Jets share the points at home against the Bulls

It was a high-intensity match that could have seen either team take the spoils, but the Jets and Macarthur FC each had to settle for a point after playing out a 2-all draw at McDonald Jones Stadium on Saturday night.

The Jets were forced to do it the hard way, coming from a goal down twice, with Beka and Babalj each getting on the score sheet. Our Jets had a chance to win it late with a strike from Babalj – but was ruled to be offside – and had to settle for a draw.
