THE Newcastle Jets have started the National Youth League season in exciting fashion, playing out a thrilling 3-3 draw with the Melbourne Victory at Magic Park on Saturday.
Kieran Dover, Andrew Nabbout and Joey Katebian got on the scoresheet for the visitors, but the Jets fired back with three goals of their own.
James Pascoe's side may not have walked away with the victory, but the signs point to another solid season, coming off the minor premiership in the Northern NSW NPL and the additions of several new faces.
The Jets travel to Western Australia next Sunday to tackle the Perth Glory.
