Newcastle Jets have scored 16 goals in a lopsided friendly on Thursday night, while Adelaide United drew 1-1 with SA NPL club Campbelltown City on Wednesday.
Firstly to Newcastle's regional tour where they won 16-0 against a Northern Inland Select side at Scully Park in Tamworth.
Irish recruit Roy O'Donovan netted a hat-trick within 15 minutes as the Jets ran riot, following on from Tuesday's 7-0 win over a Football Mid North Coast Select side in Port Macquarie.
First-half braces from Andrew Nabbout and youngster Joel Champness, along with a Dimitri Petratos penalty extended the lead to 8-0 at the break.
O'Donovan added his fourth shortly after the commencement, while Nabbout completed his personal hat-trick just past the hour.
The Irishman netted twice more to finish with six goals for the game, while Kosta Petratos (two goals), Ivan Vujica and Devante Clut also scored late in the second half. Clut had scored a double in Tuesday's 7-0 win.
On Wednesday night, Adelaide United could only manage a 1-1 draw with Campbelltown City at Steve Woodcock Sports Centre.
Baba Diawara, making his first start in pre-season, levelled on 62 minutes from a corner.
Reds boss Marco Kurz said: “I think it was a good test, it was a new line-up today and we played a new formation playing 4-4-2,” he said.
“And it’s a good wake up call for the next week (against Melbourne Victory).”
Meanwhile, Victory proved too good for Oakleigh Cannons 5-2 at Jack Edwards Reserve on Wednesday.
However, Victory survived a scare after Oakleigh brought it back to 2-2 shortly after half-time.
Mitch Austin scored twice in the first-half, before goals from Jai Ingham, Nicholas Sette and Pierce Waring settled the contest.
