had a difficult team selection job, basically picking everyone who was available! Hull had similar problems, the Trawlermen letting a few players slip through the net & only fielding 11.
Leeds got off to a bright start, easing to a 3-0 first quarter with good ball movement up front. The second period saw a spirited fightback from Hull, with good periods of possession for them, pulling a goal back on a good cut & finish by Jack Stamford.Leeds evened out the quarter with a minute to the half time break.
Games are often won in the third, & this was no exception, with the attack finishing well to pull out to an 8-1 lead, Chris Armstrong
again winning lots of ball at the face off, & Chris Turnbull
constantly stripping Hull's danger man. The final period closed with Leeds deserving their 12-2 result.
Scorers included Goose with 4, Si Bickerton
also with 4, Alex, Chris & Danny completing the tally. Si gratefully handed over last week's Goon tag to a whole host of worthy candidates, Mainly Alex & Goose who seem to have adopted Si's 'cow's arse/ banjo' finishing technique! The two Chris's had excellent games, ably backed up by another mean defensive performance from the back six.
Things to work on include finishing, ground balls & putting games properly out of reach; several times this season we've been in the driving seat all the way, but ended closer than we should! Great start guys, well played to all!
