Lambton Jaffas handed Newcastle Jets Youth just their second loss of the season with a 2-0 win at Arthur Edden Oval on Saturday.

Lambton Jaffas handed Newcastle Jets Youth just their second loss of the season with a 2-0 win at Arthur Edden Oval on Saturday.

Two second half goals gave the Jaffas a vital home win after hitting the woodwork twice in the opening forty five minutes and having a number of other close chances.

Alex Palozzi had a chance to open the scoring from the penalty spot after Luke Remington was brought down on the edge of the area but his shot cannoned back off the upright on 15 minutes after Lambton made a positive start.

Newcastle Jets Youth were then forced to clear Kevin Davison-s header off the line on 35 minutes after both sides created half chances inside the penalty area prior to that.

Palozzi hit another thundering strike toward goal this time from a free kick from over 35 yards out which again bounced back off the upright during stoppage time in the first half.

The home side didn-t have to wait long after the break to take the lead and John Majurovski found the bottom corner in a congested penalty area on 52 minutes.

Less than a minute later and Luke Remington looked all odds to double Lambton-s lead with a powerful strike but a brilliant diving save from the Newcastle Jets Youth goalkeeper kept them out.

The three points were confirmed ten minutes from full time when second half substitute Tom Smart headed home from a corner to give Lambton Jaffas a well deserved 2-0 win.

The win moves Lambton Jaffas into fourth spot with their third win of the season still with a game in hand against Broadmeadow Magic; while the loss sees Newcastle Jets Youth relinquish top spot on goal difference to Edgeworth Eagles.

Newcastle Jets Youth created chances and played well but Lambton Jaffas deserved the win and carved out the better opportunities on the day.

Peter McPherson was exceptional in the middle of the park for the home side once again with Luke Remington causing his former team trouble down the left hand side in the opening 45 minutes.

Newcastle Jets Youth will face Hamilton Olympic on Saturday while Lambton Jaffas is away to South Cardiff on Sunday with a possible rescheduled midweek match against Broadmeadow beforehand.
