Newcastle Jets thrash Brisbane 4-0

-

The Newcastle Jets shut out the Brisbane Roar to maintain the best defensive record in the W-League and claim a 4-0 win on Sunday afternoon.

With both teams missing key players, Brisbane were wasteful in front of goal and couldn’t handle the clinical Jets on the counter attack.

Gabe Marzano looked to be the spark for Brisbane early on as she turned her marker on the half way line and continued her run all the way into Newcastle’s box before being halted by Megan Oyster.

Roar were getting the most of the early chances and Emily Gielnik then teed-up Maili Forbes, who forced goalkeeper Hannah Southwell down low to push away her rasping drive.

Newcastle fired back through Caprice Dydasco as she did well to maze her way to the by-line but no one could turn home her teasing square ball.

A lapse in concentration with twenty minutes played would cost Brisbane dearly and allow the Jets to go ahead thanks to Adriana Jones.

Jones found herself wide open after being played through Brisbane’s gaping defence and had plenty of time to pick her spot and beat Haley Kopmeyer to make it 1-0.

The last chance before half time would come to nothing as Marzano failed to control her header from Amy Chapman’s corner delivery.

Gema Simon looked to catch the Roar napping after the break but she could only direct her shot straight at Kopmeyer.

Brisbane needed a quick response and almost had it as Gielnik’s powerful cross into the centre of the box found Forbes, only for her to slip as she tried to turn it towards goal.

Newcastle would make the Roar pay for their indecisiveness as they doubled their lead just ten minutes into the second term.

Dydasco was given too much time on the ball as she dribbled her way into the box and she 2-0, lashing a fierce shot past Kopmeyer.

Brisbane pushed high up the field to try and claw their way back into the game and Newcastle punished them for it with devastating effect, grabbing a third goal on 77 minutes.

Dydasco won possession as the Roar tried to play it out from their own box, sliced apart their defence to find Jenna Kingsley who obligingly made it 3-0, slotting home a one-on-one with the keeper.

Oyster added a fourth at the death to cap off a tremendous performance for the Jets with her curling free kick going in off the post.

A glorious 4-0 win for Newcastle coupled with a defensive record equal to that of league leaders Melbourne City pushes them up to third on the ladder while Brisbane slump to eighth.
