THE A-League season opener last Friday saw the Newcastle Jets go head-to-head with Sydney FC at Allianz Stadium.
Newcastle was defeated by Sydney 2-0.
Both teams started out strong, but in the 36th minute Sydney FC captain Alessandra Del Piero opened the scoring.
Sydney’s second goal was incidentally set up by Jets players.
In addition to a new team structure, injuries also had the Jets at a disadvantage – star striker Emile Heskey nursed a knee injury in the stands.
The Jets will meet Perth Glory at Hunter Stadium this Sunday, October 20, at 3pm.
