Jaffas And Magic Can't Break Saturday Stalemate
I'd normally get to this match with bells on but due to the fact I had my own playing commitments on Saturday I was unable to make it to Arthur Edden Oval for this one. Magic and the Jaffas drew 2-2 in a result that probably benefited the home side more considering recent results.
The scoring was opened by a Daniel Casciaroli own goal but it didn't take long for the visitors to hit back through Michael Finlayson. Peter Haynes was awarded a penalty and made no mistake the put Magic in front but Riley McNaughton provided an equaliser for the home side.
In the lower grades, Lambton got the best of a poor-performing Magic reserves who are still winless after three games whilst the visitors were too strong in the Under 19's, winning 4-0.
Edgeworth Back In The Winners' Circle
Adamstown couldn't produce a repeat of Wednesday night's comeback and went down 2-0 to a resurgent Edegworth Eagles outfit. The result shoots Edgeworth up the table whilst Adamstown remain in ninth position after four matches.
In the lower grades, Adamstown were outdone in the 22's 3-1 and went down 4-0 in the Under 19's. The 3-1 result took the Edgeworth 22's into equal top spot on the league table.
Jets Youth Get The Job Done At Lisle Carr Oval
The Newcastle Jets Youth side recorded their second win of the campaign with a 3-1 victory over Charlestown City on Sunday. The Blues will be disappointed with the result but it was a good day for the visiting Jets who now enter the top four, albeit without the right to play finals football this season.
In the lower grades, the Jets 18's remained at the top with a 3-1 victory whilst Charlestown's 19's picked up a 1-0 result in the opening match of the day.
Hamilton Rocket Into Third Position
Hamilton Olympic put the late disappointment of Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Adamstown behind them with a strong 5-2 victory over a depleted South Cardiff. The visitors moved into third position on the league table and remain just one of two unbeaten teams, along with Broadmeadow.
Simon Mooney was on hand for two goals as well as Pat Brown and a South Cardiff player conceding an own goal and it wouldn't be a Hamilton game in 2015 without Kane Goodchild bagging a goal.
The visitors were too strong in both the 22's and 19's. Goalscorers in the 22s for Olympic were Cody Higgs, Thomas Cox, Alex Tserepas and James Robinson in a 4-1 victory whilst the 19's won 2-0 with goals to Luke Vallone and Dominic Smith.
Weston Bears Overcome Maitland In The Derby
The first Maitland-Weston derby in twelve years ended with the visiting Weston Workers Bears coming out 1-0 winners. A spirited display from the home side but it wasn't enough to beat a Weston side that moved to the top of the table with the clean sheet victory.
Weston clean swept the whole day with a 1-0 win in the Under 22's and a 2-0 victory in the Under 19's. Not the best day for Maitland football but a good day nonetheless for Weston.
