A rotated U14s squad come up with the goods at Heaton Mersey
Great display by some of our less experienced players.... and Heaton Mersey's fantastic GK!
Could the Mellor Boys keep up their “100%” win record in the league this season?
The match against Heaton Mersey started with both teams looking reasonably well matched. A few missed chances for both teams and finally Mellor broke the deadlock with a goal from Jake assisted by George. Josh quickly followed this up with a solo effort that made it 2- 0 at the end of the first quarter.
A lot of fast play from both sides as the second quarter began. It was only a matter of time before the strong looking number 3 for Heaton Mersey opened the scoring for them. Jamie hit the post 3 times along with scoring a couple more for Mellor. Heaton Mersey replied with another goal and Mellor came to life with goals for Jack Royle, Oli and Josh giving Mellor a 7-2 lead as we went into the 3rd quarter.
Joey was lively in midfield and often in attack just missing out on a few occasions before he found the net. The defence continued to do a great Job of keeping Heaton Mersey at bay. A fast pass from George found Josh who passed it on to Jack R who’s shot rebounded only to find itself back in Jack’s stick. He didn’t miss the second time!!! A great fast run by George, laying it off to Jack R to score his third of the game and end the quarter with Mellor in front 11 – 2.
Ned had made a number of great saves and along with the Mellor defence he continued to frustrate any efforts from Heaton Mersey to score. Yet another great run by George who having dodged a number of Heaton Mersey players fed it through to Jack L who put it away passed a goalie who had made a number of great saves throughout the game. A further goal for Josh, a good goal by Noah, and further goals for Joey and Jamie and it was all over. A convincing win by Mellor against a good natured and skilful Heaton Mersey.
Our unbeaten record in the league continues!!!
