U12s V Poynton B

In this years Onundaga Cup, our first round game drew us up against Poynton B for the first time this year.  Not knowing what to expect, the lads were extremely focused and ready for the task ahead.  Unfortunately, Poynton could only muster 9 players and we played the game as a 9 a-side affair.  So we lined up, on a bitterly cold day, hoping to play well and proceed to the next round.  The lads didn't disappoint, racing to a Q1 lead of 6-0, Q2 4-0, Q3 2-0, Q4 3-0 leaving us as the 15-0 victors.  During the game we managed 9 different scorers, changed our keepers around, and limited Poynton B to just 3 shots all game.  Todays scorers were Jack, Hugo, Ashley, Aaron, Rhys (2), William, Cameron (2), Luke (4), Joseph B (2).  I am sure there will be tougher challenges ahead, if we have aspirations of reaching those finals in Rochdale.
On a day as cold as today, our keepers weren't going to stay in the crease
