U12s Away at Timperley A

On a terribly wet morning, played on Astro Turf we met a strong team from Timperley.  The strong nature of some of the challenges threatened to over shadow two good lacrosse teams trying to play both the weather, and the pitch (Not so familiar to Stockport) as soon as the ball was dropped it just runs and runs out of play.  The first quarter, certainly didn't go our way with Timperley rushing to a 4-2 Q1, and the 2nd quarter went Timperley's way 2-1 leaving us trailing 6-3 at half time.  At this stage, a change was needed, and our less experienced defence, was changed around for some more experience and size, and we started to get used to the conditions and started to turn it around.  Stockport managed a 0-2 quarter, and with 15 to go in Q4 we found ourselves 1 down with it all to play for.  The little lads in Stockport Blue did the business, with a 1-3 quarter, with Rhys popping up for the all important last two goals of the day.  Only 2 scorers today, Hugo (6), and Rhys (2), and a terrific performance between the pipes from Aaron, with 12 fine saves (even one with his butt end).  So a tough morning overall, which ended with a victory.

Odds stacked in Jays favour

Solid performance all day by Wil

Any ideas what Thurston is doing?

I am sure there is a reason Cormack is running into space.....lots of space

The team is now taking shape
