Jarrod among the Jets' Best in two-goal win

I AM off to sing the team song."

And with that, KSS Jets coach Phil Rimmer jogged to Hervey Bay Sports Club's change rooms, joined his players, and tore into one of the loudest renditions of the team song in recent time.

A Jarrod Best (pictured) hat-trick spurred the Jets to a surprise 4-2 win over United Park Eagles.

"It was great, first hat-trick I've gotten in the Jets' Premier League, and it's our first win of the year which is even better," Besty said. "I can't wait for the team song."

The 18-year-old benefited most from the Jets' tactic of firing long balls to two of their quickest players.

"We've changed our formation and structure.," Rimmer said. "Besty is incredibly fast. He's already good (at finishing), but he could've had four or five.

"We man-marked well tonight, and the new structure we brought in has worked."

Rimmer said it was his side's most intense display so far this season.

The secret to their success was in how they defended and executed set pieces.

"Two weeks ago we were talking about the set pieces (and how it cost victory).

"Tonight we defended our set pieces brilliantly and we scored from one.

"That was difference - that nailed us last time."

The Jets have the bye this week but will travel to Bundaberg on May 13 to face Brothers Aston Villa.
