United Warriors exact its revenge on KSS Jets

HERVEY Bay earned a fresh coat of purple after United Warriors' important win over KSS Jets.

The Warriors came from a goal down to beat their local rivals 3-1, win the Rally For A Cause Charity Cup, and send the Jets hurtling to the bottom of the table.

"You never want to lose to Jets,” injured Warrior Sam Hill said. "We had a good seven years, they won one game earlier this year and now we're back on top.”

The Jets led courtesy of a Jacob Lynch goal, but Warriors Brad Mitchell, Steven Rankin and former Jet Chris Martelli ensured the Warriors won two consecutive games for the first time this year.

The sweetest revenge for United was that KSS are now bottom of the table.

"We haven't been down that end of the table in 10 years and we don't want to start now,” Hill said.

United was the only Fraser Coast team to taste success in a frenetic penultimate round.

Sunbury dropped to fifth after its 2-all draw with United Park Eagles, while Across The Waves beat Doon Villa 4-2. Bargara beat Brothers Aston Villa 2-1.

The top four is currently comprised of teams from only Bundaberg. Sunbury is the only club that can force its way into the finals.

The Blues, who are one point behind Bargara, must win or draw when it hosts the Jets at Maryborough Cricket Club on Saturday. It won't be easy, as the Jets try to avoid the wooden spoon.

Doon Villa hosts UPE at Villa Park, while United host Brothers Aston Villa.
