U12s Away at Brooklands

In a repeat of an earlier fixture, we arrived expecting a relatively easy morning.  Potentially we underestimated our opponents, and the improvements which they have made over recent months.  As the game started we were all relaxed, missing a couple of early catches and openings, with the weeks previous cancellation clearly showing.  However, our opponents weren't so generous, and a soon as they had an opportunity they seized upon it, and quickly raced to a 3-0 lead before we awoke from our slumber.  Realising, we were in a game the young guns placed 4 passed Brooklands in the last few minutes of Q1, giving us a 3-4 quarter.  As Q2 came about, our debutant Daniel was moved to face and we found a winning formula of Daniel at face, and Hugo quickly coming in from the wing gaining possession more times than not and Q2 was dominated by Stockport with a 1-6 quarter.  With Brooklands not electing to take the free clear, the face was competitive throughout, and Q3 went our way with another strong 1-7 performance.  Q4 we changed the attack and defence around, providing a closer 3-4 quarter leaving us with a 8-21 victory. 
Overall a more competitive game, than the scoreline suggests.  A massive welcome to Daniel, 6 different scorers of Luca (2), Jay (2), Hugo (6), Ben (2), Rhys (4), and Cameron (6), with 10 of the goals assisted.

Looking good in Stockport Blue
