U14s away at Brooklands

First trip to Brooklands for the U14s, and we weren't sure what to expect.  Playing in the same vein as the last few weeks in the first quarter just didn't cut it though, and Brooklands got goal after goal past our defenders before the boys started to wake up.  With score at 7-2 at the end of Q1, there was a lot to do!
And, they did it... Narrowing the goal difference in Q2, the blues only lost the quarter by one goal, and the score was 11-5 at half time.  Back on the pitch for Q3 the blues turned the tables and held Brooklands to just 1 goal to our 5 in the quarter.  The fourth quarter was the most gripping with each team fighting to stay on top. With less than 3 minutes left in the game, Ed scored to take the score to 13-14, but Brooklands got one right back to bring it even with little time left on the clock.  In the final minute of the game, Mike managed to score, giving Stockport a hard-fought victory in one of the best games of the season.  Great game.
Final Score - Brooklands 14 : Stockport 15
Quarter scores:  7-2 / 4-3 / 1-5 / 2-5
Next fixture - no game next week, training on Saturday instead

U12s - next fixture: at home vs Mellor in the last game of 2013.



Coming around

Trying to bring him down....

Down, but still got the ball

having a go at pushing him off the ball....

Now for one of theirs

Big strides

Star jumps....??

I'll take that while you're not looking!

Doing a bit of stick-wielding



Top corner for Mike

And another one!

Other side this time - keeping the goalie on his toes

Jump to it!

Stay right there!

Race you!

oh not him shooting on that goal again!

Ready for the push

Take that!

look out behind you


stumbling through

And he's away with it

trying for a trip?

Coming over your way Sam!

Brooklands sandwich!

my ball!

A game worth winning - smiles all round
