Roar Youth hit three past Jets

Brisbane Roar Youth have continued their impressive home form with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Newcastle Jets Youth at Spencer Park.

Brisbane Roar Youth have continued their impressive home form with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Newcastle Jets Youth at Spencer Park.

The Roar were on the attack right from the outset and were unlucky not to score in the third minute when Newcastle ‘keeper Jack Duncan fumbled a powerful shot from Rocco Visconte.

Brisbane went even closer to scoring ten minutes later when, after some careful build up play, Alistair Quinn knocked his shot into the path of a flying Visconte at the near post.

Despite his efforts, he was unable to get enough of his foot on the ball to deflect it into the net.

Visconte continued to terrorise the Newcastle defence, getting another clear shot on goal in the 15th minute after a clever flick on from teammate James Meyer, however he overpowered his shot sending it over the bar.

In the 18th minute, Newcastle had a perfect opportunity to open the scoring when Zhang Shuo-s shot off the back of a nicely weighted pass could only be parried into the path of teammate Steven Veleski, however he could do no more than knock it into the hands of Brisbane-s Andrew Redmayne.

The Roar were finally rewarded for their attacking dominance in the 32nd minute.

Luke Brattan, showing off his accurate passing skills, pushed a pinpoint through ball into the box which winger Alistair Quinn placed past the Newcastle custodian with a well-struck shot into the corner of the net.

Quinn was disallowed a second goal in the 40th minute when he pounced on a fumble from Duncan, however the referee-s assistant judged him to be offside.

Although Newcastle pushed forward in the closing stages of the first half, Brisbane maintained their early lead, going into the break with a 1-0 advantage.

The home side opened the second half in the same fashion as the first, sending wave after wave of attack at a scrambling Newcastle defence.

Meyer took advantage of Brisbane-s attacking pressure in the 56th minute when he skilfully dribbled through two Newcastle defenders before unleashing a thundering shot past Duncan to give Brisbane to a 2-0 lead.

It didn-t take long for the Roar to extend their lead to three goals when substitute McLean pounced on a deflection from a Newcastle defender two minutes later to sneakily tap the ball into the net.

The next chance of the game fell to Newcastle-s Shou after he broke loose from the Brisbane defence but in his one-on-one attempt with Redmayne, he pulled his shot wide of the post.

Visconte continued to send a message to Roar coach Ange Postecoglou for a Hyundai A-League call up when he curled a free kick dangerously close to the goal post in the 68th minute, his attempt going only inches wide.

The constant Brisbane attack began to frustrate the Newcastle defence as the games progressed with the Jets players receiving three yellow cards in quick succession but Brisbane held on and finished the game with a clean sheet.

Brisbane Roar Head Coach John Sime was impressed with his side-s efforts labelling it a “quality performance”.

“The boys put in a quality performance, they put in a great first half and really dominated the opposition,” he said.

“The way the boys passed the ball, created chances and finished their opportunities was what worked well for us today.”

Sime also had high praise for man of the match Alistair Quinn, hailing his versatility and his high work rate on and off the field.

“Alistair is a very good player, I have asked him to play in a number of positions this season and he always puts in a good performance,” Sime said.

“I gave him a chance up front today and he did well to capitalise with the goal, he was a threat all match.”
