Newcastle proves their youthful team belongs in the W-League by earning first ever point against Melbourne City.
VAN EGMOND STILL SHINES IN NEWCASTLE
A Newcastle prodigy and longtime Jet, but this offseason van Egmond decided to change her allegiance to Melbourne City.
Before this season she has played for other teams other than Newcastle, but her career with the Jets has been the longest and it's her hometown club.
Van Egmond has scored 16 goals for Newcstle and quite a few on their home field. So it was only fitting that her first goal with Melbourne City happen on that same field.
And of course it had to be quite possible the best goal of the Round 1 around the league.
Claire Emslie had her back toward goal just outside the 18-yard box. She dropped the ball back to van Egmond who one timed a rocket of a shot into the lower left of the goal.
A sight Jets fans have seen often from van Egmond, but in today’s match it was in the wrong jersey.
Aside from the goal van Egmond was still quality for Melbourne City creating chances for her teammates and having her usual dominant way in the midfield.
She looked comfortable in City colors and van Egmond will be one the team will look to this season.
