The final period started with more Sheffield control but Mellor picked up 2 goals to go ahead . Sheffield evened the game when Fernando passed to Brammer who fired past the keeper.
Final Score Mellor 8 Sheffield 8
For the second week running the Steelers have performed below par. The outstanding performance of the game was stand-in keeper Sam Quinton who pulled off at least half a dozen excellent stops to keep Sheffield in the hunt. The boys will need to work on their shooting and basic skills before our Junior and Schools final if we are to perform to our potential.
