top of the FNSW Boy’s League 2 table after defeating Prospect United SC 4-2 in Sydney on Sunday afternoon! Starting the match at full strength, the Jets began the game at a high tempo that rewarded them with three goals in the first 20 minutes! The match was effectively over as a contest before a quarter of the game was played but it was evident from the number of games played over the past week, the intensity of the game could not be sustained over the duration of the 80 minutes!
Within the first 5 minutes of the second half the Jets added a fourth goal with a header from a nicely taken corner. The sunny conditions of Sunday, a stark contrast to the windy and icy weather experienced in Wollongong the day before, began to take its toll on the Jets players who were playing their 4th game in seven days! The intensity began to drop in the last 20 minutes giving the local team their best part of the game. During this period they managed to draw one goal back through a soft penalty and a second, through a well executed free kick from outside the box.
Despite the late rally by the Prospect players, the Jets collected another 3 points which returned them to the top of the U16s table, 1 point ahead of Hills United who have also played one game more!
Sunday turned out to be a very productive day for the Jets as they were able to accumulate 9 points out of a possible 12 that keeps them in the hunt for one of the first two places in the Club Championship that leads to promotion to FNSW Boy’s League 1 next season!
This match was a wash out Round 11 game that was originally scheduled for 1/5/2022! The U16s Newcastle Jets head back to Sydney on Wednesday evening to contest another wash out game from Round 21 against Nepean FC .
