U16s Newcastle Jets ended a great 2022 season with the bitter taste of defeat in their last game on home soil against Hills United. Having secured the 2022 FNSW Boy’s Youth League Two Premiership a week earlier and having learned their opponent in the semi-final play offs a day earlier, the match against Hills United appeared to be the last thing on the mind of some players!
Hills United on the other hand started the game with the mindset that it was a Grand Final and found themselves 4-0 up withing 30 minutes, a score line most people would not have imagined even in their dreams!
In the second half the game was even as a contest but the Jets were unable to rectify the damage from their first half. Despite this, recording 22 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses in 30 matches is not a bad result and winning the Premiership is a great achievement.
