U20s Newcastle Jets delivered a professional performance at Rydalmere Park on Saturday night collecting their 7th successive victory in as many matches after last weekend’s bye. The Newcastle team dominated play in the first half but lacked movement in the final third against a well structured defence by Western Rage.
In the only opportunity created by the Sydney team throughout the first half, they scored due to a lapse in concentration by the Newcastle defence. Despite the domination, superior technical and physical condition of the Jets, the score remained 1-0 at the break.
In the second half the Jets equalised in the 50th minute with a screamer of a shot from outside the box! Fifteen minutes later a second goal made the score 2-1 and forced the Rage to stop defending and show a more adventurous approach to the match. Spectators were then treated to an exciting game with the Rage trying to score and bring the game level and the Jets wanting a third goal that would secure the 3 points. In the end a simple tap-in in the 90th minute ensured the U20s Jets remain on maximum points after seven games played.
