It was the classic game of two halves as the Wanderers put behind their mid-week FFA Cup disappointment to dictate the pace in the hot Newcastle conditions.
After 15 minutes Mark Bridge scored his first goal of his second Wanderers stint against the side he scored a Grand Final winner for in 2008, the ball found Bridge inside the D after a memorising Jumpei run ended with a deflected shot which fell into the direction of the former all time Wanderers leading goal scorer. He turned and put his foot through the ball giving it a wicked curve that left Newcastle keeper Jack Duncan no chance.
However after halftime the Wanderers faded out of the match for the second straight week as the Jets got a well deserved equaliser in the 67th minute through Dimi Petratos, a Roy O'Donovan rocket was well saved by Vedran Janjetovic but his parry fell straight to Petratos who slotted home the equaliser.
The Jets would fire many chances in the final 20 minutes of the game but it was only another classy performance bu Janjetovic that saved a point for the Red & Black.
The Jets lost star recruit Daniel Georgievski in the 12th minute due to a hamstring complaint while Chris Herd left the game in the 65th minute after a heavy collision with former Wanderers captain Nikolai Topor-Stanley
