Emerging Jets girls participating in the National Training Centre (NTC) Challenge at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra have achieved a string of draws and finished 3rd in their group behind NSW and Queensland.

Results for pool matches were:

NNSW 0 – Queensland 0
NNSW 2 – ACT 2
NNSW 1 – NSW 1

The drawn fixtures mean they will play the teams who came 3rd and 4th in Group B – Tasmania and WA.

To wrap up the week, on Friday four (4) All Star teams will be selected to play against each other.

“The first game against Queensland was a close game with neither side able to create any clear cut goal scoring opportunities,’ Northern NSW Football Technical Director Michael Browne said.

‘The second game was disappointing as having gone 2-0 up and looking comfortable, the team ending up drawing a game they should really have won. This meant that the girls went into the final game against NSW needing a win to top the group,’ Browne continued.

‘Despite taking the lead, NSW equalised in the second half and overall a draw was a fair representation of the game. We feel that quite a few of the girls have done well enough to make it into the All Star Teams and we are looking forward to the final games tomorrow,” Browne concluded.

The NTC Challenge is a talent identification/selection opportunity of individual players for Junior National team representation, with the side made of players between the ages of 14-17 years of age.
