ECU Souwest Jets' league side opened its account with a 10-goal win over the Rangers, in Round One of this year's Gold Industry Group West Australian Netball League season.

Early offensive pressure saw the Jets secure a nine-goal lead at the first change.

The second quarter told a different story, with the Rangers landing 14 goals to 12.

Playing out a tight contest, the Jets led by eight at three quarter time. The side fired on all cylinders before claiming a 49 to 39 victory.

Returning to the State Netball Centre in Round Two, Western Roar thrashed the Jets in the first term.

Down by nine at the main break, the Jets then trailed the opposition throughout the second half.

The Roar did more than enough to win, 62 to 51.

The Jets Under-20s cruised to a commanding 54 to 38 win over Rangers, but came up short against Western Roar (42 to 61).
