W-League Round 2 Review | Jets cruise past Victory

November 14th, 2016

Newcastle Jets claimed their first win of the Westfield W-League season, beating Melbourne Victory 4-0 on Sunday.

After Natasha Dowie had an early chance saved by Kelsey Wys, the Jets took an eighth-minute lead.

Megan Oyster fired a free-kick from the edge of the area into the bottom corner to put the visitors 1-0 up.

Arin Gilliland doubled the lead with a header from a corner on the quarter-hour mark before Emma Stanbury scored a third for the Jets after taking advantage of a back pass mistake.

The second half was far more even, Lia Privitelli striking the crossbar for Victory just after the hour-mark.

A Dowie header was cleared off the line before the Jets sealed their win through Jenna Kingsley in additional time.

Victory returns to action with a clash against Sydney FC at Lakeside Stadium next Sunday, while the Jets face Perth Glory, home, at McDonald Jones Stadium.

Newcastle Jets coach, Craig Deans was proud of the girls’ performance on the weekend and wants to continue where they left off for their home game this weekend.

“From the game, obviously it was a very good result and a good reward for the hard work the girls put in as well as with sticking to a game plan and being disciplined.”

“It was also pleasing to see that we had 4 different goal scorers, we kept a clean sheet and the girls defended very well as a team.”

For next weekend’s game, Deans said that the girls are really looking forward to playing at home and that they will be working hard to get another win.
