MATCH FACTS: Goals rain at M'boro, Jets blunt Bingera

MATCH Facts is a weekly column that dissects the numbers from the Wide Bay League: attacking and defensive milestones, and other random stats.

Round 11 was the third time 19 goals were scored in a round this season, after similar numbers were posted in rounds 7 and 9.

More than half of the goals scored in the eleventh round came in Bargara's 7-3 demolition of Sunbury.

While 10 goals were scored at Maryborough Cricket Club, only nine goals were scored in the other three games combined.

Across The Waves was responsible for six of those (courtesy of its 6-0 shut-out of United Park Eagles), while Brothers Aston Villa's 2-1 win over Doon Villa continued another bizarre trend.

Much has been made of Brothers' attacking power, but the club seems to regularly concede against Fraser Coast clubs.

Of the 10 goals the Bundaberg club has conceded this year, nine have come in the four games against Fraser Coast teams: Sunbury and United Warriors scored three each, KSS Jets scored two, and Doon Villa had one.

Bingera is the only Bundaberg club to have scored against the powerhouse, but they couldn't get past KSS Jets last week.

The Jets are the first team to keep Bingera scoreless in a game this season, an effort which saw the club slip from first to third on the Wide Bay League table.

It was also the first time the Jets didn't score in a game this year.

It was the third time KSS drew this season, but the club faces the challenge of restricting a ladder-leading side to nil for the second consecutive week.

It won't be easy: ATW has conceded only eight times this season (one of which came via the Jets) and have not lost since round four.

UPE will use the bye to rediscover the form that made them one of the more dominant sides in years past.

The Eagles boast the worst defence in the competition (44 goals in nine games), and were kept scoreless for the fifth time this year, which is more than any other club.
