U11s Tournament Mk II....

Over to Brooklands astro turf for the 2nd U11s tournament in 6 weeks... With 8 teams competing, we had 3  qualifying games then into the semi-final.  We did really well, and won all our heats.
The semi-final against Brooklands was really a 'game of 2 halves' with us winning the first half 5-1, but Brooklands coming back to win the 2nd half 2-4. Still, we earned a place in what turned out to be the most exciting lacrosse Final ever played!

Up against a determined Mellor side - who had also won all their qualifying heats - neither team looked like they would ever give up, and after a tense full time, the score stood at 7-7!
With 4 minutes of extra time, Mellor took the lead in the first half, scoring 2 goals to our zero!!
With only 2 minutes left, Danny put 2 goals into the net - taking the game to 'Golden Goal'...
In an extremely tense few minutes, both teams were tiring but giving it their all, and with a pass from Danny, Matias jumped to put our golden goal past the Mellor keeper!!

Extremely well played to both sides who played their hearts out, but it was Stockport's turn to lift the plaque for the second time in two years.
Well done boys!
