KSS Jets set for battle with WBL leaders

KSS Jets are ready for a new challenge a week after it broke a season-long streak.

The Jets became the first team to record a clean sheet against then-Wide Bay League leaders Bingera.

The Bundaberg club, which scored 4.75 goals per game heading into that clash, were held scoreless as the Jets fought for a draw.

The Hervey Bay club will again prepare to face a much more fancied competition leader in Across The Waves, and coach Phil Rimmer was confident his side could pull off the upset.

Rimmer admitted the task was not easy.

"Bingera are a good side. They dominated, but now they've lost their French imports they were the Bingera of old, which I think is beatable,” Rimmer said.

"ATW will be a lot better, they move the ball well and quickly. It'd be nice to hold them to zero.”

ATW crushed United Park Eagles 6-0 last week to move to the top of the table.

The Jets will welcome back goalkeeper Chris Merrison, Brad Gordon and Jacob Lynch, a trio who should add plenty of firepower to the sixth-placed side.

Sunbury Blues will be out to maintain its place in the top four when it hosts United Warriors at Maryborough Cricket Club.

Doon Villa will face Bargara and Brothers Aston Villa play Bingera at Martens Oval, Bundaberg.

All games kick off at 6pm.
