U12s at Home to Poynton A

After 1 week without a game or training, were we going to be up for a good game?  Well for 30 minutes Stockport turned up, and for the other 30 we can blame on lethargy!  As all the great football coaches say "Its a game of Two Halves" - Well for our game "Its a game of four quarters" actually.  In a game where we won our fair share of Face Offs, and had reasonable possession, we simply did nothing with the ball for the first two quarters.  Missing a few of our early chances, Poynton capitalising on our mistakes, by the end of Q1 we were down 1-4, and Q2 didn't fair much better with Poynton having a little more of the possession making 3 unanswered goals.  So there we are, 1-7 down at half time, we needed to pull our socks up and try and rescue a little pride.  Getting into our stride, we managed to hold Q3 at 2-2, before getting a 3-1 quarter in Q4.  Difficult to see what went wrong, it just didn't happen for us today.  Goals from Luke (3), Cameron (2) and Hugo, and 12 saves from the keeper, made the 2nd half a more enjoyable experience.  A rest week this week, then a tough game against Mellor before Christmas.
First face, and we gain possession
