U12s at Home to Norbury

Having been around the youth set up at Stockport Lacrosse, for a number of years, this is the first time we have been unable to field a 10 man team for a game.  Unfortunately, due to half term and a few injuries we found ourselves in this predicament this morning.  However, that does allow others the opportunity to step up and be more influential in the proceedings.  Due to the generosity of Norbury, and the loan of a couple of players on a rotating basis we were able to get a 10-a-side game underway.  As seems to be the pattern of recent weeks, we don't seem to be able to get off to the best of starts, being unable to dominate face and not gaining possession of the ball, we quickly find ourselves 0-5 down at the end of Q1, and with Q2 not showing any signs of it getting better with a 1-4 quarter in Norbury's favour, we find ourselves 1-9 down with half the game played.  A change around of personnel, allowed us to gain a little of the possession in Q3, giving us the opportunity of a decent Q3, coming in 2-1 in our favour before finishing off the game with a 2-4 Q4.  leaving us on the wrong end of a 5-14 defeat.  Delighted to welcome Indra, to the team.  Well done to Jay, in between the pipes, who put his body on the line (more than once) to give the scoreline a reasonable look to it.  Goals today from Hugo (3) and Cameron (2).
Unfortunately this one goes just wide

Will B keeping the ball moving

Jay, having a strong game in goal

Even if he is a little camera shy

Indra, looking like he has played many times before

Ben putting the effort in

Ethan, looking the part

Hugo, breaking free from Norbury attention

Any guesses?

Dead End that way!

Underarm shot from Cameron

Indra still pushing hard all the way to the end

We did get the opportunity to allow other players to try their hand at face, with good contributions from Will B, Ben and Jacob B, showing that there is a great deal of potential.
