World news – Reds in charge, Jets stall in A-L Big Wet


On form Adelaide United kept third place in the A-League standings with an assured 4-1 win over Newcastle Jets at the rain-soaked McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle on Sunday.

It was a fifth straight win for Adelaide – their best winning streak in five seasons – and their ardent self-confidence showed during a one-sided competition against the Jets from the bottom down.

Incredible it was 4-0 at halftime as the Jets were briefly in danger of slipping to a record defeat – a 7-0 defeat also against Adelaide in 2015.

Even so, it was a fourth trot defeat for Newcastle, whose mini-revival in February quickly became a distant memory

Adelaide had a dream start with a 2-0 lead within 11 minutes with goals from Kusini Yengi and Stefan Mauk.

It was a poignant blow for Yengi after a week of testing in which the 22nd Year old online racial abuse suffered after scoring his first A-League goal against Melbourne Victory last week.

Yengi expropriated veteran defender Nigel Boogaard before clinching from the edge of the box.

Then it was Mauk Row and his late run into the box meant a slight end to Craig Goodwin’s cross in a goal that resembled a movement on the training ground.

Adelaide looked into a place that seemed to hold up well after heavy rain hit the Hunter -Region had whipped consistently for the past 48 hours.

Ben Halloran scored five minutes before the break and benefited from Javi Lopez’s centimeter-wide cross.

Goodwin still had time to score from the penalty spot after Yengi flew after a challenge from Nikolai Topor-Stanley.

The Jets barely opened a clear goal opening in the first half, while United could easily have added to their total.

The Jets lost en defender Johnny Koutroumbis within the first quarter of an hour due to an injury after starting the game without the injured experienced duo Jason Hoffman and Ben Kantarovski.

Newcastle captain Boogaard was unusually dismissed by coach Craig Deans at the beginning of the second half as the home side tried to stop their slip.

The Jets solidified after the break and Matt Millar hit the bar before Apo Stamatelopoulos scored a comforting goal on a cross from Ramy Najjarine.
