The Central Coast Mariners Foxtel National Youth team have succumbed to a 3-0 loss to the Newcastle Jets as a result of goals to Mitch Cooper, Brandon Lundy and Josh Barresi on Sunday at Magic Park, Broadmeadow.

Mitch Cooper opened the scoring for the Jets in the third minute of play and the home side’s win was cemented by Barresi’s penalty in the 71st minute.
In the 60th minute, Lachlan Wales was the next Mariner to create a chance but his shot was handled with class by the Jets shot stopper.
