Records falls as Jets run riot in Gosford F3 Derby

Newcastle Jets’ 8-2 drubbing of local rivals Central Coast Mariners in the F3 Derby on Saturday night was not only a timely return to form but also saw the Hunter club set some new Hyundai A-League records.

The Jets’ eight goals at Central Coast Coast Stadium is the most-ever scored by an away team in the Hyundai A-League.

The tally overtakes the previous highest amount scored by Perth Glory, when they put six past the Jets in a 6-1 drubbing in Newcastle in January, 2016.

And the 10 goals scored in the match is also a record, with the fixture become the highest-scoring clash in Hyundai A-League history.

There had been seven previous games where a total of nine goals were scored but, but the 44th edition of the F3 Derby now sits alone at the top.
