A-League Wrap: Central Coast triumph, Griffiths rescues Adelaide

25 January 2014 12:43

Central Coast Mariners moved up to second in the A-League following an emphatic 3-0 win over Newcastle Jets on Saturday.

First-half goals from Anthony Caceres, Daniel McBreen and Matt Simon wrapped up a convincing triumph for the defending champions on home soil.

The result means Newcastle have failed to win a league fixture in Gosford since January 12, 2008, losing six matches and drawing three in that period.

Caceres set the tone after 13 minutes, unleashing an unstoppable 25-yard drive that flew past goalkeeper Mark Birighitti.

The Mariners doubled their lead after 32 minutes when McBreen seized possession on the edge of the area and arrowed a left-footed shot into the back of the net.

And the victory was complete when Matt Simon headed home Mile Sterjovski's corner in first-half stoppage time.

Ryan Griffiths' stunning last-gasp goal denied Melbourne Heart a second consecutive win as Adelaide United stole a 2-2 draw.

After Bruce Djite's 22nd-minute strike gave the Reds the early advantage, Harry Kewell coolly capitalised from the penalty spot in the 61st minute following a Nigel Boogaard's foul.

Former Leicester City and Leeds United stalwart Patrick Kisnorbo scored a superb goal 18 minutes later to give Heart the edge but Griffiths' excellent volley from Marcelo Carrusca's corner ensured the hosts had the last word.
