Newcastle Jets have notched up their first win of the season after a hard fought 2-1 victory over Perth Glory on Saturday evening at Dorrien Gardens.
Jenna Kingsley - 7
A quiet game for the winger as she spent more time performing her defensive duties as she was needed to help keep Celia under wraps. Should have doubled the lead in the 40th minute with a point blank header.
Nikki Flannery - 8
Buzzed about for 78 minutes and was constantly a threat for the visitors. Took her goal well to open the scoring, provided a pinpoint cross for Kingsley to head over, and should have had a second when she hit the post in the 75th minute.
Tara Andrews - 7.5
Scored in her sixth straight game against Perth. Her well taken goal proved to be the winner and she helped link up the play between midfield and attack, always looking to feed the likes of Flannery and Collister.
Paige Kingston-Hogg - 7
Came on to replace Copus-Brown and did an good job in helping maintain control of the midfield as Perth continued to struggle to create chances.
Lauren Allan - 6.5
Made a few dangerous runs against a tiring Perth defence and helped her side hang on for the win.
Pana Petratos - N/A
Subbed on in injury time. Did well to get a touch before the game ended.
