Jets share the spoils return to No.2 Sportsground

It was a back-and-forth contest in our return to No.2 Sportsground, but at the end of the day, the Jets were only able to take a point against Perth.

It was a tense first half where both teams attempted to feel each other out, but to no avail.

The breakthrough finally came in the second half through Hana Lowry who latched onto a great through ball, before tucking it into the corner of the goal for the visitors.

But the Jets didn’t give up. Late in the second half, Elizabeth Eddy popped up with some link-up play with Lauren Allan, and then slid a shot low into the goal – her first for the Jets in Australia.

Despite having late chances to win the game, the two couldn’t be separated and both took a point away.

See below for the play-by-play review of tonight’s match.

87′ Eddy tries her luck again from almost the exact same spot, but this time, her shot is wide.

74′ Lowry tries a shot from range. It looks dangerous, but it’s high.

71′ A perfect opportunity for House! Harding plays a great ball across the face of goal, but House can’t get her shot away. A great chance goes begging.

45′ Andrews pops over a great ball to Brodigan. Brodigan takes on two defenders and tries to long, curling shot but it goes wide.

44′ An Eddy free-kick is expertly knocked into the danger area, but Perth end any issues, then turn defence into attack. Luckily Taren King works hard and intercepts at the end.

43′ Sakalis receives a yellow card for a tough challenge on Fenton.

39′ A ball somehow slides through the Perth defence and falls for Brodigan in front of goal, but her shot is well saved by Aquino.

36′ Harding again looks dangerous out wide and fires across a ball, looking for someone in the danger area. Aquino intercepts though and stops the danger.

30′ Harding does well to beat defenders and has a chance to finding a free attacker in the penalty area, but her cross is snuffed out by the Perth defence.

26′ A corner poses dangerous for Perth. Andrews gets a part of her head on the cross and it bobbles around the box. It eventually falls in the hands of Aquino though.

22′ Lowry fires a wild shot from a free-kick on goal. Coelho does well to collect the ball on the half-volley.

18′ Jaber attempts a long shot – in similar fashion to the goal she scored a few weeks ago – but it doesn’t trouble the goalkeeper.

16′ Brodigan tries to launch a shot from range, but it’s wide and high.
